The album “Calling” was written in a very tumultuous time in our lives, both internally and externally. The political situation in Israel was depressing and it seemed every effort to go in the direction of peace was constantly threatened. Exploding buses, national mourning, a terrible war in Bosnia and tragedy in Tibet..all these were inspiration for the songs we wrote during that time. Not to mention the painful yearnings of the heart.
I know many people found “Calling” difficult to swallow after the more tender, acoustic music we were making before. But for me, it was almost a declaration of independence, like saying: this is who I am and what I have to offer, honestly. My musical and lyrical considerations have always been purely artistic and emotional, true to myself first and foremost, for I believe I cannot expect or deserve anyone?s attention otherwise. In that sense, “Calling” was truly my ‘calling’, and is very dear to me to this day.
