His second solo album, The Walls of Sound, was released in 2007, and included a cover version of David Bowie's "Modern Love," which became a hit on the radio, and made Alon a household name in Israel. In 2009, he released his third album, Get Closer, after spending ten months traveling and performing in the States.

Alon has played in several coveted festival shows, alongside well known musicians, such as Macy Gray and Yo La Tengo. In 2011, after promoting Get Closer in Europe, Alon released his fourth album, In the Morning Light. On November 19, 2012, his third album, Get Closer has been certified as "gold album" in Israel.
