Geva Alon is an Israeli folk/rock musician who writes and sings in English. He was born in 33 years ago in Kibbutz Ma'abarot, and started playing guitar at the age of 12. In the year 2000, he became the founding member of the rock trio The Flying Baby, which released two albums: Inner World (2002) and Pain to Give (2004).


In 2006, he released his first solo album, Days of Hunger. The combination of his distinct voice and original tunes made him an instant success in Tel-Aviv's folk-indie scene. 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.

Enjoy and be warned: once you start listening to Geva Alon, it is very hard to stop…
