EDITORS’ NOTES

Wherever you find an Israeli, you can be sure that a Shlomi Artzi recording is not far behind. He is the quintessential Israeli rock songwriter who, since the ‘70s, has plotted a path into the mainstream. Indeed, Artzi started out as just another pretty face, fresh out of the navy's singing band, but he chose rock and complex lyrics over meaningless pop—and success eluded him. Only a decade later, his material was publicly recognized as groundbreaking, and by the ‘90s, he had become a top-selling artist in Israel.
