Assaf Shatil /// Hourglassby David Pearl | 03.11.13
The false lies of the hesitating winter requires of me to create the winter atmosphere by myself.
That is where Assaf Shatil comes in with his beautiful and winter flavoured debut album “PINE”. He is a Canadian-Israeli singer-songwriter that came back to Israel after many years abroad where he acquired his piano and Jazz skills among other things. Since he came back he has wrote songs for many musicians and taken part in Efrat Ben Zur’s incredible album “Robin” as well as many other jazz projects.
“PINE” is a piano driven album, in which it is the someone’s destiny for the piano to be more like an extension of the human body. The album is composed of twelve heart breaking and beautiful songs mastering the beauty of the piano and Assaf’s lyrics. This is the perfect album for this winter and any winter from now on.
