Avi Goldfinger /// Jackson-Tel Avivby David Pearl | 25.12.14
While it’s Christmas day in Jackson, Alabama in Tel Aviv, Israel in another warm winter day with the sun above and no Santa in the Horizon. So all is left is to listen to good music and imagine that Santa is on his way with some snow inside his palms.
Avi Goldfinger’s new single “Jackson-Tel Aviv” and its’ video is exactly the right song to listen to right now while sitting next to the imaginary Christmas tree. A great Country tune, a music style that is very rare in this area accompanied with great storyteller lyrics inspired by and an homage to the great Johnny Cash & June Carter. The new single is taken from Avi’s forthcoming project called “What Do You Know About Jesus Anyway?”, a combination of a book with 74 poems he wrote, a CD with 14 composed songs taken from the book and 14 accompanied videos, which will be revealed in time via his website.
This special and ambitious project is taking the old musical experience to a new and different levels by combining all the medias together and gives the listeners a new form of a musical journey, especially with Avi’s mesmerizing songs and silky voice and his exploration of different kinds of musical influences.
Get a copy of the project at his show on the 12th of January at “OzenBar” and watch the video for “Jackson-Tel Aviv” below.
