I'm not a showoff. My happiness comes from very basic and simple things.
Two of my biggest musical inspirations are Kurt Cobain and Chris Cornell.
GFY' is about the thin line between love and hate. It's about statements that are said out of anger that unfortunately cannot be taken back.
I was living in Bangkok and I had a girlfriend during this time, she was traveling and I was jealous. Y'know, I thought she might meet someone, might do something, and I was just worried, and I went and I wrote 'Nevermind.'
Love makes you blind. One day you're in love, the next day you wake up and realize that not everything is perfect.
My song 'Nevermind' was named after Nirvana's album, so when I had to choose a cover for my Spotify Singles session, choosing 'Like A Stone' by Audioslave was the natural next choice, as I grew up constantly listening to the song.
At the age of 15, I bought a USB microphone on a trip to the United States with my family, and that was my first recording studio.
I packed my bags and I moved to Bangkok, Thailand. I spent a year there like completely isolated, no Wi-Fi.
Music is way stronger than politics.
My parents raised me right.
I started to record songs and put them on YouTube and people laughed behind my back.
I had a lot of haters at school, which is a scar I still have.
I made an a capella cover of Kesha when everyone else was listening to Miles Davis and people didn't like it. They imitated me.
People recommended that I didn't sing at the school as a jazz major. So I sang and produced on my own time, but I didn't have a lot of support. I just did it anyway.
I get messages from Palestinians and from Iranians... everyone is, like, the same.
I met a girl, and two months after we met I wrote 'Nevermind.' And 'Never Go Back' is actually a song I wrote two or three days after the breakup, after a year and a half. Straight continuation of the story.
If I don't feel anything, I don't write music.
In Israel, I don't do any interviews at all. I don't want to be a celebrity in Israel.
I don't even have the plaques in my house - the gold and platinum-selling plaques. I gave them to my parents and grandparents. It was never about the numbers, never about the money. It was always about the music. That's all I care about.
There are so many talented Israelis - musicians and actors and everything.
