Oren Lavie

Sunday, January 17, 2010

This morning, a friend sent me a Facebook message simply stating, "hey, you would like this video, it's pretty cool."

Understatement of the week.

Hearing the first chords of "Her Morning Elegance", coupled with Oren Lavie's hush hush vocals, was like being instantly smitten by someone, or at least a mood. Thus, copious amounts of googling commenced over the Israeli-born acoustic instrumentalist, whose name I won't soon forget. I haven't been this excited about discovering an artist is such a long time. It's wonderful when that happens, don't you think? *whispers* And he writes books, too.

Enjoy his gorgeous video "Her Morning Elegance" and listen to his album "The Opposite of The Sea". An acoustic guitar, string instruments, and a piano make this song haunting, majestic, and transportive all at once.
