The Moshav Band
The Moshav Band
Internationally acclaimed American/Israeli rock group Moshav began when childhood friends Yehuda (vocals, percussion) and Duvid (vocals, guitar) made music together on Moshav Mevo Modiin in Israel. The group was initially discovered by a group of American students traveling in Israel who heard the band play and raised money to bring them to the states for a college tour in the late 1990s. Soon after, Moshav relocated to Los Angeles where they continued to grow their fan base and began recording with some of the industry’s best.

Continuously touring across the United States and the world, including festivals in Australia, Canada and Europe, Moshav built a large following. After releasing and selling close to 50,000 of their self produced albums- the band eventually caught the eye of producer Ron Aniello (Lifehouse, Guster, Barenaked Ladies). Together they recorded the album, Misplaced in 2006. Reviews for the record were highly favorable and the group toured heavily before teaming up again, in 2010, with Ron Aniello and Clif Norrell (R.E.M., Jeff Buckley, Sting) to create their album- Dancing in a Dangerous World.

The band recently released their ‘Shabbat Vol. 1’ influenced by their Sabbath’s with the beloved Reb Shlomo Carlebach. The deluxe version of ‘New Sun Rising’ was also recently released and features their smash single, “World on Fire” featuring Matisyahu. To celebrate the release of the record, Moshav joined Alex Clare on tour and continued to perform throughout the USA and the world. The music video for “World On Fire” has been viewed over a million times.
From a sun kissed studio on the coast of Southern California, Gidon brings us a unique and authentic reggae sound. Fusing elements of rock, jazz, soul and old-school roots- rock-reggae, Gidon creates a sunny, groove-filled sound that is every bit as soulful as the Jamaican legends who inspired him. His high-vibe music reflects the diverse, cross-cultural influences that defined his early years. Being a veritable jack of all trades, Gidon is often juggling multiple roles on his tracks including: writing, producing, performing, engineering and composing. His latest single “High Times” is no different as he plays nearly all the instruments with a reggae aficionado’s aplomb. Adding in tasteful electric guitars and choice arrangements is good friend and song writing partner Cuni Besic.

“High Times” is the first single from the much anticipated EP that is scheduled for release in Spring 2019. This upcoming EP follows up the successful “Rise” EP release from 2016 (Slipway Records, London, U.K.). Where “Rise” has a unique London sound, most of the songs from the upcoming EP have been created and recorded in Jamaica with some of the most legendary artists around including Sly and Robbie, Beres Hammond, and Clive Hunt. These amazing producers and artists have lent their ears, hands and hearts to Gidon’s music to create a perfect hybrid of the highest order.

His first Jamaican single “Call Me” (Liberation House) produced by Robbie Shakespeare and Maestro, got steady radio play on MELLOW FM and the venerable IRIE FM - Jamaica’s number one radio station. The “Rise” EP had play on revered selector David Rodigan's BBC 1 Radio Xtra and Dennis Bovell's "Dub on Air" program on SOHO Radio. Chuck Foster - L.A.’s famous host of KPFK’s “Reggae Central” is a big supporter and spinner of Gidon’s fresh cuts.

Gidon trods the globe with his positive vibe and universal sound perfectly suited for festivals and stage shows of all shapes and sizes. Past noteworthy events include: Ostroda Reggae Festival - playing alongside Stephen Marley, Sly & Robbie and Katchafire in 2011; performing and winning Carbondale, Colorado’s 2012 Mountain Fair Songwriters Competition; Opening the 2013 “Reggae to Reggae” show in Portland, Jamaica alongside Ken Boothe, Judy Mowatt, Duane Stephenson; Veg Fest in L.A. and Orange County, California 2016-2017. Stay tuned as this artist continues to emerge as one of the brightest and original sounding new stars on the international reggae circuit.
