Yael has performed on the same stage with Sir George Martin, Suzanne Vega, Chris Kornell, Livingston Taylor, Tom Chapin (3-time Grammy winner), Bobby McFerrin, and Matisyahu. Three of her songs have been featured on the internationally acclaimed The L Word TV series on Showtime. Yael had been performing with her father since she was three years old, singing country songs and Irish folk songs. At the age of 16, she won first prize in a national contest for the best young singer-songwriter in Israel. Since then she had been chosen to perform as a vocal soloist with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra at a tribute concert to the Beatles, directed and conducted by Sir George Martin (arranger and producer for the Beatles). Iconic Israeli artist Shlomo Artzi – one of Israel’s leading singer-songwriters – heard her and brought her on tour with him for two years, and she also performed a hit duet from his famous album Ahavtihem. After releasing her second solo album Joy & Sadness, Yael was invited by Mashina (Israel’s most highly considered rock band), as a guest star, for a two year tour and has performed with them all over Israel and the U.S.
