New releases from Musical producer and guitarist Assaf Ayalon's upcoming solo album.
Ayalon presents us with the new materials without mediation, as he plays almost all instruments by himself creating an intimacy with the listener in order to deliver the messages he wants to convey. In the first two singles from the new album Resurrection & Lullaby, he takes us on a journey deep into his musical roots, with acoustic guitar reefs, lyrics that cut to the bone and his rugged but gentle voice.
