Biography

David Broza (born September 5, 1955) is an Israeli singer/songwriter. He has written several Israeli pop standards, including Yihiyeh Tov (It will be all right) and Mitachat La’Shamayim (Under the Skies). David Broza is a modern troubadour of urban folk-rock. With 17 albums to his name, many of which went gold, platinum, and multi-platinum in his native country, Israel.

His grandfather was a founder of an Arab-Israeli settlement Neve Shalom and of the Habonim youth movement. The son of an Israeli/British businessman and a folk singer, David Broza was born in Haifa, Israel. He was raised and educated in England and Spain. Broza originally planned to become a graphic artist, and by age 17, was selling his paintings in the Rastro, Madrid’s famous Sunday flea market. However, after high school graduation, he was drafted into a three-year term in the Israeli military. Stationed away from family and friends, he began playing guitar in cafes to earn extra money, and was eventually offered a record deal. Since he still hoped to attend the Rhode Island School of Design, he declined. He later recorded a tape to promote his live shows. “Somehow, one of the songs became a #1 hit in Israel”, he explains. At age 21, he was a star, and by age 27 he was being mobbed by fans in the street as his recordings went triple platinum.

Critics have labelled him as “a post-modern Leonard Cohen,” the “Stevie Ray Vaughn” of folk rock, and even “the Mel Gibson of Rock n’ roll.”
