Biography

Geva Alon (Hebrew: גבע אלון) is one of the most versatile and accomplished Israeli singer-songwriters of the last decade. He was born in a small Kibbutz (Then still a socialist commune-like community). He wrote his first song at the age of 14 and took the guitar seriously, practicing countless hours as a kid. As the founder & leader of “the flying baby” – probably the most powerful rock trio Israel has ever produced – he became known as an extraordinary & inventive guitar-player, capable of both hot-fierce fret-work solos and long slow moving jams into the unknown. But Alon is more then that – a gifted songwriter, he wrote all the lyrics & music to the band’s songs. As a singer he possessed a haunting & surprising vocal register - sometimes comparable to early Neil young.

With the band Alon had recorded 3 albums (their debut is still officially unreleased). Their second album, “inner world” (2001) was hailed as “The best non-Hebrew Israeli rock album since (“the Churchills” legendary psych LP from) 1968”. The Band toured extensively all over California for sixteen months & played mostly in & around the bay area. “Pain to give”- their 3rd album was released in 2004 on the “Blue Sun Music” Label to rave reviews. It contained dark memorable moments such as “Doorway To Simplicity” (with a great & gloomy Tom Verlaine’s “Feel”) alongside long excursions as “Bound To Go Crazy”.

In 2006 Geva Alon released his debut solo album “Days Of Hunger”.

    On February 14, 2011 Geva Alon played to an enthusiastic packed house at Adas Israel Synagogue in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He was in top form and delighted both the loyal fan base and those, like myself, who were hearing him for the first time. His CDs were on sale and most left with at least one to remember the evening's program. Using only his unique and beautifully-toned Harptone acoustic, pedal tambourine and Fx rack, he kept the room entranced with his faultless and skillful guitar technique and wide-ranged, clear voice. Many thanks to all sponsors and organizers who pulled off a great evening event and brought in some world-class talent. I predict that Gevan's career will continue to prosper and his creativity will constantly bring new material to light that will delight his supporters. His guitar mastery is equal to or surpassing our Canadian bests like Bruce Cockburn. Thanks Geva for creating an inspiring evening for us with your talents. Eliakim Israel ben Avraham

    being in a Geva Alon gig makes you feel so nice afterwards :) amazing that it's just him, a guitar and sometimes a harmonica for an hour and a half and it's still fascinating :)
