Biography

Tel Aviv, Israel (2009 – present)

The Raw Men Empire is an acclaimed freak folk unit based in Tel Aviv, Israel operating since 2009

The band was formed by drinking buddies Tsvika Frosh (acoustic guitar, flute, lead vocals), Yonatan Miller (classical guitar, vocals) and Nadav Lazar (bass, glockenspiel, percussion, vocals). After a couple of months as a trio, they were joined by a 4th member, Itai Kaufman (drums, percussion, beatbox, charango, vocals).

The band toured extensively, gaining a reputation for their unforgettable and uplifting shows. They have been compared to the likes of Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsom, as well as anti-folk artist Jeffrey Lewis, for whom they opened during the Israeli leg of his 2010 tour. The Raw Men released two EPs: The Rise and Fall of (2009) & Elodie (2010), which got rave reviews:

“A promising Israeli freak-folk band’ cute and inventive’ well worth your attention”
— TimeOut, Gal Uchovsky

“Their new EP lasts for only 15 minutes, but it has more content and freshness than most full-length albums in the Israeli indie music scene… a wonderful work of art”
— Ha’aretz, Ben Shalev
