Yoni Bloch (Hebrew: יוני בלוך; born August 11, 1981) is an Israeli musician, song writer, composer and rock singer.
Bloch grew up in Beer Sheva and at the age of 17 moved with his family to Lehavim. He started taking piano lessons when he was 6 years old, taught himself to play the guitar and the drums, and at 14 started to write songs and to compose music.
His artistic journey started on the website Bama Hadasha (“New Stage”), which allows aspiring artists to publish their work in the fields of prose, poetry, plastic arts, music, etc. The daughter of the chairman of the record company NMC heard Bloch’s songs on the site and introduced the music to her father. In a short while, Bloch’s songs were heard in the radio. Today, he is a very successful musician and his songs receive major airtime in Israel.
His first album Ulay Ze Ani (“Maybe it’s me”) was released in 2004. Most of the songs were published earlier in the website Bama Hadasha. The musical style of the album is melodic rock, and the songs moved from rhythmical songs to calm and quiet ones. The songs were written in a humorous ambiance, which was expressed either in the lyrics and either in the melody. Most of the songs were written by Barak Feldman and composed by Bloch.
Bloch also wrote songs for TV serials, TV realities and for plays and movies.
In June 2007 Bloch released his second album Hergelim Ra'aim (“Bad Habits”). Also in this album there’s his cover to the ballad “Annabel-Lee” written by Edgar Allan Poe, and was translated to Hebrew by Ze'ev Jabotinsky.
On November 19, 2008 Bloch released his third album Al Mi Ani Oved (“Who am I fooling”), and attached to it a movie that is made of music videos to all the songs of the album. In the movie Bloch dies from a broken heart. The album was written after a hard break up of Bloch and his unknown girlfriend, in most of the songs at first there’s a tranquil atmosphere and towards the end it becomes a rock song.
