Roy Dahan is an Israeli singer-songwriter born and raised in the village of Korazim. From an early age he was influenced by the musical likes of Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, and many classic Israeli singer-songwriters. He began his professional music career at age 30, first performing solo shows in small venues. After garnering a following and as his repertoire of original songs grew, he began to grace some of Israel’s major stages with more elaborate performances accompanied by his band.

 

His first studio album, Some of This Life, was released in 2011 to critical and public praise and was named best album that year by Time Out Tel Aviv. The debut album features his recognizable songs “Does Anyone Know” and “State of Mind.” Galgalatz, one of Israel’s top radio stations, featured both songs in its top songs playlist and “State of Mind” was 88 FM Radio's most played song of 2012.

 

Dahan followed with the release of two more albums: The Man in My Head (2013) and Through The Woods (2016). He has toured and performed in cities across Europe and the United States and, following the release of his second album, was invited to perform at the Liverpool Sound City Music Festival.

 

In 2017, he began taking photography and has since amassed a portfolio of work that includes landscapes, people, animals, and his loyal dog companion of 12 years, Mika. His first photography exhibition was presented in May 2018 in Luxembourg.
