Éyal Hai has been an innovative vocalist, saxophonist, and producer, ever since he was a child. Among the artists he has worked with are jazz giants such as Grammy Award winner Danilo Perez and producer Javier Limon, and he has opened for The New York Philharmonic.
This November he released his debut full length album Flowers on the Moon -- a collection of songs comprised of unfiltered thoughts and emotions that have been shaped with magnificent musical colors. Each track on the album feels familiar and relatable, yet provides a powerful alien experience.
In Éyal's music, listeners will hear a man who grew up in Israel in the 90s before picking up the saxophone and becoming obsessed with The Great American Songbook. His passion for the liberating spirit of jazz is fused with the attitude of 90s grunge that was imprinted on his young heart, as well as the middle eastern sounds that surrounded him growing up, and the grime and aesthetics of Brooklyn, where he has lived for the past seven years. Éyal's voice carries an innocent "I don't care" attitude, yet his songs are produced with fanatic care for every detail, and woven throughout the album is a nostalgic type of romance, a self-destructive loneliness, and a political commentary about his homeland mixed with strong feelings of longing to be in that same place.
