She’s based in Los Angeles now, though back in her hometown of Tel Aviv, Israel, Ninet Tayeb is a household name. Give her a listen and you’ll see that it’s no surprise — the singer, songwriter and actress is on her fifth full length album, and the new material is typically raw, heart-wrenching and rocking. She recorded her first two album in Hebrew, before making her English language debut in 2012 with Sympathetic Nervous System. Tayeb remains one of the most famous celebrities in Israel, and her attempts to crack America continue at an impressive rate. The Paper Parachute album was recorded here just over a year ago, and the followup is coming soon. “I want people to feel whatever they want to feel,” she says on her Facebook page. “I wanna be the channel to their deepest thoughts. I wanna make them feel alive.” Job done.
Ninet Tayeb played with BIIANCO and Olivia Grace at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30 at The Echo.
