Singer to Watch: Yoav

If you happened to catch Tori Amos on tour last Fall, you may have been treated to a musician named Yoav. Since taking his guitar on the road with Ms. Amos, he's been building up a nice little fan base for himself, but it wasn't until this week that those fans could buy his album.

Charmed and Strange is the debut album from this singer-songwriter. Apparently, most of the beats and effects in his songs are done using only his acoustic guitar, which is probably pretty cool to see live. Raised in South Africa and Israel, he relocated to New York and recorded this album in Oxford and Montreal. His work reflects these global sounds that have influenced his life.

Most of what I've heard gives me the sense he has a keen ear for radio-friendly pop melodies, and his stuff seems ripe for club remixing. I'm still getting used to his sound, though, so to check out a music video for the single "Club Thing" and let me know what you think,

I saw him during Tori's show in Chicago....he was awesome! It was so cool to see all the different sounds he could make with just his guitar. I'm excited to check out his album.

this definitely seems radio-friendly and mix-worthy, but not something i'd be into listening to at home. i also really hate the i supposed to believe that all those women would actually be all over him in a club? no. i dunno what to make of the video. very odd.
