Shany Kedar


Shany Kedar's name (pronounced: Shah-knee Keh-dahr) was a hot secret passed through word of mouth in the Israeli indie scene in the last few years. Although designing numerous memorable album covers for successful indie artists in the English-singing mini-scene here, Kedar's voice was not heard. After friend and local indie-mogul Omri Levy encouraged her to compose old and new lyrics, she teamed up with him on the 24-hours poject "Unlit Cigarettes" Read more on Last.fm
Shany Kedar's name (pronounced: Shah-knee Keh-dahr) was a hot secret passed through word of mouth in the Israeli indie scene in the last few years. Although designing numerous memorable album covers for successful indie artists in the English-singing mini-scene here, Kedar's voice was not heard. After friend and local indie-mogul Omri Levy encouraged her to compose old and new lyrics, she teamed up with him on the 24-hours poject "Unlit Cigarettes", and taking part in a Hebrew tribute project for Leonard Cohen (where her haunting cover of "Who by fire" was most memorable) and began refining songs for her debut album, Bloodlines. With Israeli multi-talented electro-acoustic artist Morphlexis as the producer, Kedar took into the studio her Low, Cat Power and Polly Jean Harvey influences, her artfully crafted lyrics, and three talented musicians. Bloodlines reminds us of Hope Sandoval, early-90's 4AD sound aesthetics, PJ and some Lisa Germano. "In may 2006", Shany writes in her website, "my beloved grandmother passed away.

She was truly one of my earliest and biggest inspirations, and these songs that ended up on Bloodlines, as I later realized, seemed to be pieces of some sort of heritage: feminine heritage, survival heritage, and ultimately, an intense connection I share with the women in my family. A connection seeming to precede me or my grandmother - and perhaps this album was just my weird way of finding that out. Read more on Last.fm.
