'Let me live, love and say it well in good sentences'

Be invited into the poignant, poetic and particularly Parisian world of Rosi Golan @rosigolan

Rosi Golan is a folk-pop singer-songwriter from Israel, currently based in New York. I first heard the soothing, soulful sounds of Golan courtesy of a link via Snow Patrol‘s website. Golan dueted with the Irish rock band on Live On Letterman late last year, returning the favour after lead singer Gary Lightbody  provided backing vocals for her latest album track, ‘Everything Is Brilliant.’

Golan’s second album entitled ‘Lead Balloon‘,  was released in September 2011 and several of its tracks have provided the musical backdrop to hit primetime tv shows such as The Vampire Diaries, Ghost Whisperer and Grey’s Anatomy.



‘Lead Balloon’ follows on in much the same vein as Golan’s debut folk-pop album, ‘The Drifter & The Gypsy‘ (2008). Both records feature largely acoustic settings and focus on love stories; short-lived romances, long term commitments and everything in between. Golan’s songwriting is very honest, you really get the impression that you are listening to the inner workings of her heart and mind, yet both bodies of work never feel inconsistent or disjointed.



I find Golan’s vocals exceptionally pleasing to the ear and greatly enjoyed being invited into her poignant, poetic and particularly Parisian world. I hope to hear a lot more from this talented singer-songwriter in 2012.
