Oren LaVie

The Opposite Side of the Sea


Oren is Israeli born singer-songwriter, compared by some to Nick Drake. The Opposite Side of the Sea is pleasant CD. The reviews I have read have been very positive. His vocals are distinct- throaty, almost breathless. I can't say it was one of my favorite CD's to listen to..a bit too laid back. However, I think Oren will have a strong fan base the production values are high and he is a certainly a talented musician. Songs of note include Her Morning Elegance and Ruby Rises. I read one review that indicated the CD had a "broadway feel" to it, and I agree completely. I prefer my sounds a bit more "off-broadway", but for each their own! – John Rumery
