Multi-talented Recording Artist/Music Producer, MAOR is a true Artist. Currently living and creating in New York City. He was born and raised in Israel, Tel Aviv. From an early age Maor had a strong passion for music. He has a unique talent for writing and crafting a song from concept to full production. "I can hear everything" the snare, kick, bass, sound effects, changes in the chord progression, as well as the hook, the mix, the tone and the relationship between all the instruments, and how they work together". Music is vibrational energy, changing the way you feel for good or bad. While growing up he listened to many different styles of music, allowing an openness to explore, thus developing his own style of writing and expression. The creative process begins as an emotion, triggering a melody in my brain. Sometimes I'll start with a basic melody and a few words. Other times I'll hear part of the song, for instance, just the chorus, or a verse, and let it gel for a bit, till the rest of the melody is created. "Writing a song is not something you can easily learn. It's more like falling in love, with an idea, and letting it grow on you. However, that's not enough it has to fit like a glove and when it does it's truly magical".
After attending the conservatory at an early age, MAOR started writing songs and recorded his first song in a professional studio at the age of 13 his mother was not very approve of it so sold his TV in order to pay for the studio time. couple of years later after taking voice and piano lessons he started performing at the local bars in his hometown and creating a buzz. But that was not enough, He always had a calling, to go to New York City. He left Israel with two suitcases and a big dream and started a new life in New York City. He immediately fell in love with all the city has to offer inspiring him to begin performing everywhere he could from open mics, bars, clubs, lounges, weddings, and Central Park. In time he worked his way up to better venues: Joe's Pub, Elbow Room, Knitting Factory, CBGB, Don Hills, The Bubble Lounge and The Bitter End. It was not always easy getting the gigs but Through hard work, with his tight band, MAOR started creating a following and getting the word out there.
