Israeli Singer-Songwriter Asaf Avidan Bares His Soul On Solo Tour

Israeli singer-songwriter Asaf Avidan has been compared to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, and each time he comes to Chicago, he plays to ever-larger crowds. 

His unique voice draws fans in, but it’s his lyrics and emotionally charged performances that keep them coming back. Ask him about his latest release Gold Shadow and the solo tour that brought him through Chicago, and he’ll say it’s about catharsis, not selling records. 

Avidan joins Tony Sarabia in-studio for a stripped-down performance that shows how he bares his soul through music.
