Aviv Geffen background
Aviv Geffen has been performing since he was a young boy, beginning as an actor and singer. He released his first album, Ze Rak Or Hayareach ("It's Only the Moonlight") in 1992, writing and composing every track himself.
In 1995, Geffen performed one of his songs, "Cry for You" (Livkot Lekha), at a peace rally - the same night Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated. Since then "Cry for You" has come to symbolize the peace movement in Israel, and Geffen began to write about political and social change. In 1996 Geffen recorded "Let's Walk for the Dream" (Shir Tikva), which is considered the Israeli version of "Imagine".
That's fitting for a musician who claims John Lennon as a major influence. Geffen's musical style is also influenced by Pink Floyd, U2, Radiohead, Nirvana and Bob Dylan. Geffen's style is also showcased by his keen ear for melody and exceptional affinity for writing in a language that resonates with youth. Geffen has also performed in concert with Iranian musician Shahin Najafi, which was a significant gesture of unity between two cultures.
In concert, Geffen exudes a glam-rock charisma, playing to large crowds and relaying forthright messages of peace. He earned even more fame and attention in his home country by working as a mentor on the Israeli version of The Voice for a short period of time.
Blackfield is a collaborative music project between Aviv Geffen and Steven Wilson, an English progressive rock musician and founder of Porcupine Tree. Wilson has said the focus of Blackfield is on the art of the three-minute pop song. Together, Geffen and Wilson have produced five Blackfield albums, with Geffen taking the lead for several of them.
Steven Wilson returned to a fully collaborative role with Blackfield V, the most recent album for the duo. Blackfield V has been critically acclaimed as one of the best albums the duo has produced, with reviewers singling out Geffen's maturity as a composer and the enduring melodies and instrumental sophistication of Blackfield.
