Where are you based?
Hello everyone from faraway Israel, you must have heard of this country in the world, we are a bit crazy politically and militarily, but I am Or Golan, an international musician, if you haven’t heard of me yet, it’s time to read a little and maybe learn a thing or two
What inspired you to start a career in music?
The truth is, I was bored, May 2020 and I had an inner feeling that I should make music, I am that kind of person, people will say I’m crazy because I’m a spiritual person but that’s me. I had a plan that I think is excellent for a beginning musician. I made four albums and released them one after the other in all the music stores so that something would move, then I made close to a hundred singles, I became hugely famous thanks to two of them, so here we are.
Is OR GOLAN your real name?
Yes, absolutely, I was born with it and I will die with it, there is something in this name, something stellar, even though most broadcasters and radio program editors do not pronounce it correctly
How would you describe your sound?
There are people who will say that I’m a different artist, and that’s true, I’ll never be like everyone else, the first sound on the first album I made that felt right to me was electronic and I developed from there, I added a lot of other things. I need someone to check why I started with electronic and not with my favorite pop music especially.
Tell us about your creative process, do you write everything yourself?
All my songs are from God up there, he gives me the melodies in their entirety so that they will be adapted to me. I don’t think there are other artists like me, I never studied musical notation or such theories, it’s boring to me. I once heard an old comedian in Israel say that God protects the artists in this world, I would disagree with that because I was not left with any money because everything was taken from me
Tell us about the success of your single ‘I am Greedy’?
I am Greedy is a phenomenal success, one of a kind in this world, this song the way I heard it for the first time I said it would be successful and it really happened. It is the song that sold the most copies (in total I sold 350,000 copies), I performed with it in Times Square, it was played over 10,000 times on radio stations around the world, I was interviewed all over the world and his wife on the radio and in magazines, I appeared 5 times on TV in Brazil thanks to him. But they also took all the money I earned thanks to.
You have a stutter and suffer from FMF disease, does this affect you making music?
In this life yes, for example in Israel they don’t want to hear about me because I was more successful in the world than any other artist from Israel, so I had to run away to be successful in the world, I have no idea why
Tell us about your experience serving in the army, and did it influence your music in anyway?
One of the horrible times I went through, I was abused mentally and physically, in the end I was declared by the IDF to be schizophrenic and have mental problems. This is the mark of Cain that I carry. Another bad thing that I have
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What are your long term musical ambitions?
I have an answer in mind but I won’t say it so as not to cause you any grief
Where can we find you online?
Search for me on Google with my songs, listen to the songs on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Deezer, Tidal, Amazon, Pandora, Boomplay and more 🙂
