Q. What inspires your new music music?
A: Life and people have always inspired my music. I’ve always felt that my job was to speak for those who have no voice.
I Love making music that inspire people. Sometimes I find myself listening to my own music and hearing somthing that motivates me.
Its like playing a tape of yourself saying “Get Up! You Can Make It”

Q. People want to know how do you stay going over all the years?
A: Usually with this Question people expect something deep but truthfully I never stop being a student of the music.
I will not allow myself to arrive. There is always something new to do to become better.
Even when I hear stories about Michael Jackson and how he was always studying the greats.
He was great because he never stopped being a student.

Q. What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen in the last 3 years?
A: Personally, to see my music placed in tv and films like Meet The Browns, CSI, Sons Of Anarchy, etc. Some of these songs where 8 and 9 years old when they got picked up. Its been one of the sparks that keep me motivated and is crazy to see the online response every time a song makes it into a film or show. As a whole, the Growth and acceptance of Christian hiphop in the Church as well as te mainstream is crazy to see.
The internet has made the music industry a even playing field and its good to see.

Rated Next | Brownies – Desert Island


Over the past year Efrat Darky, Oded Adar and Noam Fredrich, Brownies band members since 2011, created a new album and this is the title track, Desert Island.

With music that does our soul good, and lots of emotional joy. Which is why we’re so happy to share it.

The album and the whole mindset around it are closely related to the world of adventure and imagination, and originally we planned to release along-side with the album an animation movie. Right now we are reworking our adventure into a book which we will share in the future.
Huge infinite love, Brownies.


“The sun begun to shine in the blue skies and the sight in front of my eyes was dazzling. A village of short people living high in the trees in decorated houses, just like the adventure. The druid village I think to myself, amazing how thought magnetize reality.
I look down upon the clear river water under me. What I saw was unbelievable.”

We would love to share the expirience with you.
