Soulful and honest, bilingual singer-songwriter STAV. continues her small-town story of migration with soaring melodies and bursts of rhythmic fire. The 2018 Folk Alliance Australia ‘Young Artist of the Year,’ she has a compelling ability to tell a story in song in English and Hebrew.
She was born in Israel, grew up in a small town in Australia and is mostly based in Melbourne city. Blurring the lines between singing and spoken word, STAV. is totally at home on stage, solo and with her band. Since releasing her debut album ‘The Horizon Line’, she has performed at the major folk festivals across Australia including Woodford, Port Fairy, Cygnet, Blue Mountains, The National, The Tablelands as well as in Spain, Portugal, France and Canada including performances at FAI Montreal.
Her latest song, ‘Walk A Little Further’ was featured on Triple J Roots N All and was released with a fun community dance video, home-made in isolation with some of the people she has met on tour around the world. Live performance brings this songwriter’s introspection, playfulness and raw passion to life.
