    Biography

    Asaf Avidan (Hebrew: אסף אבידן‎) (born in Jerusalem on March 23, 1980) is an Israeli singer-songwriter and musician. He is also the creative force and front-man of Asaf Avidan & the Mojos, an Israeli folk rock band that he established in 2006 in Jerusalem. The band released three albums, The Reckoning in 2008, Poor Boy / Lucky Man in 2009 and Through the Gale in 2010.

    Avidan started writing in the wake of a painful breakup, eventually producing his first EP, "Now That You're Leaving", released in June 2006. It was produced independently and has sold out its initial print of 1,000, and has recently been signed to a U.S. publishing deal.

    Avidan began playing solo in bars, accompanying himself with his guitar and harmonica, and slowly gathered a loyal following.

    In January 2007 he assembled The Mojos, and took his music on another, rockier, path. Nowdays The Mojos are performing to sellout crowds and a major hype has arisen in the Israeli media.

    Avidan's 2nd release, a full LP titled "The Reckoning", recorded with The Mojos, was released in late May 2007.

    In June 2008, his album, "The Reckoning", went to the No.#01 Sales Charts in Israel on it's 2nd week of release; It has sold more then 2.5 times then the album in 2nd position,
    securing him a Gold Certified Album.
