Well its been a while... a year in fact since Lior finished the 'Autumn Flow' 10yr anniversary national tour! 2016 has been a very interesting year for Lior, which amongst other things, included the US premiere of 'Compassion' as well as the writing of a new album.

'A Piece of Quiet' – HUSH Foundation
Throughout this year, Lior has been working on a collaborative project for the HUSH Foundation. The aim of Hush is to work at creating environments of calm and uplifted spirits for kids, families and staff in children's cancer wards at hospitals across the country. One of the things HUSH do is work with artists to produce music, both to create better environments as well as donate all proceeds of the albums they make to these wards.
Together with vocal quartet 'The Idea of North' and composer Elena Kats-Chernin, Lior posed big (and not so big) life questions to the sick kids in the wards - "If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?", "What do you think of stars?", "What would be your fantasy day?", etc. As you would expect, the kids' responses were full of wisdom and humour and formed the basis of the lyrics that Lior then set upon writing songs to! The result is an album all involved are immensely proud of - 'A Piece of Quiet'. You can listen, download or purchase the album today via https://abcmusic.lnk.to/HUSH16
The album will be launched at shows in Sydney and Melbourne :
Sydney – Tuesday Nov 15 – City Recital Hall
Melbourne – Thurs Nov 24 – Melbourne Recital Centre
