Yoni Z.

Yoni Z is a singer, songwriter and entertainer, currently residing in his hometown of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, New York. Beginning as a young teen, he has captivated the Jewish music world with his astounding voice.

Having grown up harmonizing in a family of musicians and cantors, Yoni decided he wanted to devote his life to becoming a true artist, and not just rely on his Gd given gift. He proceeded to spend many years polishing the prodigious innate abilities that had so graciously been bestowed upon him. It was a rigorous routine, involving many arduous years of diligent study and practice.

His first “professional” appearance was at the age of 15, performing for a wedding in Toronto, Canada. From that humble start, now at the age of 25, Yoni has skyrocketed to fame, lighting up the stage at thousands of performances, one night at a time, often alongside the most beloved and respected legends. He has indeed become a most sought after headliner, earning the respect of the top promoters in the field.

It is first and foremost Yoni’s extraordinary voice that has earned him such acclaim. The years spent under the tutelage of world renown masters has produced a richness and a range, a uniqueness and clarity that has his audiences relishing each note. Whether performing the works of others or his own incredible compositions, he sings with such power and emotion that his renditions are mesmerizing.

As someone passionately pursuing a lifelong calling, Yoni further strove to cultivate an appreciation for all music, not limiting himself to any genre. He thus embarked upon a program of carefully analyzing and personalizing a huge portfolio of great works that now enables him to perform an incomparable array of songs that include tunes from decades of Jewish pop, the all time classics, Chassidic melodies, Middle Eastern music and even opera. Assisted by his amazing acuity for memory and recall, he soon earned the moniker, the “walking Jewish jukebox.” He truly has the ability to perform almost any song upon request, becoming the acknowledged expert as well as the consummate artist.

Another defining characteristic of Yoni’s artistry is the common thread of genuine joy and love that permeates everything he does. Especially in these times, Yoni and his music provide a much welcomed solace and inspiration. His renditions emit an aura of happiness and gratitude that envelopes the listener as well, enabling them to soar along with him. Anyone who has experienced Yoni Z’s music, wants more.

Yoni has thrilled audiences in forty-six of the fifty states, as well as in Israel, Belgium, France, Italy, Mexico, Ukraine, Russia, the Caribbean, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Switzerland, and is set to release his awaited debut album in 2017.
