Music Video of the Day – Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie

…. This is one of the most creative music videos I’ve seen recently. It’s from Oren Lavie who was born 1976 in Tel Aviv, and is a singer, songwriter, playwright and theatre director. In 2001 Oren Lavie moved to New York where he tried to make a living by means of various jobs and where he focused on writing songs. When they had piled up he went to Berlin in 2003 and started to do recordings, working as his own producer. His first album, “The Opposite Side of the Sea”, was completed in 2006; it was released in Europe January and February 2007. Nice work! Directed by: Oren Lavie, Yuval & Merav Nathan Photography: Eyal Landesman Featuring: Shir Shomron
