Ori Alboher , is a multi-instrumentalist creator that has been making music from his home studio under the name ORI since 2012.
Inspired by R&B, Pop, Ambient and Soul, ORI shares his music with a soft voice, manipulated vocals, loops and beats - building up melodic, rhythmic and repetitive structures that pulls the listener into the music while forming moods oscillating between intimacy and distant depths.
ORI floods the listener with strong currents and powerful spells. ORI’s style could best be described as ‘Heartcore’.
His debut solo album ‘Unwind’ was released in 2012, following the break-up of his former band ‘Folo’, and was circulating as a well kept secret in the Jerusalem underground music scene, building a loyal crowd of followers for ORI locally and receiving great reviews. ‘Unwind’ was rereleased in 2016 world-wide reaching many more ears and hearts - enlarging ORI’s constantly growing fan base.
In late 2017 Ori released his 2nd album ‘1986’ and is touring all over since.
'1986' mixes organic & electronic soundscapes and features the widely played single ‘Black Book’ which appeared on season 1, episode 10 of the American TV show ‘Shooter’
(Paramount). The 2nd single ‘On The Floor’ was picked as a sync for the critically acclaimed film ‘Dead Women Walking’ (2018, Directed by Hagar Ben-Asher & produced by 'Blackpills’).
The song 'Solo' was sampled by Jay Rock on his new album “REDEMPTION” - released on June 15th 2018. The samples on the song were curated by Kendrick Lamar himself and the song was produced by Sounwave.
The song is titled 'For what it’s worth' sampling the lyrics of ORI “Is it worth it, maybe when you go home, I don’t wanna be here, try not to think about it.”
All the songs on ‘1986’ were created & produced by ORI himself.
