Erez Lev Ari (Hebrew: ארז לב ארי‎) is an Israeli singer-songwriter. His music, which often incorporates Jewish teachings and themes, is widely acclaimed in Israel.

Music career

In 1996 Lev Ari joined the musical group When Nico Starts Talking (כשניקו תתחיל לדבר) just before they disbanded. He went on to contribute to two albums by the band's lead singer Patrick Sabag (פטריק סבג), and played guitar on the solo albums of the band's keyboardist Eyal Kaufman (אייל_קופמן). He has collaborated with numerous other artists such as Etti Ankri, Meir Banai and Manny Beger (מני בגר).

In 2006 and 2007 he released several singles which were widely played on the radio and on December 4 of 2007 his first album, The Joy in Small Details (שמחת הפרטים הקטנים) was released on the Israeli record label NMC. Lev Ari produced and arranged the songs for the album, with Patrick Sabag participating in the arrangements.

In 2008 he composed, wrote and sang Ana Efnè (אנה אפנה), the opening song for the Israeli drama Srugim. This exposure boosted his popularity in Israel. The single was added to his album The Joy of Small Details and the album was re-issued. In March 2011 the album reached Gold Album status.

His second album Crimson (ארגמן) was released in 2010 preceded by the two singles Good Morning (בוקר טוב) and At the End of the Day (בסוף היום).

In 2012 he collaborated with Yoni Ganot (יוני גנוט) on the album Letter to Letter (אות לאות).

In 2013 he released a joint album with Patrick Sabag called The Lonely Tree (העץ הבודד).

In March of 2016 Lev Ari released his fourth album (third solo album) The Stains of Culture (כתמים של תרבות).
