Israel's Answer To Amy Winehouse, Leat Haber, new vintage style release "Wait for Me"



Leat Haber is a born romantic and optimist and has been described in Israel as their answer to Amy Winehouse. Be prepared to be transported back a few decades with this Israeli born singer. Leat is a typical Israeli woman, very strong and independent, and this comes across in her music.

Growing up listening to The Temptations, Jackson 5, Elvis and Cat Stevens, she is influenced by Dolly Parton, Jersey Boys, Johnny Cash, Tracy Chapman and even modern day great Amy Winehouse and Craig David. Leat has a broad knowledge of music and the music she creates. She uses equipment from the 50's and 60's, even the drum kit was vintage. After the recording process she takes her music to a studio and uses a machine that makes the songs sound like they were recorded in an analogue way. Leat takes a vintage approach on not only the style of her music but the way she creates it too. Her EP 'Flying on a Kite' was produced by Noam Akrabi. who helped Leat's dreams come to life, they both connect and understand each other's style.




The lead single off of the EP is 'Wait For Me' which can be viewed here:
