Zandy - Soul-Carved Music

"Some people go to see a therapist, some scream into a pillow, I write songs and free them into a microphone" Zandy.

"Three's a Crowd" is my digital debut album, comprising seven original songs, all written and composed by me between December 2011 and May 2015, and recorded at Guy Rubinstein's studio in Zichron Ya'akov between September and December 2015. Five of these songs were arranged by me and by the band I recorded with, and the other two, one of which recorded in a live session, were arranged by me and the marvelous producer Guy Rubinstein.

"Three's a Crowd" effectively summarizes my first chapter in the music industry - from the first day after I finished my service in the IDF, had my very first gig and got the opportunity to travel with the SKI-DEAL company and perform across Europe, to the very day I flew to Europe.
As you can see, you can download the full album here on BandCamp.

This album is my first gift to the world, a collection of seven original songs, written with much thought and emotion over the different events and processes I'd gone through, which led me to new insights about myself and my worldview. Seven songs that are taking their very first steps out into the world, and just want someone to listen to them and spread them out into the wind.

Just for the record, "Three's a Crowd" is only the beginning, the first album of many that I plan to release someday. Right now there are so many additional original songs already written and composed, just waiting for their turn to be heard. So stay tuned!
Until then...

Whole lotta love :) <3

released January 6, 2016

The cover - designed, drawn and painted by (the super-gifted) Ori Goldberg - symbolizes my thoughts and feelings during my first gigs, when I realized I needed to focus on "the cat" in the crowd, not on "the drunk" or "the janitor". I learned this lesson from a good friend who pushed me from the get-go to start performing. His name is Giora Marani.

The members of the band you hear playing on the album are my very good friends and gifted musicians: Amitai Kedmi on the guitar, Nitzan Chen on bass guitar, and Noam Levi on drums. Every one of them donated his previous time and talent to create this album. Their signature as musicians is written on every song they played, as they put the flesh on the skeleton of chords and lyrics that these songs used to be.

In track #1, "Man with a Bronze Guitar", Omri Peled and his trumpet catapulted the song into an old Western, giving it an amazing and unique vibe.
Also in track #4, "Sleeping on the Side of the Road", I had the privilege of singing along the super-talented singer with the tender voice, Moriya Lombroso, who painted this ballad-to-a-hitchhiker in very special colors.

All tracks in "Three's a Crowd" were recorded, edited, mixed and produced by Guy Rubinstein. Guy's part in making this album happen was invaluable, from advising and donating from his own experience throughout the creation process, through playing in some of the songs, to the final mixes. Without him, the album would sound entirely different.
Another person who advised me and was my right hand man all throughout the process and helped me with every decision I had made is my older brother, Tom Zandman.

Track Name: Man with a Bronze Guitar
Man with a bronze guitar // Zandy:

Forty days of walking in the desert
The sun is giving meaning to every drop of water
His diamonds shine on in the sky
At the end of times he'll take a boat and sail to the horizon lighting a cigar, a man with a bronze guitar.

A lonely tree in an endless forest
Waiting to be burned by the mighty infernal fire
His Childhood views belong now to the past
He tries to live the day that the green has turned to black, the mountain scar, he is a man with a bronze guitar.

Fighting, birds along with lions
Swimming by the shore trying to get some water
Winds of earth have turned against the eagles
As that war's erupting he's lying on the grass staring at his star, a man with a bronze guitar.

Houses are burning, and he drinks coffee
People are dying, and he is still young
His world is under a wrong command
But he don’t care cause hiss song has sung
The ground is cracking beneath his feet
The air is toxic because of his car
The trees are burning in front of his eyes
But he… he's just a man with a bronze guitar
Yes he... he's just a man with a bronze guitar.

Studying the ageless stones and boulders
Searching for shadows they are pieces of survival
Tiny stones of every shape and color
He doesn’t care of Mountain View though it doesn’t seem so far
Who am I to judge? I am a man with a bronze guitar.
Track Name: Trouble Minded Girl
Trouble Minded Girl // Zandy:

A trouble minded girl who loves to rock and loves to roll till sunshine
she's the spirit of the south we used to kiss and laugh about the people round us
And when she told me I will smile just when you'll stand across the Nile I held her tight
The story of the day I wept my eyes were red my chicks were wet is changing now.

I wait here, I stay near, still I cannot hear you sing.
My love pearl, I need her, my trouble minded girl.
I wait here, I stay near, still I cannot hear you sing.
My love pearl, I need her, my trouble minded girl.

Maybe all I need is inspiration or I miss the satisfaction so leave and never return
For a broken heart can only create a song of a lonely wandering boy
Alone she was alone she is I'm begging her I'm on my knees
"tell me what's wrong babe?"
"I cannot tell you turn away I hope I'll live to see the day beyond".

I wait here, I stay near, still I cannot hear you sing.
My love pearl, I need her, my trouble minded girl.
I wait here, I stay near, still I cannot hear you sing.
My love pearl, I need her, my trouble minded girl.

So I wait here, I stay near, but I cannot cannot hear you sing.
My love pearl, I need her, my trouble minded girl.
I wait here, I stay near, still I cannot hear you sing.
My love pearl, I need her...

She's...
My trouble minded...
My trouble minded...
Girl.
Track Name: Behind Bars
Behind Bars // Zandy:

Well I said hey won't come with me today?
I just thought I might sail away
Just to find where I wish to stay
Everybody's gotta find their way.

But say have you wondered what lives out there?
Don't you wander too much beware
If you want to come then prepare
Make sure you got cloths to wear.

But all I've been dreaming of
Was sailing away from home
Trying to find my freedom
March in the open road
Dreaming of my place.

A name it is what that I wish to find
Cause I'm tired of being blind
Open up your eyes and free your mind
To the peak of life we climb...

But all I've been dreaming of
Was sailing away from home
Trying to find my freedom
March in the open road
Dreaming of my place.

Do you want me to go? cause I want you to know that I can't take it anymore
I still love you so though I want to go and I can't stand it anymore!

But all I've been dreaming of
Was sailing away from home
Trying to find my freedom
March in the open road
Dreaming of my place.
Track Name: Sleeping on the Side of the Road
Sleeping on the Side of the Road // Zandy:

Lift a finger don't you stand and linger I'm a prisoner on the run
Stay with me we'll set our destiny together ride along have some fun.

I'm driving around and escaping the highway control
But since you left my car I've been sleeping on the side of the road.

Mr. Driver try to hold me tighter cause you'll leave me at the station ahead,
silly baby won't you miss me maybe? Will I leave a memory in your head?

Your'e driving around and escaping the highway control
(I'm driving around and escaping the highway control)
But since I left your car you've been sleeping on the side of the road
(But since you left my car I've been sleeping on the side of the road).

I'm a lover riding undercover as salesman from door to door
pretty honey do you need some money? just to get you up from the floor.

Your'e driving around and escaping the highway control
(I'm driving around and escaping the highway control)
But since I left your car you've been sleeping on the side of the road
(But since you left my car I've been sleeping on the side of the road).
I'm driving around and escaping the highway control
But since you left my car I've been sleeping on the side of the road.
Track Name: Eternal Sun
Eternal Sun // Zandy:

I've been searching all the seven seas
For the only place where I can do what I please
Life is an adventure and I need to use it well
There are too many stories I got no time to tell

I need to look at the sky
Lift my head up high
Nothing lasts forever cause we're all sure to die
I need to carry my weight
And accept my faith from the infinity fire
desired by eternal sun!

When I wasted hours even years
I've accomplished all my greatest fears
My precious time will never return
It seems like I've got much to learn

I need to look at the sky
Lift my head up high
Nothing lasts forever cause we're all sure to die
I need to carry my weight
And accept my faith from the infinity fire
Desired by eternal sun!

Fire! water! wind and earth
The foundation of the miracle of birth
The eternal sun is not eternal at all
Someday for sure it will fall

I need to look at the sky
Lift my head up high
Nothing lasts forever cause we're all sure to die
I need to carry my weight
And accept my faith from the infinity fire
Desired by eternal sun!
Track Name: Just a Lonesome Rider (& the Road is My Home)
Just a Lonesome Rider (& the Road is My Home) // Zandy:

Ready to roll feeling alive
Seeing life pass me by still I'm standing aside
Long as I am breathing long as I ride
My oh my I will be satisfied
Not planning on staying nor laying my bones
I'm just a lonesome rider and the road is my home.

I will follow my feet till the day I die
Keep on marching day and night, between the dirt and the sky
I've never felt hungry always been full of lies
And whenever I will feel like I will hang and cry
My skin is my armor and my ass is my throne
For I'm a lonesome rider and the road is my home.

It was a one night stand under the stars
Just a bottle of scotch and a wooden guitar
Mother earth is asking "tell me who you are?"
I'll tell you what you want just put a tip in ma jar
She hands me a mirror says "you're never alone"
Though I'm a lonesome rider and the road is my home.

I'll consume my reality in a circle of stones
Climbing up feeling high forever alone
The wind's by my side and the trees say hello
They remind me my name I had so long long ago
I'll pass to myself the fragrant bouquet of thorns
For I'm a lonesome rider and the road is my home.

I have seen everything now let's see the rest
I'm out of my shell I'm burning the nest
When I see the sun calling ahead in the west
My heart beats like a drummer down deep in my chest
"Would you like a cozy room? Don't you roll like a stone!"
No I'm a lonesome rider and the road is my home.
Track Name: What a Wonderful Day (live session)
What a Wonderful Day // Zandy:

A home beneath the skies
I touch the wind I smell the tide
And all that left behind is gone.
The dawn is breaking on the sea
And every laugh is here for me
And I will never be alone.

What a wonderful morning I'm having
The sun is warm and the birds they all fly
What a wonderful world to live in
What a wonderful day to die.

The sea is hugging with the sun
And she is painting everyone
in colors that won't disappear.
Walking on the sand
Into the open promised land
And I will never shed a tear.

What a wonderful evening I'm having
And the voices they send me a smile
Round the fire they're dancing and singing
What a wonderful day to die.

What a wonderful day it has been
And the wind's gently closing my eyes
And the waves they will whisper a sweet lullaby...
What a wonderful way to die.
