Moshe Peretz is one of the biggest Mediterranean stars in Israel over the past few years. At only 29 he manages to have a successful solo career, conquering hearts and audiences while maintaining his humble personality.
Moshe Peretz didn’t intend to embark on his musical career until he finished his army service in Isreal, but when a military education officer who heard him sing “Shir Lamaalot” at an army Memorial Day service convinced him to pursue a singing career and sent him to an audition for an army singing group “Pikud Tzafon.”
From that point on, Peretz’s career went on the fast track, and his musical career outside the army began with a debut single entitled “Mabit El Hamromim” while he was still doing his army service. His big break came with the second album , “Esh.” The title track became a massive hit in Israel followed by three more hits that turned him into Mediterranean music royalty.
His next two albums became phenomenal commercial successes: the platinum sales of “Elayich” (2008) and the triple-platinum “Mehashamayim” (2010) have brought together over a million (!) content and ringtone downloads in Israel, making Moshe Peretz one of the most downloaded artist ever in the country.
In 2010 Peretz also won an ACUM Award for a breakthrough artist, “…for his special talent as a music composer and writer, that succeeded in building an individual musical path of his own. As a performer he succeeded in touching the hearts of thousands of listeners…”
Peretz has recently released his 5th album, ‘Zikukim’ and currently tours in Israel and Jewish communities around the world.
