Izzy started his musical career at age 5, hand-drumming on the table during Shabbat zmirot. He later served in the IDF rabbinical army band under Mona Rosenblum, and has been involved professionally with music ever since. Izzy Kieffer’s debut CD has many pleasant surprises. Izzy is featuring some of today’s well known artists such as Yosi Piamenta, Sandy Shmuely, Shlomo Haviv, Avner Levy, Jonathan Rimberg & Jeff Braverman, to name a few. In addition to singing on several songs, Izzy has written most of the songs and arranged the album himself. Izzy took Carlebach’s Yehi Shalom and produced an incredible reggae version of that song. He did the same with the traditional "Ode Lo Ahavti Die" and turned it into a blues-rockin' song featuring a full horn section with Piamenta’s guitar playing. Another great one is a track called "Hamalach," a duet with Shauly Waldner (Yitsy Waldner’s brother).
