“An intense contemporary jazz rush”
— Music Is My Sanctuary
“Yoni continues affirming his trademark hybrid sound”
— TwistedSoul Magazine
Hailing from Israel, the pianist and producer Yoni Mayraz blurs the lines between oriental sounds and hip-hop infused jazz territory.
In September 2020 Yoni released his debut EP ‘Rough Cuts’ which received many positive reviews by both press and fans - “one of the most captivating compositions I’ve heard in 2020” - Richardine Bartee (Grammy member).
‘The Rat’ released in February 2021, featuring sought-after Israeli trumpeter Itamar Borochov (Yemen Blues), and mixed by Grammy-winning engineer Qmillion, known for his work on Robert Glasper's 'Black Radio', was the first half to be released out of a pair of two singles.
'Snow' - the second half out of the pair, was released in March 2021 via Village Live Records [UK] on the Village Live & Direct single series alongside other leading talents in the scene.
Both of the tracks were supported by major radio stations and magazines around the world, such as Jazz FM, Worldwide FM, NPO radio 2, Balamii radio, Music Is My Sanctuary, The Wicked Sound, Twisted Soul and more.
