With a critically acclaimed album under his belt, singer-songwriter Roy Dahan has a lot to be proud of. Providing his own unique brand of folk rock, this native Israeli who performs in English is celebrating one year since the release of his album, "Some of this Life," with a show at the Barby Club in Tel Aviv Tuesday night.

The album received critical acclaim and public praise, with two singles "Does Anyone Know" and "State of Mind" earning a place on the playlist of Galgalatz, one of the country's most popular radio stations. Chosen by Time Out Tel Aviv as the best album of 2011, "Some of This Life" has proven to be a significant milestone in the developing folk music scene in Israel.

Dahan spoke to The Jerusalem Post about the album, what people can expect from his performance and who has influenced him along the way.

The album was a big personal achievement because he set out to bring something extraordinary to his life, and the lives of those who listen to his music. "It's the milestone's of my life and the lives of many. It's everyone's life and everyone's journey," he explained. "That's why I believe so many people can relate to my music."

The album evokes past memories and experiences of people and places, the singer-songwriter said, which is what he hopes will make his music timeless.

Although born and raised in the Upper Galilee village of Korazim, Dahan chooses to sing in English because it gives him the opportunity to connect with more people and reach out to an international audience.

He said that everyone will be able to connect with his music and take something away from the upcoming show. "The songs have no identity, they don't belong to a time and place. Depending on where you are in your life, different people will feel different things," he explained.

Dahan grew up on musical influences such as Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen alongside classic Israeli singer-songwriters.

Doors open at 10 p.m. at The Barby Club, Tel Aviv. For more information see
