"One of the most original singer-songwriters I have heard recently... I'll be doing what we should all do when we hear or see great art... I'll be shouting her praise from the rooftops" 
- The Night Sky Is A Jewellery Store Window


FAA 'Young Artist of the Year' 2018

Introspective and playful, bilingual singer-songwriter STAV. continues her small-town story of migration with soaring melodies and bursts of rhythmic fire. An expressive voice playing as one instrument with her guitar, she has a compelling ability to tell a story in song. She was born in Israel, grew up in a small town in Australia and is now based in Melbourne city. Blurring the lines between singing and spoken word, STAV. is totally at home on stage, solo and with her band.

Since releasing her debut album 'The Horizon Line' (2016), she has performed in Canada, Spain, France and the major folk festivals across Australia.

Live performance brings this songwriter's introspection, playfulness and raw passion to life.

"STAV. definitely stands out from the crowd" 

- Multicultural Arts Victoria (MAV), 2018

Her debut album 'The Horizon Line' (2016) is a bold and heartfelt coming-of-age concept album about finding permission to speak between worlds.

Her recent single 'Weakening, Awakening' was premiered on Triple J in 2018 and her newest single 'Poison Remedy' was reviewed by HappyMag as "emotionally resonant and captivating". In 2019, the project toured Canada for the month of February, including the Folk Alliance International conference represented by Sounds Australia and performed at Woodford, Cygnet, Port Fairy, The Blue Mountains and The National Folk Festivals.


Album now available on Bandcamp, Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify and all major music platforms
