If you are trusting me with your baby, I'll genuinely care about your song. You are not "just another session gig" for me. I will make sure you are absolutely happy with it. For my own sake as much as yours. Whilst you may not be getting 30 years of session-experience with me, you ARE getting 30 years of music passion and you are my #1 priority.

I have been playing and writing music my entire life. I started playing piano at the age of 6 and guitar at 11. I am singer-songwriter whose passion for playing guitar has been itching at me for a while to play on many other records and i have been fortunate over the last few years to be able to do session work both as a vocalist and as a

    I am a singer/songwriter, new on the local music scene. So, for my first recording project, I wanted the best, because I knew just how important it is to set the tone right, from the very beginning. My producer and studio technician said they knew who the man for the job was. Israel came in to play electric guitar, and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Talented, professional and fun to work with. He helped us find that perfect sound we were looking for while giving the track that magic touch we needed. Highly recommend to anyone who wants only the best for their musical journey.

    It was an absolute pleasure and very easy working with Israel Portnoy on our Loving World album. He performed vocals on three tracks and some backing in others. He was very professional, sang with passion and sweetness. Humble in approach, he readily changed vocal style and pronunciation on request without flinching. Happily recommending him for both vocals and instrumentals on your album or for your music event.

    I have used Israel Portnoy's services for a number of my client projects. I am also a guitarist, but whenever I really need soul put into the guitar part Israel is my go to guy. He truly cares that you get the best results for your song.

    I have worked with Israel on numerous occasions and found him to be extremely talented, professional and very easy to work with. His sensitivity, dedication and devotion is second to none and his mild mannerism makes working with him a very pleasant experience. I can highly recommend working with him.

    Truly passionate and professional in his approach to music. I've been fortunate to work with Israel on a number of occasions in the studio and his talent and enthusiasm never fail to impress. A really good bloke in every way.

    I have worked with Israel on numerous productions during the past 3 years. I cannot overstate my gratitude and satisfaction for having had this privilege. Israel brings superb and unique talent to all that he does. His voice is a jewel; his guitar work a thing of beauty. However, though Israel's talent and professionalism are without question, what especially distinguishes Israel is his total devotion, without ego, to enhancing the particular goals of the project for which he is working. Working with him is pure pleasure and the results are consistently greater than those originally sought

You will not find a more sensitive caring or talented musician to work with anywhere.Simply put he is one of the best people and musicians you will ever have the privilege to work with. Regardless of your musical needs Israel is THE MAN. Thomas Schiffour
