London-based, Award-Winning singer-songwriter Tally Koren, releases the official lyric video to her new single Two Kisses (Deluxe Edition). The unique sound of the song gives a flavour of Tally Koren’s Middle Eastern roots, fused with Western electronics.
The emotional words were written by Joel Rockman, inspired by his last visit to his mother in the hospital when she kissed him goodbye. Rockman (75), a distant cousin of Israeli President Issac Herzog, was the first Corona Virus victim admitted to St Mary’s Hospital, London and was put in an induced coma there. After a few weeks, the doctors were about to give up hope, but miraculously he survived.
Tally Koren composed the music and played it on the piano at a party. A guest at that gathering fell instantly in love with her, and after meeting just three times… they married! Sadly her husband has since passed away but before he did he asked Tally to play the song at his funeral.
Koren (‘Shine’ in Hebrew) is very passionate about using her music to bridge the gap between different cultures. She was launching the new single in Coventry, the City of Peace and Reconciliation, with a special event with diverse communities, lighting the first candle of Hannukah, in the presence of the Mayor.
The video was produced by Tally Koren and was filmed partly as a “selfie” by her throughout the pandemic. The single was produced by Tally and Phil Curran (Tears For Fears).
Koren’s track record as an independent artist includes, Fringe Award Winner for Best Singer-Songwriter 2011, playlisting for BBC Radio 2, and shows such as Graham Norton, Chris Evans and Steve Wright. TV appearances on Virgin Media playlist, London Live, and recent performances at the Royal Albert Hall, The National Arboretum, singing at a football match, and The House of Lords.
