“A collection of hugely talented artists, all part of the Emanuel family, coming together for one great night of music”

Lior burst on to the Australian music scene in 2005 with his debut album – ‘Autumn Flow’.

Recorded and released entirely independently, and spearheaded by the much-loved opening track ‘This Old Love’.

Subsequent singles ‘Daniel’ and the title track ‘Autumn Flow’ both secured high rotation airplay via the national broadcaster Triple J, and further cemented this album into the hearts of the Australian public.

The album was released at a time when independently funded and released records were still a rarity, Lior being one of only a handful of artists paving the way for a model that is now deemed commonplace. ‘Autumn Flow’ achieved Platinum status and went on to become one of the most successful independent debuts in Australian music history.

Lior’s sophomore album – ‘Corner of an Endless Road’ – released in 2008, followed on where ‘Autumn Flow’ left, debuting at #2 on the Australian Albums chart and topping the Independent charts for several weeks.

The album gave a greater indication of Lior’s rich cultural background with a number of tracks featuring Middle Eastern influences. Lior picked up another 2 ARIA nominations including ‘Best Independent Release’.

The release was followed by a string of sold-out national tours, including the unique ‘Shadows and Light’ tour – a collaboration with live performance shadow artistry built specifically to Lior’s music. The tour showcased at the Sydney Opera House to wide critical acclaim and went on to perform a season at The Sydney Theatre Company.
