Israel Portnoy is an artist, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and Cantor/sacred-singer hailing from Hale, Cheshire, UK, and currently residing in the land of his namesake, Israel.

His first solo project, a concept album named “Facing Flames feat. Guilda” was released May 23, 2021.

The date commemorates the one year anniversary of a forest fire that destroyed everything he owned and burned through Mevo Modiin, a village in central Israel where Portnoy lived at the time. His entire musical instrument collection and countless books of lyrics, journals and poetry, and recorded music were obliterated within a mere few hours (and without prior warning).

The only thing he was left with was “Guilda” – his vintage ‘63 12-string guitar, which he had taken with him as he left his house earlier that day. Having lost so much, “Guilda” eventually served as his well-needed spark of inspiration to reconnect him to the world and inspired him to write once again.
