Yotam Ishay is an Israeli pianist & composer who performs both Jazz and modern music, a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music with a full scholarship. Yotam grew up in Afula, a small town in Israel. His first experience with music was at the age of 9 when he heard his older sisters playing "Heart & Soul" on the piano. Being already passionate about music, and since he couldn't read music yet, he asked them to write the names of the notes played in Hebrew so he could learn the song. Yotam began formal classical piano lessons just before his tenth birthday, while experimenting with composition from the first years, and listening to CDs of the music of Claude Debussy, who became his deepest influence through the years

In the early 1970s, his big band Centipede brought together much of a generation of young British jazz and rock musicians. As well as performing some concerts (limited economically by the size of the band), they recorded one double-album, Septober Energy.

The clamor of the socializing begins as families and seniors begin making their way to relatives, friends, and warm, familiar conversation. As the peacefulness of the day almost subsides completely, an anxious spark within two very small brothers sends them straight away to the church's spinet piano where the friendly noises all around provide them with more than adequate "cover" for their somewhat theatrical re-creations of Mrs. Butler's powerful, gospel-influenced stylings.
