Ninet Tayeb Ninet Tayeb is
Ninet Tayeb is an Israeli musician, actress, and transplant living in LA. The 35-year-old singer-songwriter’s visceral rock’n’roll belongs amid America’s love for guitar-based carnal energy. Think Alison Mosshart with a Middle Eastern twist. Back in Israel, Ninet is one of the country’s biggest stars. She has played there alongside Alanis Morissette, Jesus & Mary Chain, and Cyndi Lauper. At 19, she won the first series of televised talent contest Kochav Nolad, Israel’s own American Idol. Her debut album Barefoot went platinum in less than 24 hours and gleaned five Number 1 hit singles. But she hadn’t yet found her true voice. Ninet cites influences in Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Joy Division, and Jeff Buckley. She taught herself guitar and began to pen authentic, exposed rock anthems.
