Omer Netzer & Gilad Ephrat – “Mother” single
“Dear mother, I promise I will be back. I promise I’ll see you me again soon, I love you always. Hey, father, I hope I made you proud. I hope you’ll think about us, and I miss you so much. But I’ve been shot in a war for my county and for you. Remember me as a son who will always love you.” – lyrics
‘Mother’ tells a heartfelt tale of a heroic young man who has honorably served his country and family to the best of his abilities. Apparently, he wants his parents to remember him as a son who will always love them.
‘Mother’ is sonically dressed to impress as it is smartly written. The honest tune walks familiar blocks and serves as another statement of intent from an artist set for a big year.
Furthermore, “Mother” contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Plus, the nostalgic tune possesses acoustic instrumentation flavored with Americana and country-blues elements.
Omer Netzer has performed at several festivals in Germany, the United States, Lithuania, Switzerland, Russia, and many others. Not too long ago, he took part in the historical Cerbul De Aur Festival in Brasov, Romania. He was the opening act for Bon Jovi, Albert Lee, Riley Walker, and folk-pop group Milky Chance. Also, he played a three day in a row performance at the prestigious BB King and City Winery stages in NYC.
