Hi, I’m Eldad!
I started SongFlag as a way to improve my singing, songwriting and performance.
Whether you want to learn how to write songs from the beginning, just need to add something new to your existing songs, or you just feel stuck, you have come to the right place.
My name is Eldad and I’m currently living in Jaffa, Israel.
I started playing guitar when I was 14 years old. During high school I played in a few bands and loved it. However, after graduating I abandoned playing for a long time.
In 2005 I graduated from college with a degree in International Relations and worked for a news company for a while. In 2012 I completed a first and second degree in law. I worked for the government as a financial stock market inspector and had a very good job — but something deep inside felt wrong. I felt creatively empty. And so I slowly started getting back to music.
I took singing lessons and started to perform. I loved it. I brought fresh new energy in my life. I gradually realized that being a singer-songwriter excites me more than anything else.
Eventually, I started writing my own songs and faced the various challenges that come along with it. Examples: not knowing whether to write the lyrics or the melody first, being lazy and not writing anything at all or how do I choose the right instrument when writing a song.
These challenges were the big reason why I started this blog.
I really hope you find value in the posts here.
