Music career

Shachar released his first album ‘About Time’ while living in New York City’s Lower East Side. With nostalgic yet intelligently self-aware songs, ‘Time Out New York’ said of About Time: “The record is tight and well made with melodic mainstream rock and pop” He played shows in the most respected clubs in New York, Boston, and Tel Aviv, Warsaw, Berlin and more, composing music for TV, producing indie artists and writing songs about how time has a tendency to warp in a city of ten million.

He spent the last couple of years writing songs for other artists, and working on music tools for Apple Inc and Waves Audio – during which time Waves was awarded a Grammy for its contribution to the music industry.
