Or Golan is a 24-year-old Israeli musician and composer. The story begins with one small dream that grows over time.
Or Golan has been stuttering since the age of 3 as well as diagnosed with FMF a form of arthritis that causes pain from prolonged exertion. He has always loved creating things from scratch. As a writer, Or has written four books in Hebrew: “The Girl with the Purple Hair”, “Three Minutes of Fame”, “Twice an Inverted Coffee” and “Bird Lake”. He struggled with love and support. Using that feeling ,he channels into it, and little by little develops to be a successful. From an anonymous artist to an artist with a resume of almost 200 melodies known all over the world… this is his story.
After his military service, from which he also left because he had undergone mental traumas, to this day the need to create something from scratch, from nothing, in space, burns in Or Golan. For a long time he thought about what to do and one fine day the idea came up to create music. Or Golan still did not know how to create music. He does everything from listening to the melodies he had in his mind. Music came to him like magic from God and the problem was how to market himself to the big world. He knew that in Israel they would not accept him and his music, Or Golan is a very spiritual person, he feels things before they happen. So Or Golan learned every day all day how to market himself (something he never knew in life) and as a stutterer, it was impossible, but as fate would have it, God decides that now is his time. Through tribulations he did not give up. The melodies flowed like a river, the dam was breached and luck lit up. In 2021 the first album is released to the world. Or Golan knew that the music he was supposed to create was electronic. Inspired and motivated, Or Golan released three full albums: Superstar Baby, Dance of Love and Dahabha Everything went smoothly without stopping. After that, two more full albums came out and Or Golan’s direction for success was clear as the sun shines every morning. On the business and marketing side, Or Golan arranged an article for himself in the local newspaper and built a community on his old Instagram for people from all over the world who heard his songs. With time my songs grew in people’s hearts.
Two months have passed and Or Golan is releasing singles every day a new song and sometimes two songs a day to take advantage of the momentum he had. So far life has seemed to have all the stars arranged in the right order and Or Golan has released with perfect timing the two singles that will bring him his great success called I Am Greedy and Open Minded. The marketing trick in “I am Greedy” was to put all his energy into this song because Or Golan knew he had a winning card, he had a feeling it was his song that would break his name around the world. Some of the people already knew Or Golan, but now that he has the winning card, he can fly to heaven.
Each song has two rights, one on the melody and the other on the whole song. These rights are worth gold in Golan’s opinion.
Or Golan revealed that now that he has more than a hundred songs on his resume, it is time to join an association that will protect his rights and give him royalties like everyone else. Or signed with the monopoly ACUM in Israel. ACUM is like ASCAP and BMI is just simple in Israel. We are in September and the deal was signed with Or Golan on the upper hand and he decides whether to give his rights and how. Time passes, Or Golan has close to 200 songs, a great success, the old songs are doing well and traveling the world thanks to the song “I am Greedy” and “An Open Mind”. Or Golan knows that timing is everything in life, so it’s a good time to get off the gas and let the waves of success continue until he does everything from scratch. Golan was much more involved during this period in radio broadcasts on music stations around the world.
A total of 70 countries (according to SOUNDROP reports) has sold a little over 205,000 copies of his songs. Awesome achievement for a new comer.
The royalties at ACUM were worth close to $40,000 and he is not letting anything stop him. If you want to sample his music please listen below.
