David Sheetrit, age 32, is a musician and composer who comes from the world of jazz. For years he lived in New York and attended the New School, the esteemed and considered Parsons University of New York University. For a long time, he was present behind the scenes as a gifted pianist who knew from a very young age that this was the profession he wanted to pursue. Everything changed a few years ago, when he realized that it was his inner truth that led him to stop being afraid and move to the front of the stage. Black & White, recently released, is the first song from his debut album, an emotionally wrapped, complex yet delicate melody accompanied by an electronic sound that combines unique pop with the influences of Soul and jazz. As with the debut single, so with the rest of the EP album expected to be released in the coming months, it will be possible to hear Sheetrit's abilities as a singer-songwriter with an intimate delivery, a distant tone, and even a bit dreamy, alongside the songs he wrote and composed when most of them deal with love and longing.

He started his studies at an early age in Cyprus with teachers like Giorgos Krasides and Andreas Rodosthenous as he was playing with various projects form ages 13 to 20.
