Alongside his career as an artist, Lior has also enjoyed a broad range of success as a songwriter. In 2012, Lior won an APRA award for “Best Song Composed for the Screen” for his song ‘Hey Hootabelle’ which he composed for the ABC Kids show “Giggle and Hoot.” This followed on from his hugely popular song “Hoot’s Lullaby” which closes the show nightly. In April 2015, Lior was invited to be the sole Australian performer at the prestigious 100 year anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli, performing his song ‘Safety of Distance’. The song also features an original choral introduction composed by Lior and Nigel Westlake and performed by the Gallipoli Choir.
Most artists set out with an ambition to build a career based on musical credibility and integrity whilst maintaining an independence and individuality in their craft. Lior is certainly part of that rare breed that has achieved this whilst garnering a great degree of success and critical acclaim. From October to December 2018, Lior will embark on a nationwide Australian tour performing a wide selection of material, old and new, in celebration of his new album “Between You and Me”.
