Ishay Ribo was born and raised in France. At the age of 13 he began writing songs, composing and recording them in his home. He learned to play the guitar at 18.
In 2014, he launched his debut album, "Tocho Ratzuf Ahava", which was certified Gold for selling more than 25,000 copies in Israel. At the same time, the song "Kol Dodi" reached the number one spot for Israeli religious radio stations.
Ishay Ribo has collaborated on singles and performances with prominent Israeli artists, including Shlomo Artzi, Idan Raichel, and David D'or, as well as famous Jewish musicians Avraham Fried, Yaakov Shwekey, Mordechai Ben David, Yonatan Razel, among others.
Ishay Ribo participated in the three "Tzama" project albums, which showcase Chabad melodies. In 2016, he released his second album, "Pachad Gvahim", which also achieved Gold album certification. At the same time, Ishay also worked on collaborations with composer Yossi Green, as well as a new single with Moti Steinmetz.
He managed to break down sectarian walls on his way to the top, in his own way, by mixing a unique combination of spiritual influences, catchy and inspirational Western melodies, and his one-of-a-kind, soft voice. This has made Ribo one of the most prominent and beloved young artists in the Israeli music scene, with millions of YouTube views and his third album has become one of the most intriguing on the charts.
