My name is Uri Kabiri and entertainment is my purpose. I am a musician, songwriter, music composer, lyricist, vocal producer, music producer, singer & voice-over artist.
I am also a TV & Film actor, dub artist and voice expert.
I was born and raised in Israel and word spread fast about “the kid wonder” who opened his very own commercial recording studio at the eager age of 12!
As one client told the next, my studio & experience continued to grow. As my studio gained popularity, I had the privilege of working with the best artists,
musicians, songwriters, singers, actors and celebrities in Israel.
Soon, I had the opportunity to act and at age 15, had a major role in the Israeli cult comedy “Alex Hole Ahave” (In Hebrew – “Lovesick Alex”), which became one of the most popular Israeli comedies of all time!
At 18, I joined the Israeli Air Force and further pursued my passion for entertainment & music.
That was when I joined the Israeli Air Force entertainment group, where I contributed my gifts as a singer, actor and music composer.
Upon completing my Air Force service it was back to my career in the entertainment industry, where my experience and reputation continued to grow, until it was time to take the next step: Music City USA – Nashville, Tennessee!
I instantly fell in love with the soul of this city and that was it – I opened my recording studio, pushing the envelope further in the heart of the American music industry!
I have been very fortunate in my career with vast experience, producing numerous albums, singles, projects, music for musicals, music for Film & TV (“Sex And The City”, “The Sopranos”, “Malcolm In The Middle” & “Kickin’ It Old School (Dawg)”, to name a few) and guiding various types of artists in many popular music genres.
In my personal life, I am committed to well-being, mindfulness and a healthy lifestyle that has turned into becoming a holistic life coach as a way to give back to my community.
Uri Kabiri is a successful songwriter, music composer, music producer, sound engineer & recording studio owner, where he also contributes as a dub artist & voice-over artist, singing coach, voice-over coach and songwriting coach.
IN THE BEGINNING
Born and raised in Israel, Uri began to sing before he could even speak. Growing up with his divorced mother in the city of Rehovot, Israel, she recognized his affinity for music early on and sent him to a specialized program for learning where he was taught to develop rhythm as a toddler at the age of 3! First, Uri learned to play the organ, drums, flute and trumpet, from there he learned orchestral cymbals at Rehovot’s youth band.
By the age of 8, Uri studied music theory, music harmony, singing and solfeggio.
At 12, his mother sent him to Tel Aviv University, to the prestigious “Institute For The Development Of Highly Intelligent Teens For Creativity And Excellence”, founded by the late Dr. Erica Landau. It was there that Uri was discovered to be a child prodigy and a genius. From there he proceeded to take classes at the University.
At the age of 9, Uri’s mother sent him to a music school, where he learned how to play the drums and his mother fell in love, with his drum instructor at the school.
The two soon got married and opened the best drum school in Israel, named “Metronome”. That school produced many of the top drummers in the country.
Some of whom later left Israel to become prominent drummers abroad, especially in America. The most famous of them all is Nir Zidkyahu who’s played drums for Genesis, John Mayer and other artists like Joss Stone and Jason Mraz.
Inside Metronome was a small recording studio that Uri started managing and operating. He was only 12. That studio is where he began to learn the art of sound recording.
Uri recorded the school’s students as well as his own music. But everything changed the day an actual grown-up client came through the doors asking Uri to record a music track for him. Very pleased with Uri’s work, the man told a friend about the talented kid and that friend told another. Word spread fast about the child protégé who was officially now “in” the music business where he still gratefully works today.
The Early Days
Acting & Singing
At 15, Uri appeared in his first movie, the Israeli cult classic “Alex Hole Ahava” (Lovesick Alex). This also led him to doing voice-over work when he was 18, during his three years of service in the Israeli Air Force entertainment group. During his service he continued to participate in film & TV as well as record and create in his studio.
In 1992 Uri musically produced the Israeli vocals for the Israeli version of American hit TV series “Tiny Toon Adventures,” and American Feature Film “Tiny Toons – The Movie”.
Here he got to remotely work with legendary producer Steven Spielberg, who approved Uri’s musical work. Uri also went on to dub and sing in the Movies-Made-For-Television:
“Tiny Toons – The Movie” (1992) and “(King) Babar – The Movie” (1993),
Today & Beyond
Today, Uri’s works have been featured in American TV and Hollywood Films, airing in the US (HBO, TBS, CINEMAX, MTV, VOD) and in 44 countries around the globe.
For over three decades Uri has been involved in all aspects of the entertainment business where he passionately continues along his childhood path successfully as a musical director, musical producer, vocal producer, singer and composer for film & TV.

Creating music is extremely fulfilling but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s marketable. Friends and family may give you positive feedback but having the right ear with a well-rounded knowledge of the industry can help you take your music to the next level. Uri Kabiri Productions works in collaboration with artists, leading them through the evolution of their music, taking it from a melody in the artist’s mind to the mainstream.
Send your tracks first, and only after I listen to your tracks and confirm I have valuable feedback about these tracks will you be asked to pay.
The reason for this is that some people send well executed tracks that do not require my feedback, therefore it is not worth paying for.
I work with you to help develop your works.
Send me your music tracks for a written/live evaluation (phone, Facebook, Skype, WhatsApp) to help you along the way, including:
* Commercial appeal
* Music production
* Music arrangement
* Strengths and weaknesses
The way a song/track sounds, is produced and musically arranged can make the difference between touching the masses and being a total flop. The tempo, the beat, the sound, the harmonies, instruments, vocals, backing vocals and their mix ALL MAKE THE DIFFERENCE between a song being taken seriously or falling by the wayside.
Send me the tracks you want produced! Simply send a detailed message, describing your vision and the goal that you have for them. Whether your goal is to stay to your roots or to pitch to the mainstream, send the tracks you want produced and I will take them to the next level.
Music For Film & T.V.
The Film & TV markets are in constant demand for new tracks and give artists another outlet to create and make a living.
Many artists make a successful living creating music for these industries.
Send me the tracks you want pitched to Film and TV outlets and I’ll produce them for that purpose.
Today’s demos must be mixed sweet and irresistible. It all starts with a great song, but the production-value has never been more important, even if we’re talking about a minimalistic recording of a single instrument and vocal. I highly recommend having a professional producer record your demo and I would like to be the one you work with.
Working out of Nashville TN, I have access to the best musicians and singers who play and sing all music genres, delivering winning performances for every song.
Send me the tracks you want demoed with a detailed message describing your vision for it and I will produce it.
I have vast experience in recording songs for special occasions, like birthdays, weddings, parties Etc. Whatever your need, we work with you to create and produce the song you desire.

Vocal coaching is a must for every artist, amateur or professional. Learning how to develop, use and protect your voice is crucial for your success and career.
I have devoted decades to the study of voice training and have taught numerous artists how to develop and transform their voices into what they are meant to be,while realizing and revealing their vocal's secrets, so that they can deliver jaw dropping performances.
Every voice is unique and has blocks and challenges. I train artists to know and recognize their vocal strengths and weaknesses and how to work through them to become a true vocalist who can sing and expand their range.
Send me a message to schedule an in-person or remote-vocal-coaching-session so that we can get to work.
Singing backing vocals is a unique talent not everyone has. Even if you can record a perfect lead vocal it doesn't mean you will be able to perform the backing vocals for it. I’ve been teaching artists for decades how to sing background harmonies, so whether you want to add your own backing vocals to your songs or want to be a background singer, I work with you to develop your ear and vocal skills to meet the challenge. I can also record any type/gender of singers to add backing vocals to your tracks.
More About Vocals
Before entering the studio:
Recording in a recording studio can be a very exciting experience for some people and a very stressing one for others. Come to the studio prepared, and save time, money and frustration by rehearsing with me before you record your song. Have a face-to- face session or a remote one via phone, Skype, Facebook or Whatsapp. I will prepare you for your studio recording and can even "go with you" to the studio (using these apps) to supervise the recording and help you maximize your performance and the time you spend in the studio. Send me a detailed message.
The power of the human voice can be mind boggling. There is so much information in and around people's voices - The sound of their voice, the color of it, the way they use it, its volume, energy and tone.
People often use their voice as a weapon, as if they're whipping people with it. Our voices were not designed to carry all that stress and anger, but rather as a means to express our true voice, one that is meant to heal ourselves internally, externally and outside of ourselves.
Many people are unaware that they are abusing their vocal cords, resulting in husky, muffled or unpleasant voices. A lot of mental challenges, like anxiety and stress, could be easily diagnosed when working with one's voice.
As a Certified Vocal Healer, Reiki Level 1 & 2 Practitioner & Theta healer. I have been helping people work through and move past their vocal blocks for over two decades.
Today my main focus is upon Theta Healing, while integrating my other healing methods to help people.
What is Theta Healing? It is a method of healing which treats any imaginable issue; physical, emotional, social, anything and everything which blocks our lives.
It is channeling based, which means every step of it is guided from an external source - Nothing is an opinion and all the information comes from a higher plane (divinity).
It is like a research on your life with resolutions coming from divinity. We all think we know ourselves, but there's so much junk in the backyard of our minds that have been rooted in our subconscious. Unresolved, we are unaware of these issues that need to be resolved so that we can move past our setbacks to ascend physically as well as spiritually.
Being an artist and a singer, I have a deeper connection to the human voice. The combination of being an artist and a healer has brought me additional depth and awareness in both fields, as these two work very well together, especially when helping artists.
If you want to learn and have a deeper understanding about your inner-self I can help you through my voice therapy techniques. Whether you are an artist, singer, voice over artist, narrator, announcer or none of the above I can help you.
If you suffer from vocal issues, vocal cords, lungs or chest issues, my vocal healing session will help you regain your true voice and authentic life back (Yeah, I meant “life”).

Creating music, songwriting and singing bring with them so many questions and fears.
Work to create beautiful and long lasting collaborative partnerships.
Collaborations is all about chemistry and building a bond
Over 20 years of experience working with many top industry professionals across multiple generes of music.
A lot of people can technically write a song on their own but not every songwriter is equally talented in writing both lyrics and music. Reaching out to other songwriters will not only benefit your songs, but it will also help take them to another level. I work to create beautiful and long lasting collaborative partnerships. Collaborations is all about chemistry and building a bond. Trust, talent and openness, vulnerability, honesty and authenticity is what it takes in order to create songs together and it is how I conduct myself in my work and in my personal life as well.
For more than 20 years I have been collaborating with dozens of lyricists, resulting in hundreds of songs. Many of which are in film & TV, music albums and mainstream radio. I am always in search of new and fruitful collaboration partners. My strong suit is music and the best fit for me when I collaborate would be a lyricist. We all know how demanding the music industry is lyrically. Hence, one of Nashville's nicknames is "Lyric town".
People who are not connected to the Nashville's music scene have no idea how demanding it is regarding lyrics. For an artist to cut one of our songs, a song pitched in Nashville nowadays needs to be fresh, unique and memorable, in order to be marketable and profitable. I have years of experience in collaboration with collaborative success.
Want to collaborate with me?
Send me a detailed message and tell me about yourself, your writing styles/genres, your goals with your songs and your writing/collaborating experience.
Creating music, songwriting and singing bring with them so many questions and fears.
Consulting with people who are not professionals can be very discouraging and unfortunately also misleading.
Too many artists have decided to abandon their dreams and distance themselves from these professions,
based on such false information and opinions they got from the wrong people to ask.
Trust and integrity are what guides me, as well as my afinity for helping others and I would like to help you too.
