About the Piece:
This was the very first song I have ever written in my life. Originally, it was going to be a simple instrumental piece, but a good friend of mine, an Israeli-born American violinist, Ariella Zeitlin-Hoffman, who could also sing, had been showing interest in collaborating on my original composition for a while (prior to this, our collaborations were solely arrangements) and so I had this idea to add lyrics to my own works and Shine was the simplest piece I was working on at that moment so I just went with it, composed simple lyrics about the moon and voila, my first ever song.
