Orly Bendavid is a Brooklyn based ,singer/songwriter, and poet. Orly and her band the Mona Dahls, link indie-pop, jazz, and folk to create a reflective, dramatic, and rich experience. Her lyrical repertoire hangs on elusively simple words and cryptic stories centered around addiction, romantic entanglements, and the human condition.
Orly has opened for folk legends Carolann Solebello, Rachael Kilgour, and Bev Grant, and performed at the 2018 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s emerging artist stage. In addition, Orly has been a recurring member of the Jack Hardy Song exchange since 2013, and performs frequently in NYC’s music scene as well as at several “unplugged” Sofar Sounds shows around the city.
Orly and the Mona Dahls’ first album “Mona” was recorded at Grand Street with producer Huw Price (David Bowie, Primal Scream, Nick Cave, and My Bloody Valentine). Mona is a collection of character portraits, “Christine,” about a washed-up former model encountered at a bar, “String Bean,” inspired by an unknown anorexic teenage,pop star; and “Oh God” delving into the depths of addiction, and the cycle of shame it creates.
