Melodic harmony arrangements and soulful synchronicity
— ARIEL HENDELMAN, The Jerusalem Post


Formed between Manchester, UK, and Israel, PORTNOY is the culmination of two brothers, Israel & Mendy, making music together for as long as they can remember. Two out of nine kids in a very musical family, their body of work spans many genres and includes one album under a different band name “Learn To Love” (2016, The Portnoy Brothers), one EP "The Garden Sessions" (2019), countless covers and their debut album, “No Complaints” (2019). Recorded and produced in Nashville TN, mixed and mastered in Israel, the brothers are excited to share this new gem with the world.

No Complaints carries a balancing act between retro vibes and up-to-the-moment observations, empathy and irony, a deep sense of rootedness and a sound that belongs everywhere.

PORTNOY have described their sound as Soul-Stirring Indie Folk-Rock. They have a breathtaking warm sound, with effortless harmonizing and easy melodicism. Imagine a combination of The Milk Carton Kids, Beatles, and Crosby Stills and Nash, to get your ears excited!

PORTNOY travel the world performing in a wide variety of venues, private events, festivals and more. Whether they're with their full band or playing as a duo, their distinct sound always shines through.
