Omri is to release two new CDs under his own name in the coming year - the first EP of his NYC trio ‘Hovercraft’ in the spring of 2020 and an electronic beat album with British producer and beatmaker AVER at the end of 2020.

I've been using my set of Kirlin cables on every show in the past year, and it's unbelievable how they still work just like new! 

I'm using Kirlin jack cables, XLR's, jumper cables and they all became an inseparable part of my rack that goes with me through flights, train rides, outdoor stages and even recording studios. 

The sound is always super clean and I never had to worry one bit. Thank you Kirlin!
