Shoshan started out in the Goldfingers band, which he joined while still in high school.
He later joined Shokolada, whose other members were Zvika Pik and Zvika Noy. The latter composed most of Shoshan’s hits, including “The Boy Turned 16” (composed with Kobi Oshrat), “Genesis” and “Little Girl.”
Shoshan entered mainstream Israeli pop when he played Berger in Hair.
Shoshan’s last album, “Place for Change,” was released three months ago and the single “Believe in Yourself” came out a month ago.
