He studied classical music and Jazz at The New School in Tel Aviv and in New York. His music is influenced by classical music, Israeli tunes and Yiddish folklore.

The melody is Eyal Lovett's art form, the tune that makes you think. He produces them with impressive delicacy. Somewhere inbetween and away from his great influencers Bach and Chopin, Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau and Miles Davis.
