About Ninet Tayeb: Ninet has definitely made a name for herself, and it all started back when she was first known for winning Israeli Idol. Her debut album took less than a day to go platinum and yielded five No. 1 singles — not to mention a long-running TV series (which she starred in) based on her life. Now, she is releasing her fifth album Paper Parachute, a collection of hefty rock songs with deep resilience, fierce determination and disarming vulnerability.
