Narkis dreamed of becoming a singer since childhood. He released his first album, Tfilat Chayay (The Prayer of My Life) at the age of 16. A few years later during his military service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Narkis joined Tamir Tzur to form the first Mediterranean musical group.

His sixth album, Rak Itakh (Only with You), which includes the hit "Lekhol Ekhad Yesh" (Everyone Has), placed Narkis at the center stage of Israeli music. This song was also chosen as the "Song of the Year" in Israel, and was very popular among football (soccer) fans. In 2001, Narkis released his album Ze Mehalev (Straight from the Heart). As with his previous albums, this was a great success and many of its songs became hits.

In 2003, the song "Words for Love" (Hebrew: "Milim La'Ahava" Hebrew script מילים לאהבה) won at the national finals organized by the Israeli Broadcasting Authority ("IBA") television channel, Channel One, against three other songs for the privilege to represent Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, due to his prominence and popularity on the Israeli popular music scene. The song ended up 19th out of the 26 Eurovision finalists.

At the age of 26, Narkis released his eighth album Milim La'Ahava (Words for Love), named after his Eurovision entry.

Narkis will perform at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2017 Maccabiah Games on July 6, 2017.
