ILAN fell in love with music as a young boy when he discovered his family's cd collection, listening non-stop to the beatles, paul simon, bob marley, pink floyd and santana.
When he was 13 years old, his brother handed him the album 'CRASH' by Dave Matthews Band, which inspired him to pick up the acoustic guitar. That Summer, his brother taught him how to play the instrument and took him to his first world music concert at the hollywood bowl.
Having grown up in Los Angeles, ILAN spent much of his teenage years attending live music performances around the city and was exposed to a diverse range of musical genres.
During his early adulthood, he traveled to West Africa, Latin America, and the Middle-East, where he fell deeply in love with the rich music of those cultures.
After 15 years of writing, performing, and recording music, ILAN is ready to share his inspiring message with the world. His new record, 'The Winged Ones,' is a collection of beautiful songs about birds and the messages they carry.
Produced by renowned spiritual music artist 'Shimshai' and former 'Weezer' guitarist Jason Cropper, the album features an array of world-class musicians, while showcasing ILAN's unique songwriting style and diverse musical palate.
