Lail Arad

is a singer/songwriter from London, born to Israelian parents and signed to French label Notify. Arad plays the piano and guitar and has a great sense of humour. Her songs have an almost theatrical way of telling stories. Pop you don't hear every day.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 2000?
Macy Gray - I Try

God did I love that song.

you try to stay up for more than 24 hours?

Then it's time for silence.

And then I will sing along!
