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?

I'm not very good without my sleep. Maybe this will keep me going.

you come home from the club?

Then it's time for silence.

you sit by a camp fire?
Tracy Chapman - Give Me One Reason To Stay Here

And then I will sing along!

you prepare a candle light dinner?

So romantic, it will win over any lover.

Don't ask why.

A song to flow like the river

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?

It has to be rock'n'roll to block out the noise of the underground.
