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.

Macy Gray - I Try

God did I love that song.
