Your feet will come and go
and lead you on
Right to a place
where you belong
I told you one day
you'd be free
Ilana Herst (Brooklyn, New York) is often compared to Ed Sheeran and Kacey Musgraves, but those in the know will also find traces of James Taylor and Jackson Browne in her layered and emotional lyrical style. Herst's original music is featured in indie film soundtracks, premiered at film festivals, and has received radio airplay. Most recently, Ilana completed recording her EP, with the release of her single, Living On, debuting in February 2019.
Songwriters who came before me
The way notes work together, creating something new where before nothing existed
Ilana's original song, "All That She Is," as well as four other original compositions, was featured in the film Zena in 2015.
Ilana's passion is songwriting for today's artists. From collaborative work to signed and sealed singles ready to play, Ilana stays current and intuitive about the needs and style of each artist. She is also excited to learn more about the particulars of composing for film and dreams of recording her work with a full orchestra.
