ABOUT

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.
