It doesn't matter if a story really happened, what really matters in a song is that its feels authentic. As a passionate music lover, a song has to touch something in me, I want to hear the story behind the scenes and, with the right scenario, I can connect with the song.
When I first heard about Ilan Bell, I had a feeling I would get to hear one of the best singer-songwriters in New York. I had seen that he was collaborating with other acclaimed artists and was in the process of writing his own songs. And from what I’d heard about him, he promised to be a young talent having just finished his Masters in Songwriting and Production at Berklee NYC.
Previously under the pseudonym Native, the singer-songwriter with Swiss roots now released music under his real name Michael Benjamin. On 11 November, It's Okay, the first single from his upcoming debut album The World Is Still Beautiful was released into the world.
