ilan Laks Has been blowing audiences away with his storytelling rock. He has recorded and performed with the likes of Jackson Brown, Pat MacDonald, Paolo Baldi (Cake), Michael Jerome (Better Than Ezra), and Seth Ford Young (Tom Waits, Magnetic Zeroes).
His performances seamlessly adapt to and wrap the provided environment in an immersive experience. With or without a band he commands attention with his powerful voice, dramatic tales, and dynamic guitar playing.
With the great Engineer, Kevin Jarvis, ilan finished recording his new batch of songs in Venice Beach California, for his third self produced album. ilan has been playing in some of LA's best venues including the Mint, the historic Mayan, and four shows at The House Of Blues, as well as local favorites like the Piano Bar, Room 5, and Witzend.
Last Month Laks was a featured artist during the incomparable Eric Mcfadden's (PFunk) 5 week residency at The Mint that included Steve Perkins (Janes Addiction), Norwood Fisher (Fishbone), Blackbird Mcknight (PFunk), and Mike Watt (Minutemen, The Stooges), and more.
Laks' blistering performance of his song Feast, with the all star band was captured by 24 track recording and video team, and made into a video.
