Ilton Sees The Light Through The Darkness in Debut EP, Good & Gone
It is a known fact that we have two families in life. Those that we are born with, and ones that we delightfully stumble upon. After immigrating to the U.S. from Greece at a young age and becoming a citizen at the top of the year, rising alternative pop artist, Ilton, shares his tale of discovering his second family in a foreign land through his debut EP, Good & Gone.
Good & Gone presents Ilton’s musical prowess and discovering his voice through difficult circumstances. His work urges the listener to not forget what we have gone through, but to say “I went through this, and now look at the beauty I have to look forward to”.
The title track, “Good & Gone” highlights the struggles of breaking away from the past while maintaining one’s own self integrity. The track is reminiscent of Sam Smith’s “Dancing With A Stranger” in that it’s a mellow dance vibe that will be stuck in your head for days on end. The second track, “Closer”, defines one urgent desire to reach self success despite feeling any sense of doubts and fear. This track displays uplifting beats and electronic balance to keep the listener engaged throughout.
Ilton and his family immigrated to the U.S. from Greece at a young age to seek opportunities and growth in a new home. Now Brooklyn based Ilton cites inspiration from New York’s local community of artists and finds solace in the support given between creatives outside of the music industry. Ilton started writing and producing for others in 2012, but it wasn’t until 2018 that he joined forces with Unisex Records that Ilton decided to take a step in his own light and create solo pieces. His debut single, “Going Up” began his underground following that allowed him to perform at multiple venues throughout New York City.
With two upcoming music videos on the horizon, be sure to keep an eye out for this blooming artist.
