London based Singer/Songwriter ILONA releases her first single on the 10th of February, just in time for Valentines Day. It is a bittersweet song called My Favourite Defeat and tells the story of “the one that got away”. It has proved to be such a hit in her live set that fans and friends, who identify with the powerful lyrical message, urged her to release it as a kind of alternative anthem for the many people who aren’t actually in a relationship right now and for whom Valentines day has a more melancholic meaning.
Ilona will be playing a special acoustic set at London’s Regal Room on the 14th Feb at 8pm.

The pre-release video for My Favourite Defeat has already had critical acclaim and within a week had gone straight into the top 50 on the BEAT100 charts

Despite only entering the music business a little over a year ago, as an independent artist Ilona has already toured the UK twice and performed at the legendary SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. She has headlined the Hop Farm acoustic stage, featured on the Caffe Nero national playlist, gigged in LA,and even jammed with Ed Sheeran.
But in the last days of 2012 everything stepped up a gear when she discovered that the video for her song “Its 1966” had won the top spot as Video Of The Year in the Ladylake 3rd Annual Indie Music Awards, USA.

My Favourite Defeat comes out on miniMAJOR Music, the label that ILONA set up with manager/producer/writer Tony Moore which is distributed by Absolute via Universal worldwide.

Released on 10th February, Digital Only, Available on Itunes, Amazon and all good sites across the globe

Born in Bulgaria to a Russian Mother, Ilona moved to the UK when she was 14. She has always had a natural ability to communicate, speaking fluent Russian, Bulgarian, English and German. ILONA studied at the renowned Queen Mary University in London where she specialized in languages before embarking on her music career.

Tony Moore’s career includes being an original member of Iron Maiden, Playing keyboards for Cutting Crew, founding and running the Kashmir Klub and latterly The Bedford where he has helped many artists at the start of their careers including Paolo Nutini, James Morrison, Newton Faulkner, KT Tunstall and Ed Sheeran
