Back in the 1990s, when many of us were still at school, Gilad was in a cover band. Cover bands who can really play are always popular because the audience knows the songs already. Getting the live experience of your favourite tracks makes a world of difference even if it's not the original musicians. It's almost like enjoying the song for the first time all over again. Since his time on the local gig circuit, Gilad has spread his wings and started composing his own material. This propelled him further in his home country of Israel, where he has received prime-time television appearances, radio exposure, and even a personal thank you from US President Barack Obama. Amazing!
Pianos and acoustic guitar ring out in a peaceful and sombre melody. Gilad begins singing, a homely and iconic voice wavers across pin-point notes. The poetry of the lyrics is based on a 300 year old classic poem. Gilad loves to find songs that reincarnate traditional words for a modern audience. The feelings within the classic works are immortalised in their regeneration. The song sings about an ungrateful person, who never took the time to give back or show a symbol of gratitude. It's a lightening of burdens when it's time for them to leave.
