Biography

Fresh off her European tour/writing excursion, Ila Minori, San Antonio, TX native just recorded her full-length album with internationally acclaimed producer Jason Rubal (Amanda Palmer/the Cure), who discovered her music when she played at Dewey Beach Music Conference.  

Often compared to artists the likes of Joan Baez or Ani DiFranco, Ila Minori is a Mexican singer and songwriter whose music features intimate folk-pop sounds and touching personal stories.

 Her sound is understated, elegant and honest, allowing beautiful melodies to collide with honest and heartfelt lyrics that deal with the artist's recent life events and feelings. Her recent album, "Traveling with ghosts" is a earnest depiction of Ila's recent journey through Italy. She was half the world away, yet she still carried her pain, uncertainty and darkness with her. However, she let it all go and found love, creativity and inspiration in the process of exploring the Mediterranean country. Based in Rome for part of the year, Ila traveled up to Trentino, a northern region of the country, where she found creative inspiration in the sheer beauty and comfort of the Alps. Here's where the album came to life,leading to new opportunities, tour dates and record deals - as the album is released in partnership with Bakraufarfita Records (Berlin)

Lyrics

I Took the Money

Written By: Erica Monzon

I TOOK THE MONEY

CALLED YOU YESTERDAY
MAYBE ITS ALL THE SAME
A SIMPLE REPLY
I CARRIED AWAY

I SPENT A LIFETIME WAITING

BECAUSE YOU ASKED ME BABY

I TOOK THE MONEY HONEY
BECAUSE YOU ASKED ME BABY

SAW YOU YESTERDAY
MAYBE ITS ALL THE SAME
AS BLUE AS THE SKY
CARRIED AWAY

I SPENT A LIFETIME WAITING
BECAUSE YOU ASKED ME BABY
I TOOK THE MONEY HONEY
BECAUSE YOU ASKED ME BABY

Panoramic View

Written By: Erica Monzon

Are you feeling a little lonely out here on your own again?

is the pressure of the ages weighing heavy on your back again?

There's a Panoramic View on the Mountain Top
with the Brightest Stars of everyone i've loved

Hold on to the ones you love the ones youre dreaming of

Hold on to the days that pass because their moving fast

There's Panoramic View On the Mountain top
with the Brightest Stars of everyone i've loved

Yeah There's a Panoramic View on the Mounting Top
with the brightest stars of everyone I loved
