Listen to our Ep
One dark evening, the stars aligned, a chord strummed and reverberated against a dark mahogany wooden guitar beside a roaring campfire, a powerful vocal melody was sung, and Illunis was forged.
By accident and spontaneity Sean Clark and Ali Faghihi combined forces to start Illunis in late 2015. Songs Sean had held secretly for years had gained a new life force with Ali’s unique vocal style. Throughout 2016 the acoustic duo hit the recording studio, played shows and developed the signature Illunis sound.
By 2017 Illunis elicited Barak Levi for his diverse and creative lead guitar playing. The trio continued on honing their skills and worked as a songwriting trio to develop warm acoustic finger-picked riffs, topped with tasteful and rhythmic lead guitar melodies, and a broad ranged authoritative vocal punch.
By early 2019, Illunis was ready for a richer and more dynamic sound. They recruited David Frankel as an eclectic multi-talented drummer. By late 2019, classically trained Jazz stand-up bassist Spencer Hutton had joined.
Currently Illunis is working in the studio on their debut album, and songs will be released in early 2020. Illunis continually strives to push musical elements, create a dynamic listening experience, and positively impact the lives and worlds of our listeners.
