The winner of Valley Cultural Foundation’s Rock the Valley – Battle of the Bands 2020, Illunis was spontaneously forged when Sean Clark and Ali Faghihi combined musical forces 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. In 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 fingerpicked riffs, topped with tasteful and rhythmic lead guitar melodies, and a broad ranged authoritative vocal punch. In 2019, recruited David Collins Frankel as an eclectic multi-talented drummer and they were off to the races while Sean left. Illunis continually strives to push musical elements, create a dynamic listening experience, and positively impact the worlds of their listeners.
