Focal Point is pleased to welcome back ilyAIMY to our stage.
ilyAIMY (i love you And I Miss You) is a percussive acoustic rock animal hailing from Baltimore, MD. Mixing genres from rock to folk to soul to bluegrass; flavours as varied as jazz and hip hop curl through what is undoubtedly one of the most exciting sounds in today's folk(ish) music scene. Recently hailed as an audience-voted "Most-Wanted Artist" at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, ilyAIMY combines award-winning songwriting, tight male/female harmonies, signature intricate slap-style guitar work, ukulele, djembe and a curiously Muppet-like stage presence into an exquisite package.
2012 marks the 9th year ilyAIMY has spent traveling these United States. From coast to coast and end to end rob Hinkal and Heather Lloyd have been Living off of papercuts and string cuts, their music and their wits for almost a decade. In the past year alone they've received accolades from Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance, the National Association for Campus Activities and the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, and over the years have played everything from bait shops, to biker weeks, colleges and coffeehouses and clothing-optional resorts.
"A bone-rattling acoustic act... with driving lyrical force [and] male/female harmonies that lock in, lift, drop and pull ... And then they slow it down and rip you open."
