THE ONLY VENUE IN TOWN:
A Personal Note From Heather: I spent the first three weeks of quarantine incredibly sick. With what ... I'm not sure, but the fever subsided and I have joined the livestreaming/ video-making community, alternating live performances like the one above with pre-recorded fun like this version of "The Animal Crackers Song" I did stuck with my family/band. There's a new page in the menu, where you can watch, listen, and tip if you can.
May 1, ilyAIMY is released a three-set live album on Bandcamp, from what now stands as the last full-band show we played. That night, rob's birthday, we were on fire, and the performances are some of our best. There's even a previously unrecorded song or two, covers of Tool, Portishead, a little Sade... AND there's even more merch and music is in the works, I hope to tell you about soon. Stay home, but stay YOU.
Heather is the GRAND PRIZE WINNER of the $10,000 Bernard Ebb Songwriting Award. On March 8, Heather's songs "Good Heart" and "If We Come Too Late" wowed the judges and landed her the win, along with a few free sessions at Innovation Station Studio! Final mixing is almost done, with plans to release two vinyl singles in late 2020. More on that soon!
