Fronted by acoustic guitars and tightly interwoven male/female harmonies, ilyAIMY ( ill YAY' mee ) is live percussive performance, a "combustible attack on the usual singer-songwriter fare," and "a welcome jolt in a stream of ... coffeehouse folkies." Formed in 1999 and now touring the country as the core duo of rob Hinkal and Heather Lloyd since 2003, ilyAIMY (i love you And I Miss You) has been bringing their passion, their vision and their unique humour to audiences from New Hampshire to Georgia to San Diego to Seattle and everywhere in between. Whether performing as the duo, trio or full quartet, ilyAIMY combines high-energy tribal percussion, culturally and stylistically diverse musical styles, award-winning songwriting and signature male/female harmonies with a unique stage charisma into a show that is as intense as it is intimate. Their 2006 release, "The Fifth Circle," has been released to reviews like this one from the Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange: " An acoustically roiling, combustible attack on the usual singer/songwriter fare ... well crafted, thoughtful songs ... stately and intuitive piano ... stirring percussive tumult ... and a hair-trigger vocal/lyrical integrity that you'll only hear here. "
