With a stage set for baroque lute, electric cello, Irish bones, fretless bass, bodhran, violin, colascione, acoustic guitars, myriad drums and types of hand percussion, it would be excusable for an audience to have no idea what’s about to happen – but ilyAIMY and Ayreheart create a beautiful, eclectic, coherent collective reframing the former’s award-winning songwriting with the latter’s progressive Renaissance arrangements, and the latter’s GRAMMY award-nominated, Celtic and jazz-infused instrumentation with the former’s electric stage presence and 4-part vocal harmonies. “ ilyAYREheart’s ” music spans hundreds of years, from heart-achingly beautiful ballads sung by singer/songwriter Heather Aubrey Lloyd in Old Scots to epic modern compositions inspired by Frank Herbert’s Dune with a couple of Led Zeppelin covers to round it all out.
“[Ayreheart] IS BORN OF WHAT HAS COME BUT LEADS US INTO WHERE WE CAN GO: OLD FORMS BORN ANEW AND EVER FRESH.”
~ Robert Aubry Davis, creator, producer, and host of Millennium of Music
“[ilyAIMY has] a style that’s very much their own; influences from indigenous tunes along with dark and edgy folk numbers, the band ultimately provides [an]interesting in-your-face blend of rock through whatever direction they choose”
~ Declan Poehler | Frederick News-Post
