"Harmony and Percussive Guitar"

"A bone-rattling acoustic act... with driving lyrical force, then male/female harmonies that lock in, lift, drop and pull ... And then they slow it down and rip you open." - OnTap Magazine

"ilyAIMY At the New Deal Cafe"

“Heather generally provides the honey, but her voice can just as easily rise to an alley cat wail worthy of P.J. Harvey. The girl can flat-out sing just about anything. I for one would like to hear her take center stage more often.” - Allzah.com

"I Love You And I Miss You"

“A beautiful, highly trained alto voice … though she is just as capable of throwing guts and gravel into her tone ... and she’s no slouch on the guitar.” - Rocky Mountain Bullhorn, CO

Brand New CD, Between Lover & Twilight RELEASE AUGUST 31!



Logging 100,000 miles through nearly 40 states in 4 years, ilyAIMY's (i love you And I Miss You) core duo of Rob Hinkal and Heather Lloyd have honed their modern take on folk: a unique slap-bass/clawhammer banjo approach to acoustic guitar, high-energy tribal percussion, award-winning narrative songwriting and signature male/female harmonies.

ilyAIMY's CD, "The Fifth Circle," has also been released in 2006 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 ... stirring percussive tumult ... and a hair-trigger vocal/lyrical integrity that you'll only hear here."

Compared to: Rusted Root, Buckingham/Nicks, Jethro Tull, acoustic Tool, Ani Difranco, Keller Williams, "Nickel Creek on crack," Alice in Chains, the Indigo Girls, Metallica, and Cry Cry Cry.
