illium is a folk/pop trio


While working on a solo E.P in August of 2013., Abigail Kohout and Justin Yap realized their chemistry and connection to making music was something very real. As they continued writing and working together, Michael Rickord joined immediately after an impromptu audition at Justin’s home that October. They quickly began to connect and hone a unique sound, bringing together 5 songs relaying love, loss, distance and the “itch to run”. With much support and encouragement from friends and family, a 5 track E.P. was recorded at a quaint home studio in the middle of nowhere, Iowa (Nevada).

After the release of the Runaway E.P. in March, Illium will be taking this collection (and several new songs) on tour during the summer of 2014. Their recording of a full-length album begins this fall.
