We’re pleased to announce the release of our new ‘lockdown’ song/video ‘Forever’ on Monday July 6th. As we announced previously, the song and video have been recorded and filmed remotely over the last few weeks. It’s the first time we’ve tried this and it’s been a great way to keep the creative process going during the lockdown. 

A huge thanks to all of you who took part in the video – it was a truly global effort and we had some very creative responses! The track will also be on the new album currently being recorded.

We’re making the track free to download and just ask that you consider making a donation, however small, to a charity of your choice instead.

From dark, twisted symphonies to sweet lullabies comes ILLUMINAE

The collective writing talents of Ian Jones (Karnataka, Chasing The Monsoon) and Agnieszka Swita (solo, Caamora) combined in a powerful new musical collaboration – ILLUMINAE.

Ian and Agnieszka are excited to announce their new project/collaboration – ILLUMINAE. The launch follows several months writing and working on pre-production for their forthcoming debut album ‘Dark Horizons’ – due for release in 2018.

Ian and Agnieszka will be starting full production soon. We’ll be bringing you regular updates on the debut album currently in production, releases and more.

Ian and Agnieszka are excited to announce that guitar icon, solo artist and Genesis star Steve Hackett will be a special guest guitarist on the debut Illuminae album.
Steve’s beautiful playing will bring a touch of magic to the album which is released early next year. Steve Hackett’s music has been a huge inspiration to both Ian and Agnieszka over the years; they feel honoured that Steve is contributing to the album.

Ian and Agnieszka are also really excited to announce their second special guest on the debut ILLUMINAE album is guitarist Luke Machin. Luke’s stunning playing recently elevated him into the Prog Magazine Best Guitarist poll top ten alongside guitar legends Steve Hackett, Steve Rothery and Guthrie Govan.

Thanks from ILLUMINAE
