THE ORGINS OF ILL LUCID ONSET: ILL LUCID ONSET comes from the Northwestern United States, residing in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon. Members spent their childhoods in Southern California, Vancouver, Washington, and Portland, Peru and the Northwest. They played music and sports and even were involved in community theater; a number of factors led them here.

Nothing compares to artists who simply want to write and play good songs for themselves, friends, family, and fans! The band began in 2002, after each of original members having roles in past bands and projects. Singer/guitarist, Ryan Aiello wrote most of songs after moving back to the Portland metro area, and good buddy, Nate Vick (bass,2004-2007), agreed to record them with the infamous music engineer Bob Moon (Tooth and Nail Records/Fender Center) and Tim Denny (Hyperstatic Union). By the fall, Tim Hensley (drums 2004-2009) and Marcus Young (guitars, 2004-2010) had joined the soulful, authentic group, and with the release of their first full-length project ("Something Unconditional", February, 2005) the band was born. 

Originally appearing under the names "Kocauli and "Starbelly", the band eventually settled on "Ill Lucid Onset.". Ryan Aiello (vocals/guitars) is the primary song writer,  with bassist Jim Beriault, and Gian Hererra on drums.
