Growing up with immigrant Hispanic parents gave ILISH a different perspective in life. It taught him the morals of marriage, hard work, and entrepreneurship.
His parents owned an Art Gallery that was going to be his inheritance, but ILISH felt a calling in music. It troubled his parents, but they fully supported his dream. His 1st debut project "Levels" took him to SXSW 2017 as a featured artist. The goal in ILISH's music is to uplift this generation.
