Ilish Eduardo Valdivia "ILISH" the youngest of 3 siblings was born and raised in Miami,FL. At the age of 3 he picked up a microphone and began singing to his mother. Ever since that moment he was driven to make music. Over the years ILISH learned how to play the piano, engineer music, and song write. There was something that drew his spirit to want to make music as an escape from reality. While many of his friends pursued the 9-5 lifestyle; ILISH knew he was destined for something greater! At the age of 23 ILISH owns his own recording studio, manages his bookings with his wife, and tours internationally by simply building relationships. ILISH is more than a music artist. He is a loving husband, a devoted Christian, and a mentor for youth at his home church.
