Ilious said of his new album that it is just one part of a bigger vision that he has for the future.
“This project is just the start in a series of different projects I have in mind for the future,” Ilous said. “I decided to start with covers of familiar and rock favorites to introduce the Latin / Flamenco rock sound to my audience, and I plan to start up a series of intimate club shows reminiscent of close-knit Latin and gypsy gatherings.”
Ilous was upbeat when talking about what audiences can expect from Gypsy Dreams.
“This has been a long road, but the final tracks sound truly amazing, and are definitely worth the wait,” Ilous said. “I thank all my fans and band for being a part of this journey and for all your support along the way. I couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you.”
