: Fall in love with Iluka

Treeblog: Fall in love with Illuka

Meet Sydney's quintessential indie artist, Iluka.

Iluka, is the alter-ego of Sydney musician Nikki Thorburn. Filled with retro jazz vibes, it's easy to see the connection between Iluka's music and the artist's that have inspired her like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Billie Holiday and Tim Buckley.

Smokey and soulful, with a voice beyond her years, Iluka will have you coming back for more. Starting out in early 2011 with her debut EP 'To The Place', she has since received air play with Triple J, FBi, 3RRR and more.

With her beautiful lyrics telling tales, inspired by her travels through Europe and Africa it's easy to get lost in the worlds Iluka builds.
