Biography

The music of Iluvatar (i-LOO-va-tar) cannot be accurately summed up with a casual phrase or label. Having a solid foundation in rock music, Iluvatar combines different elements from other genres such as jazz, classical, and psychedelia, and weaves them into sound tapestries that, while pushing the boundaries of the standard rock formula, remain very accessible, even radio-ready. Although often incorporating extended instrumental passages, time signature shifts, strong dynamics, and sometimes unconventional arrangements, the music steers away from the self-indulgence of many artists that fall into the “progressive” genre. The focus remains on creating unique songs with strong memorable melodies and heartfelt vocals. The end result is music that can be appreciated by both the casual listener and aficionado alike.

Taking their name from a character in J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel “The Silmarillion”, this Baltimore, Maryland group consists of:



Glenn McLaughlin - Vocals, Percussion
Dennis Mullin - Guitars
Jim Rezek - Keyboards
Dean Morekas - Bass, Bass Pedals, Backing Vocals
Chris Mack - Drums, Percussion




History:

The band’s roots go back to the 1983 and a local progressive rock cover band called Sojourn. Many of the songs and lyrics on the first album, as well as a few on the second, were written or co-written by original Sojourn guitarist Tom Kraus (currently a member of Brave New World). Tom left the line-up when Sojourn mutated into Iluvatar in 1992.
