Illicit Nature began in october of 2017 in Boise, Idaho with Ethan Taylor and Parker Johnson writing and playing songs in a small bedroom. the addition of Cameron Elgart on drums completed the band having their first full practive on new years day. After only one week of practice, and one show, Illicit Nature recorded a solid five song demo “No Surf in the NorthWest”. Adding second guitarist, David Adkins, Illicit Nature then released a single with a B-Side.
After months of planning, Illicit Nature went on their first tour, playing 10 shows from Seattle to Salt Lake and Twin Falls. Playing almost 30 shows in their first year alone. Illicit Nature is a four-piece garage punk rock band that brings life and energy to the stage. With both 90s punk and grunge riffs and face-melting solos, there’s something for everyone. Illicit Nature is currently working on new music for their first full length album.
