This website is a brief musical snapshot of singer/songwriter Michael Aielli.

In the early 1970's, Michael was a founding member of the Austin Texas band ZEUS (often referred to locally as The Aielli Brothers - Michael Aielli, Richard Aielli, & Louis Aielli) which evolved into MEDIA, then into MORRIS CODE, and finally into MICHAEL LOUIS in the mid 1980's.  When Louis Aielli moved to California in 1986, MICHAEL LOUIS disbanded and Michael began recording and producing all his own music as I.L.E. Jones here in Austin.

On the ZEUS, MORRIS CODE, & MICHAEL LOUIS albums, the band members that played on the recordings were a combination (or variation) of the following musicians:  Mark Miller (guitar & vocals), Greg Stegall (guitar), Tony Villegas (drums & vocals), Louis Vincent Aielli (keyboards, vocals), & Michael Aielli (guitar, bass guitar, vocals.)  More information can be found on the album Liner Notes.

On the I.L.E. Jones tracks, Michael Aielli played, recorded and produced all of his own material, except where otherwise noted.

Every track on this website can be listened to from start-to-finish.  So find a title you like, turn up the volume, and enjoy!

Another Day In Paradise

Another Day In Paradise - I.L.E. JONES

by I.L.E. Jones

In cart

Most of these songs were recorded with just an acoustic guitar and my Korg D1600MKII recorder. I usually write and record in the mornings just as soon as I roll out of bed. Definitely not any secret to success...it's just the way I do it. I'm never really sure where I'm going (musically or otherwise)...Just trying to smell the roses, avoid the Koolaide, and enjoy the ride. Things could be better, and things could be a hell of a lot worse. All in all, every day is just Another Day In Paradise!
