Kane, Steve and Ben are a well known 3 piece blues rock band 'IVY' from the Central Coast, NSW, Australia. They have bought out their new self titled ep IVY which brings us joy and makes us jump high enough to head butt the ceiling! Purchase their ep here on iTunes
What we like about it?! We go crazy for blues rock and Ivy take it to another level with drivy rock riffs with tight drum and bass from Steve and Ben and Kane's insane vocals over the top of tight. Kane also let's loose with his electric guitar solos and we can't help but be reminded of Jimmy Hendrix and a reckless abandonment where the music just takes over and we are in awe! We saw them live a couple of weeks ago and they blew people's minds and pants off!!
How did the ep come to life? To be honest this EP was about 4 years in the making. It was put on, off, on, off until we finally knuckled down and started pre-production in September last year.
Over 4 years we wrote about 30 tracks, then in September we narrowed it down to 10 tracks to record on a pre-prod demo. Then from there chose the final 3 tracks.
Over the 4 years we played around 100 shows but had nothing to show for it. And by that i mean people would come up to us, loving our set, asking for our music, and we had nothing to give them. We laid down a couple of sweet singles back in 2012 which unexpectedly made it onto triple j. But we never officially released them.
Who is your producer?? We owe the amazing outcome and sound of this EP to our epic producer, Ryan Hazell, who’s worked with the likes of The Black Keys, Neil Young and a bunch more. Between the 3 of us we’ve recorded a fair bit. But have never come across such a dedicated, professional and fun producer. It’s been an awesome year already.
Live music and bands supported so far? We’ve opened the main stage at mountain sounds festival opening for acts such as Alison Wonderland, SAFIA, Tkay Maidza, The Griswolds, DZ Deathrays and more. Recently we have been supporting acts such as The Potbelleez and The Beards and have interest from a couple of sweet record labels off the back of this EP.
