Ivory Hours Video shoot
Ivory Hours (www.ivoryhours.com) is an organic blend of wailing jukebox blues guitar, melodic country vocals and a slice of sixties soul music that makes for a rare sonic smorgasbord of roadhouse rock and roll. Citing influences from the 60s & 70s, the band borrows elements like country twang, roaring blues and cathartic vocal harmony and marries them with a modern touch to spark the interests of bearded beer-swillers and two-stepping grannies alike. Fans of Raising Sand by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, along with the straightforward sounds of Norah Jones and the upbeat Alabama Shakes should enjoy Ivory Hours.
This year welcomed the addition of Chris Levesque’s versatile bass lines and the subtle roar of ‘Gentle’ Thom Perquin on drums. With a rock solid rhythm section in tow, Ivory Hours has taken shape as an entertaining and explosive live act capable of joining heartbreaking ballads with howling electric blues. The band is currently playing gigs in new cities, including Toronto venues The Horseshoe Tavern, The Rivoli and Lee’s Palace. Since winning the 98.1 Free FM Under the Cover's Contest, Ivory Hours has been posted up at EMAC Studios in London, Ontario, getting set to release their third EP "Mary" on May 30th. This set of six eclectic pop tunes places a new emphasis on live performance while lyrically exploring similar themes of love, loss and authenticity. The title track “Mary” has been added to regular rotation on 98.1 Free FM following the release of an upbeat dance video.
Look for them at the Lachie Music Festival at Cayuga, Wild Mountain Music Festival in Hinton AB, and RockinWheel in Mount Brydges Ontario
