At 11:30 we talk with IVORY BLUE about their new single & video, “Starlit Love Child” released October 28, 2022, from their forthcoming 2023 album. The new single comes via Dark Spark Music owned and operated by veteran rock manager Vicky Hamilton. IVORY BLUE started writing music at a very young age, creating their unique alt-rock sound, using a tape recorder to superimpose sounds that added to a song production. After starting performances in coffee shops and small venues, they began refining their performance style, using digital looping pedals to stack harmonies and guitar parts live on stage, giving their solo shows the feel of a full band. In 2011, IVORY BLUE settled in Kansas City, MO and quickly began attracting a following for their strong vocals and deeply personal lyrics. On July 29th, 2022, and after studying the craft of recording and self- producing, this amazing singer-songwriter with a passionate love for everyone struggling through life, released their first full length album, COMPOUND LOVE. This was followed by their single, “Red Light” and now “Starlit Love Child.” More info at: https://linktr.ee/ivorybluemusic
