The Ivy is an indie synth-pop duo from Oklahoma. Exemplifying a pure, nostalgic sound, they deliver electrifying performances featuring retro style grooves. The duo came together in the Oklahoma’s music scene, having first met at music production school. The band has since been touring and honing their live show, performing alongside acts such as LANY and The Band Camino. Being among the first indie pop bands in recent years to emerge from Oklahoma, the band has accomplished a lot already, completely organically. Having just wrapped up the summer playing a US tour supporting Grayscale, in the midst of their 3rd EP release, The Ivy is in the process of releasing their next project, starting with: Broad Shoulders.
Charleston’s Hunter Park is She Returns From War. With two full length albums under her belt and another one coming together in the studio it’s easy to say she has established herself as one of the strongest songwriters coming out of the modern south. Dazzling imagery and word play keep her listeners on their toes waiting for what turn her tune will take. She has shared the stage with bands like St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Shovels and Rope, and recently completed a west coast tour as the opening act for Band of Horses. She was asked to open for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders as a part of his rally in Charleston. There is no arguing with the fact that Park works hard in this ever changing industry, and with an underlying message of hope, we can see her magic hard at work as well.
