via Cherrytree Records/Interscope: June 4th, 2013 — Santa Monica, CA — Cherrytree Records/Interscope latest signing, singer and songwriter Ivy Levan, releases her debut EP, entitled Introducing The Dame, via all digital retailers today. In addition, a video for the EP track “Hot Damn” premieres today on VEVO.
The Arkansas native applies her big, powerful voice and sassy delivery to a style of music she calls “swamp-hop” — a down and dirty brew of brass beats and swagger with a unique sound built around sultry vocals full of grit and venom. Says Levan, "I'm not here to preach a message, I'm just telling my story through my songs and hopefully others can relate and get down! It's a win win." Levan cuts a striking figure with her sleek skyscraper frame, diamond-cut cheekbones, and blonde pompadour with the brash attitude of a noire femme fatale. Ivy will be bringing her one-of-a-kind sound and look to audiences across the U.S. this month opening for Fitz and the Tantrums. Please see below for all tour dates.
