IVORY HOURS


Ivory Hours is an alt-pop juggernaut from London, Ontario. Singer siblings Luke and Annie Roes have been riding an upward spiral since their return from Vancouver in the fall: winning a contest from 98.1 Free FM in January, recording ‘Mary’ at EMAC Studios in the spring and garnering their first commercial radio play for the eponymous single.

‘Mary’ sees the band trading its folky vestiges for upbeat, colorful pop - dishing up six eclectic tunes that range from sun-soaked bangers (Hello Honey, Mary) to soul-wrenching ballads (I’ll Stay Away).

The rhythmic pulse of newcomers Thom Perquin (Drums) and Chris Levesque (bass) heralds a new sensibility for the band; the saccharine tunes slyly delivering Luke’s moody lyrics exploring love, loss and depression.

The band has built up an impressive local following and are primed for key slots at Lachie Music Festival, Wild Mountain Music Festival and Rockin’ Wheel. They’ve extended their reach into Toronto playing Lee’s Palace, The Rivoli and The Horseshoe Tavern where they’ll return on July 25th on the heels of a Western tour.
