Bio

Ivy-Jane Browne is a 20-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer from Sydney’s inner-west. Born in Sydney to musician parents, she grew up on the sound of Joni Mitchell, Bright Eyes and Gillian Welch. Combining her first love of language and her growing obsession with pop music - Ivy began to write songs at the age of 11. Drawing inspiration from poets such as T.S. Eliot, Charles Bukowski, and Leonard Cohen, she makes use of dark imagery and gruesome realism. Abundantly personal and vulnerable, her music explores the grisly aspects of human connection in a sparkly pop context. Her debut single 'Savannah' was released in August 2018, a dark synth-pop track exploring female sexuality & carnality as well as the volatile nature of envy. The single was followed by a music video, directed by Sydney-based director Imogen McCluskey and produced by Fat Salmon Productions. The video was the 2018 winner of Best Music Video at International Women's Film Festival as well as at Sydney Lift-Off Film Festival and Moondance International Film Festival. Ivy has just released her debut EP, Midsummer. Working with Sydney-based producer and musician Jerome Blazé, Ivy blended her love of glossy pop with his love of atmospheric electronica to create Midsummer.

Feels like i've read something deeply personal here. This one is very stunning and the production sits perfectly against it.

The subtlety of voice, production and lyric is something else... Delicate and detailed like an imperial faberge egg. I wasn't surprised to see that Jerome was involved in the production, his is a deft touch.
