Thriving Ivory’s music is really good. They have an excellent sense of song-writing backed by some great musicianship. Their self-titled debut is a well-produced body of work that is sure to bring this five-member act tons of new fans and accolades.
However, the biggest issue with the group’s sound is Clayton Stroope’s vocals. Maybe it’s just me, but something about the tonal qualities in his voice are instantly irritating to me. I believe that music would be boring without diversity in style and sound, but I just couldn’t get past it in this case.
This is a solid effort by a talented band, but not something I’d want to hear more that once.
