About Sister Ivy
Sister Ivy fuses Neo-soul, Jazz, R&B, and Rock elements to carry poetic musings to the listener’s ear on a groove-able beat. Lyrical content spans a wide spectrum, emotional states ranging from sweet infatuation to righteous anger; content ranging from entomological curiosity to suspicions of an impending apocalypse. However, no matter how dim the story seems, there is always a glimmer of hope hidden…somewhere. The sonic vehicle on which the lyrics travel is twisted and expansive, with influences spanning from Badu and Glasper to Radiohead and the Mars Volta.
Listen at your own risk. Sister Ivy may attempt to challenge your core beliefs or (gasp) move your feet a little.

Rachel basically came out of the womb singing, but it wasn't until the ripe age of six, when her family moved into a parsonage with a junkyard ready piano in the living room that her official on again off again affair with music began.
Ask her about it sometime.
