'Over in El Paso there's a brother/sister band making harmonizing music similar in style to acts like Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon and Crosby, Stills and Nash. They're called The Iveys. What is interesting about the self-titled, independently released, debut album out earlier this year is their sound brings to mind those artists just mentioned above even though these musicians are all too young to have been around during that classic rock heyday. Apparently, The Iveys musical sensabilities were influenced heavily by their father's taste in music. "Growing up we listened to all of our dad's old records, from The Beatles to the Rolling Stones, Queen to The Eagles. It really influenced our songwriting in a positive way." The Iveys are comprised of; Arlen (guitar/vocals), Jessica (keyboards/vocals) and Jillian (keyboards/vocals). Each are talented singers in their own right, but collectively, their singing is something special. Addionally, producer, Ettore Grenci brought in a group of talented Italian studio musicians who were able to back the the band in way that highlights those vocal harmonies featured on the album. Right from the opening track, Leave it to Love, it is apparent The Iveys were intent on keeping the focus on the strength of their singing. Going the Right Way and Whispered Worlds are two tracks on the CD that highlight lush vocal harmonies. For an avid music lover, the songs evoke nostalgic feelings from hearing bands like Fleetwood Mac on the radio. Although the sound is not new, it's still a pleasureable listen . There's also some positive, light-hearted pop elements to the songwriting that leaves a smile on your face. The band's experience at Sonic Ranch Recording Studios with Grenci producing led to some exceptionally high qualty recordings that highlight Arlen's songwriting and the girls' proficiency on the keyboards. If you enjoy listening to classic rock sounds like the Eagles or The Beatles then you should give The Iveys a listen. It seems like they're working hard to pay proper homage to their idols. Currently The Iveys are home in El Paso resting after a short summer tour.' ---Austin Concerts Examiner 'The pop and rock music world is full of good bands that are breaking through, but occasionally a new band comes to you with an outstanding debut album that catches you completely off guard and sweeps you right off your feet. For me, that debut album is the one that crossed my desk from The Iveys. The Texas based trio grew up surrounded by music of all types from the Beatles and Stones to Eagles and Queen. Needless to say, they were introduced at a young age to melody, harmony, and solid music that has stuck with them throughout their lives eventually leading to their self-titled debut album. The harmonies are an obvious focus of the album from the early stages of it as 'Sometimes' introduces you to their rich harmony blend that only siblings can offer. Throughout the 8-track release you are treated to mid to slow tempo cuts that lean heavy on the vocals. The passion in Arlen's leads on cuts like 'Going The Right Way' and 'The Promise' pull you into the songs and engulf you as you listen and it is easy to see why they've earned comparisons to the likes of Rob Thomas. When blending voices together in harmony, both Jessica and Jillian accent Arlen perfectly and when swapping leads with him their delivery brings a certain degree of vulnerability to the songs as is heard on 'Whispered Words.' This is a very solid debut effort that leaves me yearning for more and with TV spots already on E! And Fuse TV, and an album that sounds as good as this one does, I have no doubt in my mind that this is a band to keep watch on. ' ----The Guestlist.
