IVY RED (Jade Keywood) lets you look through the windows to his soul with his dark confessional ‘ABSENT’ produced by LMC.
IVY RED is an alternative R&B songwriter producer and performer. By opening up the darkest parts of his mind he lets you into IVY’s world guiding you with a melancholic, gravelly vocal. He likes to describes his sounds as crystal grunge R&B
ABSENT is a warm blend of dark ambient synths , heavy bass and alluring vocals, a combination that makes for the perfect introduction to IVY’s new wave of R&B.
“The track puts a spotlight on the undying truth that people will care more when you’re gone. If i went absent and died they would start to pick up on the problems i was dealing with and realise i was showing serious signs but by then it would be too late. “She said she love me for the music and the cocaine” brushes over the memory of a past friend wanting to be around me because i had drugs, oblivious to the idea that they were using the suppression to my pain as their pleasure” - IVY RED
IVY RED has striked audiences throughout New Zealand under his previous alias (FKA LUNAR) earning him a spot at Rhythm and Vines 2017 as well as being hand picked by VILLETE as support for her Drip Crimson EP tour.
