Aussie songstress Thavy Ear has been flexing her vocal muscles for a while now, working with some of the countries most respected names, but the time has come for her to step forward with her own creation, a six track EP titled ‘For Your Ears Only’, released through Hydrofunk Records/MGM on 24th June.
Born to Cambodian parents, Thavy’s love of music began at a young age. Writing her first song at age 13 her formative years were anything but easy, however with music in her life, she somehow felt that things would always work out. Feeling strongly about music as a career path, she always managed to interweave it into her education, eventually completing a Bachelor of Arts in Music Business/Performance at RMIT University.
Over the years, Thavy has worked with a massive array of music icons from both Australia and abroad including the likes of Brian Campeau (Inertia), DeeJaye Katch (Resin Dogs /2Dogs/Hydrofunk), Dave Atkins (2Dogs/Wolfmother), Sereck (Def Wish Cast/Celsius), Resin Dogs, Def Wish Cast, Lance Willson, Mohamed Komba (Diafrix/Illusive Sounds), Avene, Royalston (Hospital/Med School), Greg Packer (Interphase/Good Looking), Ian Peres (Wolfmother), Alan Mawdsley, Hau Latukefu (Koolism), Abstract Rude (ATU), Bradford Ellis (The Nextmen), DJ JS-1 (Rock Steady Crew) and many many more, making her one of the country’s most diverse female vocalists and songwriters.
Having come through the other side of life experiences that would break many, Thavy has instead taken her background of hardship and used it to inspire some truly remarkable music that is continuing to evolve with each new session in the studio.
Choosing to spread her creative energy across the urban and electronic landscapes, Thavy is as equally comfortable on a soulful lounge rhythm as she is on a seductive dance anthem. While the young songstress is not easily comparable, her broad musical horizon takes influence from most genres across the modern musical spectrum.
For Your Ears Only EP captures Thavy at her best across 6 tracks which were brought to life with the help of David ‘Acosta’ Atkins on production duties.
Currently dividing her time between her job at a major music organisation and the studio, it seems that after many years in the making, Thavy’s musical career is starting to reach full bloom.
