I first heard Ivy Levan while watching the recent remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (I know, it wasn’t the original, but still, it was entertaining). Her character, the Usherette, was adorable and enchanting. Enough so that I was compelled to find out if she was the real deal, musically speaking. As it turns out, she is.
Her music and visual style are kind of in the same general area as Madonna, Gaga, Pink, and Christina. But she definitely makes it her own, kind of a blue-eyed soul/pop sound with a bit of a mischievous wink to let you know she’s not taking it too seriously, and neither should you. But make no mistake, the woman’s got some serious pipes.
