IVORY BLUE, an Indiana native, born under the name Devin Miclette, grew up in a troubled childhood and was given up for adoption at the age of 4 into a family that later caused them to run away from home at the age of 15, IVORY traveled while playing music in coffee shops and small venues before finding home in Kansas City, Missouri in 2010. This incredibly talented Alternative Rock/Pop singer-songwriter, who started writing music at the age of 14, immediately captured the hearts of young and old with ingeniously composed songs and powerful lyrics driven from painful life stories that relate to so many. With a looping act consisting of layers of soaring vocals, back vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, electronic drums and carefully placed sound effects, IVORY surprises crowds everywhere as no one expects a full band sound.
True talent, hard work, dedication, drive and never giving up paid off for IVORY BLUE and resulted in winning neXt2Rock 2017 over 1800 national bands. IVORY BLUE started a new chapter in their life as musician, singer-songwriter with the vision of doing more than just entertaining the crowd but to be a voice for those that need to be understood, accepted, respected and loved!
