Ivypaint

The pop-punk band Ivypaint was formed in 2018 in Orlando, Florida, by Sean Duong (Vocals, Rhythm Guitar), and eventually filled out Christian Wheeler (Lead Guitar), and Jason Flanders (Drums).

With an emphasis on catchy melodies, vulnerable lyrics, emotive vocals, and driving guitars, Ivypaint cites influences such as, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Waterparks, All Time Low and Blink-182. Their debut EP “Quiet Compassion,” featuring lead single “Little Liaison,” was released in June 2019 and quickly picked up online traction, as the creative output that Duong utilized as an emotional therapy of sorts, covering topics such as failed relationships, and questionings of mental stability, all while still maintaining melodic sensibility.

Since the release of “Quiet Compassion,” Ivypaint have been in full throttle, creating buzz within the alternative scene with their sophomore EP “Blue Light,” featuring singles “50/50” (featuring Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens), and “Melatonin.” Excitedly sharing everything they have in store with the world as they gear up for another full year of consistent releases. Ivypaint are a force to be reckoned with!
