This link is for a young Texas group, The Ivey’s. “Lady Made of Stone” is the first video and single release for their new album. I’d spend a couple of paragraphs bragging on these kids, but their music speaks for itself. The music they write is wonderfully complex and multi-dimensional and allows us to do the storytelling. Our production company did the video (from storyboard to the final retouches) and we’re pretty darned proud of it.
Learn more about the band @ theiveysmusic.com and us @ www.vidnews.net/
PS – As you can see from the credits even though we’re a very small
production company, this was a true family project. The band are our
cousins, my daughter wrote the storyboard, my sons worked as AP and grip
and my husband did his magic as jack of all trades from director to
camera to editing. The best thing about small business in America is
being able to watch your kids grow and develop their own talents. Not
bad for a bunch of farm and ranch kids from Texas.

Fellow Texans! Great talent.
The Professor was kind enough to post my daughter’s music video quite some time ago. Their band had one of the top music producers in the country (if not the top) with tons of money he put into the production.
Your production quality looks just as good and the song is excellent!
Look forward to hearing more and lots of luck to you all!!!
What is her band? Please share and I’ll look for them in iTunes.
They were called “Sawtelle,” and the video the Professor posted was the song of the same name.
They’re history now. But I asked my wife, and she said that song is on iTunes. If you can find it, I hope you like it!
Time to look to the future and cheer on The Iveys!
Love it, thank you!
Awesome. Thanks for sharing.
Just bought the album on iTunes. Thanks for the tip!
Ah, ha! Another small business success story. Now, let’s tax it out of existence.
Or, in the spirit of “redistribution of wealth”, let’s break up this band and send the artists to other, less successful bands. Either one fits the progressive mold.
FYI, The Iveys was the name of Badfinger before they signed to Apple records in 1969. As you may know, Badfinger had bad luck after the signing. Previous agreements prevented the release of several albums and two of their original members committed suicide. So my advice to the Iveys, KEEP THE NAME.
The Iveys are a family band, and Ivey is their last name. They’ve all been Ivey’s since the day they were born and for several generations before that. In Texas, the entire Ivey clan is known to be hardworking farmers and business people. This latest generation of the family has put in tremendous work and dedication into a difficult and risky business.
The tragedies that befell Badfinger ended many years ago. It seems best to leave them in the past, and let their positive contributions to the music world live beyond their time.
