Tim De Graaw was born and raised in South Africa, moved to LA and now calls London home. His debut single Ivory is a retro rock anthem - loud but radio friendly. He got burned by some girl, but ended up with inspiration to pen a put down song that make him some hard cash. Think a blend of Lenny Kravitz and John Mayer.
The track was mixed at Muscle Shoals, and the folks down there know their stuff: great dynamics and no sign of the dreaded brick walling.
Ivory is the first track of his debut EP Three Black Roses (March 1st). Pre-order from iTunes.
