Thriving Ivory — "Angels On The Moon "
"Angels On the Moon" is the current single from this 12-song self-titled album by Thriving Ivory.
Lead singer Clayton Stroope and piano player/songwriter Scott Jason are the heart and soul of the band. They met while they were both students at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
In reference to how the band formed, Scott Jason says, “As soon as I heard Clayton sing, that was pretty much it — let’s form a band. Scott’s songs have this wonderful lyrical depth to them and are very accessible. It is so easy to put my vocal emotions into them.”

Gavin Rossdale – WANDERlust
WANDERlust is the first solo album by Gavin Rossdale, formally of Bush. He describes the album as such, “The wanderlust I’m talking about isn’t that desire to travel and see the world. It’s my overwhelming desire to get out and play music for people. I feel like a racehorse that’s been stuck in the stables a bit too long. The doors are locked and no one can find the key — worse I’m not sure who’s looking for it.”
Recently, Rossdale performed for AOL Sessions, and you can view those streams right here:
- “Forever You May Run”
- “The Trouble I’m In”
- “Love Remains the Same”
- " Letting the Cables Sleep"
