Ballarat’s Ebonivory sign to Wild Thing Presents

Melbourne-based touring, bookings and management company, Wild Thing Presents (together with its label arm, Wild Thing Records) who have been at the heart of Australia’s world renowned progressive and alternative rock scene, are thrilled to announce the signing of Ballarat five piece, Ebonivory to their management and bookings roster.

Ebonivory joins prestigious acts including Caligula’s Horse, Circles, The Ocean,
City Of Souls, AlithiA, James Norbert Ivanyi and many more as part of Wild Thing Presents’ incredible roster.

This world class 5-piece ensemble employs a unique distillation of alternative rock, progressive metal, post-hardcore and modern punk, delivering a breathtaking performance that unifies musicians, melomaniacs, and casual listeners alike. Playing music that is an engaging mosaic of raw emotion, complex rhythmic devices, and prismatic melody, Ebonivory have been honing their craft since 2014 under the leadership of prodigious composer, multi instrumentalist and lead vocalist, Charlie Powlett.

Powlett reflects on the signing, “We’re beyond excited to have signed on management with Eli Chamravi and Wild Thing Presents, who have been such nurturing and passionate proponents of progressive/alternative music in Australia and beyond for many years. From a humble beginning as high-school mates playing music together in regional Victoria, we can’t wait to take Ebonivory international with Wild Thing. We are working with the best team possible to propel our music to new heights that were previously inconceivable; Ebonivory is now without limitation.”

The group launched their first EP Ebonivory I in 2014 with 2015 seeing their debut LP The Only Constant which became a progressive Australian cult classic and in 2016 released their second EP Ebonivory II. The band have built a reputation as an act that consistently delivers music that grows in ambition and scale with each release.

Ebonivory first caught the ear of Wild Thing Presents Director Eli Chamravi over a year ago, who gave them an opportunity to perform at PROGFEST 2019 in Melbourne alongside international heavyweights The Ocean, Monuments, and Skyharbor. Chamravi comments “I was totally blown away by their performance at PROGFEST. This band comprises of five young brilliant musicians, who are writing and performing at an extremely high level, way beyond their years. I haven’t come across a young band as driven, professional, and musically talented as this in a long time. I’m excited to be part of their story, and have that story come to life within the Wild Thing family.”
