Is an amazing American rock band, who got their musical style from Coldplay's slow, melodic piano to the cutting guitar riffs of U2. Listen to them and be totally blown away by the lyrics and the way Clayton sings the songs. Eargasm At It's Best! Highly recommended for anybody interested in melodic rock.

Members:
Clayton Stroope- vocals, Scott Jason- keyboard, Drew Cribley- guitar, vocals, Paul Niedermier- drums, percussion
Friend: Is this Thriving Ivory? The singer has a very interesting voice..

Me: They're incredible! Just keep listening, it gets better the more you listen.

Imho, Thriving Ivory is the best thing to ever hit the music scene along with The Fray and OneRepublic.
