Wellington-based songstress/guitarist Iva Lamkum presents her 2012 debut album ‘Black Eagle’ featuring lead single ‘Doo Bop’ – a collaboration with local award winning and acclaimed producer P Money.
‘Black Eagle’ consists of a series of deeply personally, yet universally relatable mediations on family, hard-work, internal conflict, the loved and the loveless. Drawing stylistically on elements of roots reggae, folk, rock, funk, indie and beyond, the album repositions Iva, an artist often viewed under a neo soul light, within a borderless musical world.
Recently named one of the thirteen top global divas by MTV Iggy (US), through her solo work and studio/live collaborations with Andrew Spraggon's Sola Rosa band, Iva has enjoyed critical support here and abroad, including a placement on influential music blog RCRD LBL.
