The best kept secret in music



Aussie songstress has been flexing her vocal muscles for a while now, working with some of the countries most respected names, but the time has come for her to step forward with her own creation, a six track EP titled ‘For Your Ears Only’, released through Hydrofunk Records/MGM.

Born to Cambodian parents, Thavy's love of music began at a young age. Writing her first song at age 13, her formative years were anything but easy, but with music in her life, she somehow felt that things would always work out. Feeling strongly about music as a career path, she always managed to interweave it into her education, eventually completing a Bachelor of Arts in Music Business/Performance at RMIT University.

Over the years, Thavy has worked with a massive array of music icons from both Australia and abroad including the likes of Brian Campeau (Inertia), DeeJaye Katch (Resin Dogs /2Dogs/Hydrofunk), David Atkins (2Dogs/Wolfmother), Sereck (Def Wish Cast/Celsius), Resin Dogs, Def Wish Cast, Lance Willson, Mohamed Komba (Diafrix/Illusive Sounds), Avene, Royalston (Hospital/Med School), Greg Packer (Interphase/Good Looking), Ian Peres (Wolfmother), Alan Mawdsley, Hau Latukefu (Koolism), Abstract Rude (ATU), Bradford Ellis (The Nextmen), DJ JS-1 (Rock Steady Crew), Mark Walton (Fretless), Will Styles (DubRave), Scotty B (DigitalAssassin), MC Shureshock (The Shureshock Project/Klub Kids), Midnite Sleaze (Stealth/Vicious), Danny Merx, Miami Husslers (Housession/Nervous), Bernardo Garcia and many more, making her one of the country’s most diverse female vocalists and songwriters.

Having come through the other side of life experiences that would break many, Thavy has instead taken her background of hardship and used it to inspire some truly remarkable music that is continuing to evolve with each new session in the studio.

Choosing to spread her creative energy across the urban and electronic landscapes, Thavy is as equally comfortable on a soulful lounge rhythm as she is on a seductive dance anthem. While the young songstress is not easily comparable, her broad musical horizon takes influence from most genres across the modern musical spectrum.

‘For Your Ears Only’ EP captures Thavy at her best across 6 tracks which were brought to life with the help of David ‘Acosta’ Atkins (Resin Dogs, Wolfmother) on production duties.

Currently dividing her time between her job at a major music organisation and the studio, it seems that after many years in the making, Thavy’s musical career is starting to reach full bloom.

"The Recliner EP"

The Recliner EP is the culmination of years of collaboration and a deep appreciation of the eclectic. Recliner brings together the diverse talents of Danny Rhodes, Julius Seizure and Thavy Ear.

Danny Rhodes started out on the keys many moons ago playing classical piano in his early years. He has been jamming out with a blatant disregard for those who seek to pigeon hole creativity ever since. Danny has been a stalwart of the Brisbane music scene since the mid 90s, improvising alongside DJs, writing, producing and performing in his own right. He has collaborated with and appeared alongside Brisbane hip-hop heavyweights and has been a key contributor to a vibrant beat-maker culture in that town. Danny is a versatile instrumentalist, producer and the driving force behind the unique Recliner sound.

Julius Seizure is the oddball that grabs the microphone and lends his twisted take on things to the Recliner mix. Folks in Melbourne know him as that dude that crashes stages with live bands, spilling out tong-twisting crowd-rocking freestyles. Mr Seizure is best known as one half of Renovator's Dream but he has been involved with all sorts of great artists over the years. He strategically surrounds himself with excellent musicians and hopes he will be held guilty by association. So far it is working.

Thavy Ear has been making waves on the electronic and urban music fronts for some time now and the momentum is building. She is a prolific songwriter who draws an impressive array of musical influences. Lyrically, Thavy is candid and insightful. Vocally, she never ceases to astound. For Thavy music has been a source of joy and a welcome outlet for her immense creativity. Having previously worked with both artists Thavy had the vision of bringing them together and making Recliner happen. She had the foresight to sense that the distinct outlooks and musical influences of each member of the trio would converge nicely and forge something fresh.
