Forks of Ivy "Crane Valley EP" out Jan. 9th

Forks of Ivy "Crane Valley EP" out Jan. 9th

Forks of Ivy are preparing to release their debut EP, "Crane Valley”, on January 9th. This is the new project fronted by Tim Tsurutani (aka Tam Tsu), formerly of Caw! Caw!, along with Duncan Reilly, Robin West, Aidan Kranz, and Alex Piazza.

Tim moved back to Chicago from Asheville last year, and quickly recruited this talented group of musicians. Below is demo of the EP’s title track that was released earlier this year. We have heard the final version and it is amazing how the song has progressed. The final version is much more flushed out, fuller, but even the bones below can be appreciated.

You can help Forks of Ivy celebrate the release on January 9th at Empty Bottle with Faintlife and New Drugs.
