Releasing her first EP “Good Time Girl” in 2008, “To be honest, I didn’t really know what I was doing, I just knew that I wanted to make music and I wanted the experience of being in the studio and bringing my songs to life”. The punk/ska-pop record ‘Good Time Girl’ did exactly that! “My first EP exposed me as a songwriter. It introduced me to musicians, to the process of creating a band, what it was to play live, and how to juggle not just music but the band’s schedule as well.”
Like most musicians, Ivy. The Pulse used this EP as a major learning experience from both the business and creative.
