About

Ivory Tusk is Argentine singer-songwriter Ezequiel de Lima in “one-man band” mode, in which the songs are constructed and sustained by his voice and acoustic guitar. Inspired by artists such as The Tallest Man on Earth, Jose Gonzalez, Daniel Norgren and Shakey Graves, his style features extensive rhythmic finger-picking, alternate tunings and contemplative lyrics.

In March 2017, the first European tour began for the support of “Rising Lights”, an exploration travel supported by the Couchsurfing community, meeting and experiencing culture through local people. The extensive 5 month tour garnered several important milestones, such as opening for Grammy-nominee Thomas Dybdahl, 4 perfomances at the Live at Heart Showcase festival in Örebro (shows that were recommended by local newspaper and local tv), a performance at the Festa della Musica festival in Mendrisio, Switzerland and three Sofar Sounds concerts in Lund (SE), Oslo and Weimar.

Previously, he served as songwriter and lead guitarist for indie rock band Blak Lyons. Feeling alienated from the Argentinean scene and allured by his American folk influences,  he embarked on his first solo tour in January 2016, through the Southwest USA, playing shows in cities such as San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, San Diego and Los Angeles alongside talented local acts.

To finish a successful 3 month tour, there was a lengthy stop at Nashville. On one of the performance nights, he met Harrison Brougham who, in a movie-like situation, offered him free studio time at the Art Institute of Tennessee on a napkin. In one afternoon, they recorded 5 unreleased songs, in single live takes, with no edits and minimum overdubs. These intimate recordings were released in an EP called “Zephyr” on July 12th, 2016.

In September 2016, he was invited to open the live show by Los Monos de la China, which was recorded for a DVD release and participated on the Paraiso Festival. Following these performances, Ezequiel went into the studio to record his upcoming EP “Rising Lights”.
