Determined to see this experience as the beginning of her journey, she started the search for a new producer. This is how she met James Lowland and became part of Weird !s Good Music, where she found a home to express her singularity through the Ivy Mode persona. « IVY MODE is actually a combination of a pretty name with a beautiful meaning (IVY) and something I’m passionate about apart from singing: MODE, or in English ‘fashion’. It’s also sort of an alter ego. From the moment I step on the stage, I turn into ‘IVY MODE’ », explains the now 23-year-old songstress with Filipino roots. Involving herself with the entire process — from creating the music to supervising the artwork, styling and performing —Ivy Mode is a 360° genuine artist.
