Thursday, November 1 – Ilvekyo:
ilvekyo; pronounced ill-veck-yo was founded in 2011 by Mason Quesnel when he went into studio to record songs with long-time friend Eric Eggleston of Johnny Hall Productions. Mason tracked most of the instruments himself and with the help of some friends completed his first album, and uploaded a single called “The Good” to YouTube. Since then, ilvekyo has seen several line-up changes and sounds but one thing remains and will always remain true; the songs are honest, fun and full of life and there will always be Mason.
