WHITNEY MOWER along with her guitarist LUCAS GORHAM left Houston and flew out to Los Angeles to record her debut batch of songs last week.  She is recording with producer TOM BILLER (Warpaint, 30 Seconds to Mars) at his studio in the Silverlake area.

In just the first week, they’ve already started laying down the bones for the six (6) song debut EP, which will be released under the alias IVA DAWN.

The tracks are sounding AMAZING — some song titles include “Officer,” “Laugh Until I Cry” and “The Only One.”

The group was joined by drummer MATT CHAMBERLAIN, who was able to add his exceptional percussion work on five of the songs.  Nicknamed “the human loop” by Tori Amos, Matt was the drummer for Edie Brickell and New Bohemians and has performed drums-percussion work on hundreds of studio albums for artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Nickel Creek, Brandi Carlile, Sarah McLachlan, Eric Clapton, Dido, David Bowie and The Wallflowers.  He’s currently on tour with Soundgarden – check out Matt’s website and credits.
