“Gloom is my passionate heart-aching love story,” says Crump. “This record holds all of the emotions I felt while going through the worst break up of my life. At the time, I had this dreary cloud resting over my head and couldn’t snap myself out of my melancholy state. God and music were my only outlets, so I poured my heart and soul into about fifty songs and picked five. This EP has helped me overcome many weaknesses in my life, and I can only pray that it helps mend another broken heart out there.”
The Ivory also has a music video for the single, “I’m a Mess.” The video, directed by Adam Ferguson, and featuring Sierra Kay of VERSA (formerly VersaEmerge), can be viewed below.
