Halestorm would go on to win a Grammy award in 2013 for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance.

    Some of Ivory's latest successful collaborations include Stolen Rhodes’ new album Bend With The Wind, Baltimore-based rock band Silvertung’s single “Never Too Late” which charted on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart, and New Jersey-based pop singer Ces Picerno, who’s debut single “No Love” hit the Mediabase Top-40 charts.
