Although his first CD debuted while Ivan was in college, he became honest with himself and realized that it was only a step along the way and nothing more than a learning experience.
“I wanted to redefine my music and create something I could be proud of.”
After Ivan graduated from college, he moved to Nashville, TN in pursuit of his ideal sound. He came across local, independent ,producer Mike Odmark, who has worked with the likes of Aaron Roche, “Quote,” McClain, Tyler James, Aaron Beaumont, Evan Goodberry, Allie Peden, Aaron Wright, Brian Militana, Daniel Ellsworth, and others. After a month of virtually living in Sputnik Studios, Ivan finally came into his own. The result was a collection of catchy ballads that blended indie-folk and pop. Lush instrumentation and subtle arrangements accompany Ivan’s voice, giving a beautiful color and texture to the whole project.
Being a student of both science and religion, the fragile balance between the two has always intrigued him. This is evident in his songs in which he refuses to see the world from a Manichean point of view where everything is black and white. Rather, his songs are a blend of both influences, where poetry, vivid memories and subtle spirituality are married. The songs shine with honesty, humility, and simplicity, and are enhanced by Ivan’s truly beautiful and soft voice.
