Born and raised in Vancouver, B.C., Ivan Hartle is a musician who molds a vintage sonic aesthetic with modern elements. Pivoting from a successful US college baseball career into music, he’s been featured as a popular and emerging artist by DailyHive Canada. His bluesy, soul singer-songwriter stylings are drawn from the classic sounds of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, to new age artists like John Mayer, Amos Lee, and Leon Bridges. Ivan’s memorable live act is flush with melodic grooves and strong, soulful vocals.


Performing in notable festivals like Rifflandia, Shipyards, Surrey Fusion, Music BC’s ‘Let’s Hear It’ and NXNE, Ivan’s also toured most of Canada (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto + more), opened for artists like Jon and Roy and the Grammy award winning Cedric Burnside, and headlined the McPherson Theatre in Victoria in 2022. In his hometown of Vancouver, BC, he has played noteworthy venues like The Biltmore, Imperial, Cobalt, Guilt and Co., and Fox Cabaret.

Alongside CBC ('Feelin' Like', ‘You Got Me’, ‘More to Find’) and the Netherlands' national NPO radio 2 (‘You Got Me’) airplay, Ivan also has over 1.8 million streams on Spotify (850k+ for ‘Feelin’ Like’, 300k+ for ‘Love in the Lead’), including various editorial placements (Blues Roots, Retro Soul, Mellow Morning + more). With media coverage from the likes of the aforementioned DailyHive Canada, Global News Canada, The Province (B.C.), and Notion, he's poised for continued success following the release of his album ‘A Place to Stay’ on December 15th, 2023. The album includes ‘Love in the Lead’, dubbed a standout single by Clash Magazine.
