Ivan Hartle is a musician from Vancouver, B.C. His style reflects a musical upbringing, as well as his experience playing college baseball in the southern United States. Eliciting vintage vibes, his genre floats between the blues, soul, and folk. Ivan draws inspiration from the classic soul sounds of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, to new age Blues and soul artists like Gary Clark Jr., John Mayer, Leon Bridges, and Amos Lee. Performing both as a band and solo, Ivan's memorable live act is characterized by his strong, soulful vocals and guitar playing.
Ivan burst onto the Vancouver music scene with gigs at The Biltmore, Fox Cabaret, Guilt & Co., Railway Club, The Belmont, Anza Club, Cafe Deux Soleils, and many others. He has also toured Western Canada in 2019, with shows in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver Island, and more. Some highlights include opening for Jon and Roy (Jan. 2020) and performing in MRG's Elevate Music Project in 2019.
