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 fluid genre has elements of blues, soul, jazz and folk. Ivan draws inspiration from the classic soul sounds of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, to new age 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 Imperial, Biltmore, Fox Cabaret, Guilt & Co., Railway Club, The Belmont, Anza Club, and many others. He's also toured Western Canada, with shows in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver Island, and more.
