“If Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell ever were to have a love child, she would sound like IVA – sophisticated, heartfelt, authentic, and deeply moving.” – Tonemill blog
“Supremely talented” – Guitar World’s Acoustic Nation
IVA is an operatic singer-songwriter, a genre she mastered with “Run.” IVA has taken a hard left from her prior opera career to popular music, bringing her magnificent voice to her reflective lyrics. She has been heard on NPR and tastemaker radio, featured in Billboard and NBC’s Conan O’Brian Show, and tapped in “Who’s Next” by M Musicians Magazine.
On September 16th, IVA releases her new record “Nobody’s Woman.” The single, “Run”, is already making a breakthrough on Spotify at 57k streams and up to 10k monthly listeners. The five-song EP features IVA’s solo songwriting as well as a co-write with Nashville luminary Kim Richey. Run has already garnered stunning reviews with its streaming release.
“This is a wonderful new release from IVA that captures her at the height of her artistic powers. Featuring the breathtaking vocal acrobatics for which she has become known, Run is a powerful artistic reflection on…the emotional struggles… and the search for transcendence… hugely uplifting and inspirational.” – Alex Faulkner, The Faulkner Review of “Run”, Jan 27, 2022
“IVA captures an undeniable yearning spirit with “Run”. Quite beautifully, she updates psychedelic rock and dream pop in her own unique way… Sonically IVA draws from the stately presence of Nico and Beach House. Her voice proves to be the very heart and soul of the piece. Genre-wise… snippets of shoegaze, ambient, and electro enter into the equation giving it that living breathing aspect about it.” – Beachsloth Review of “Run”, Jan 25, 2022
“Run” video by French director Camille Natta captures IVA at her most intimate and real.
“Run” is produced by Amos Lee music director and multi instrumentalist Jaron Olevsky. The song was mixed by Nick Krill (The War on Drugs, Roar, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Generationals, The Dove and The Wolf, The Spinto Band.)
