Dear Friends,

It’s here! The music video for “Immense Tenderness” is up on YouTube (don’t forget to subscribe)! Director William DeJessa created a unique old world feel shooting the video on a 1940s era Grafex camera. I’m so grateful to have worked with William and his team. He created the perfect mood for this video.Come and follow us on this journey, with new music and tour dates on the way along with stories about the filming of the video and album. Follow IVA on Spotify and subscribe to my YouTube channel. We’d love to have your comments on Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube!

AND … Traitor is now available for purchase! If you would like a signed CD, contact OR order online. They are $10 plus shipping, and I will be happy to sign them for you.Thank you to all the musicians who worked on this song: producer Jaron Olevsky, Trey Pollard of Spacebomb for his vocal and string arrangements, Patrick Dillett for his mixing, and Gerry Putnam at Cedarhouse for his mastering on this track. And special thanks to my bandmates Sam Nobles on the bass, Matt Scarano on drums, and Rittenhouse Soundwork‘s Jim Hamilton on percussion/bells, who also provided his beautiful studio for our band recordings.

If you are in Philly over the holidays, come hear us live on Thursday December 27th at 8pm at Bourbon & Branch (705 N 2nd Street)! And if you are in New York and know students looking for a vocal, piano, or songwriting coach, I am now teaching at the New School and the Brooklyn Music School
