Irish Singer-songwriter Ivan Nicolas started out as a drummer in a blues band and then progressed to guitar and piano, cutting his teeth with his mentor Philip Donnelly. Philip was a session musician for Johnny Cash and was a frequent luminary with Johnny Cash, The Everly Brothers, John Prine, Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith, Townes Van Zandt, Donovan, and many others on the Nashville circuit and also wrote songs for John Prine. During Ivan’s time touring with Philip and being mentored by him, he learned the craft of performance and what it was to write something real and something special.

After honing his craft, Ivan decided to move to Kerry, where he wrote his first song a few years previous, to live on the side of a mountain for a year in solitude working on writing his debut album. Living with such open space around him helped sculpt his personal process of loss and love on many levels. Weaving songs into a great tapestry drawing from personal experiences such as the loss of a friend and intimate trials and tribulations of human relationships.

His debut album was recorded in Grouse Lodge studios with acclaimed producer Dani Castelar (Paolo Nutini, REM, Michael Jackson). Ivan released his first single ‘For The Weekend’ in April 2017.
