The background of Ivan Hartle is found in remnants throughout his expressive sound. Being raised around a heavy stream of classic and influential music, Hartle moved to the southern part of the United States, which we are sure further developed his art. Now based in Vancouver, he is letting those influences shine with his latest release “Ain’t My Style”.
This one gave us all the feels.
With just a gentle blues sway, “Ain’t My Style” develops into a intimately fantastic introduction to the rising songwriter’s sound. The Canadian troubadour has released his debut EP Until Now, which is definitely worth a listen or two. His vocals alone are incredibly clear and expressive, but his guitar play is what really drew us to him. If you like acts like Gary Clark Jr. and older John Mayer, then keep your ear out for more from Ivan Hartle.
