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 burst onto the Vancouver music scene with gigs at The Biltmore, Fox Cabaret, Guilt & Co., Railway Club, The Belmont, Anza Club, Cafe Deux Soleils, and many others.
