Howard Ivans is the creative moniker of Ivan Howard, an alter ego that dances from the shadows with his synth-heavy take on modern pop. Informed by the sounds that shaped a genre, Ivans places lyrics back into the center of the process and plays with the identities and perspectives of his narrative. On his new album, Beautiful Tired Bodies, the artist from North Carolina, now living in Portland, shares the stories well travelled emotional landscapes, and he builds sounds that echo memories of the classic tracks of the heroes who have gone before.
Ivans has just emerged from the studio with his smooth funk flavored album and is about to be busy with the demands of road and prerelease work around a release that's sure to be in heavy radio rotation.
