A childhood passed in the theatre amongst actors, musicians and craftsmen gave Ivan Tirtiaux his first taste of music. Sung in his deep, supple voice in his native french he has created a unique kind of ‘folk nouveau’ drawing equally on chanson française, folk, blues and latin music. Both chiselled and organic, poetic and precise, a rich spectrum of experience is refracted through his sparse narratives and refined arrangements carried by captivating musicians.
