Ivan & Alyosha
Ivan & Alyosha was formed by Tim Wilson and Ryan Carbary in 2007. The two met while working on other projects and soon found themselves working exclusively with each other. Together they decided to go into the studio to record. Their first release was an extended play, “The Verse, the Chorus,” produced by Eli Thomson in Los Angeles, California. At the time the band did not have a name, but during a discussion about the nameless project Eli Thompson suggested “Ivan and Alyosha” from the ‘Brothers Karamazov’. The two original members were fans of the genre and the name stuck.
Ivan & Alyosha released their debut album “All The Times We Had” as a follow up to “Fathers Be Kind.” The EP won the band recognition and praise from the likes of American Songwriter, Relix (On The Verge Artist), Paste, and NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Tiny Desk” series. The band’s forthcoming debut was recorded at Avast! in Seattle, co-produced by Chad Copelin and mixed by Jesse Lauter (The Low Anthem, Bobby Long), who brought out the warmth in the studio recordings. All The Times We Had has a vast emotional sweep, channeling the struggle between the band’s faith in their music and life on the road into a visceral and vulnerable statement.
