A Little About Nick

Nick’s musical influences have been diverse. Being raised in a bi-cultural environment exposed him to the genre of Traditional Ukrainian Folk Songs, with its alluring minor modes and sweet melodies. Additionally, his intellect was stimulated and his spirit moved by the beautiful liturgy emanating from the Orthodox Church.

Through the years his musical pursuits have taken him to performing “Rock and Roll”, Gospel, Folk, and Bluegrass. Today his contemporary style of Folk Music is an amalgam of all these musical types, and yet distinct and individualized in its presentation. His songs paint a landscape of the multiple dimensions of the human condition as well as expressing empathy with its commonality.

Nick has been musically active for over 30 years, and his songs reflect the peaks and valleys, and everything in between, along life’s journey. Also, his work as a psychotherapist interacts with that artist within, often adding to the counseling repertoire and enriching the moment.

"Nick Ivanovich is in tune with the human melody and understands the rhythms and dissonance that are present in our milieu. Each song is a journey worth traveling, and his turns of phrase will become trusted friends. "
— Danny Wright
"Nick Ivanovich is an amazing folk guitar player who has skillfully mastered his way through contemporary folk music with a touch of rock. Each track on Reflecting offers a crisp and creative musical drive with a soft sound of heartfelt lyrics. My favorite tracks on the album include Reflecting, Heard your Voice and Along the River’s Edge. If you are looking for a pleasing sound that will continuously remind you of warm spring colors thriving through a harsh winter, then this is the album for you. I highly recommend Reflecting for any fan of folk music or Nick Ivanovich."
— Kensley Lewis
"Nick combines familiar imagery with heavy themes such as chaos, love and redemption to emphasize it is often the simple moments in life that most alter us. The guitars soothe like a lullaby, sway the listener with gentle picking to leave the listener sometimes surprised by the layered punches of intuitive emotion rising from each song. At times a sound so light you can’t help but roll into the easy going atmosphere reminiscent of a circle of friends parlaying on the beach, met with an intensity of lyric and thought that singles out the struggle if accepting human experience. Moments of gratitude and heart break coalesce the soft intensity to represent any number of soulful moments the listener may know in life. Perhaps finding a place where real life meets the dreams we have for it."
