Having grown up in St Patrick’s Cathedral Choir, Ivan has been cocooned in music since he was eight, inspired by the juxtaposition of listening to Paul Simon and Queen on the way to school and then singing Allegri’s Miserere in the evening. Fast forward 12 years and Ivan St John prepares to release his debut LP, Up To Snuff.
