Ivy brings a simple yet captivating performance with her guitar and vocals. She tells a story with each song, painting a vivid picture of love and adventures experienced during her many years of living a nomadic life while travelling the globe. Her presence captures peopleâ€™s attention through her honest approach to life as well as music.
Ivy picked up the guitar a few years ago while travelling as she learned from other travellers who happily shared their skills and knowledge of music with her. As she continued to travel, learn and observe the world around her she continued to write ideas and stories, which eventually turned into the songs we hear today.
Ivy is also the creator of Naked Soul Kitchen which is a platform for her spiritual work and giving back to others. Through her own journey of self discovery and growth, Ivy saw that there is a massive need for people to undo years and years of programming in order to tap into their true power, their true strength and to shine their light. This is part of the purpose of Naked Soul Kitchen... â€œShine Your Light!â€-says Ivy. As she unashamedly shares her love and light with the world and encourages others to do the same. She holds regular events for women where she uses ancient meditation and healing techniques employing sound frequency to help people heal and release all that no longer serves them.

She went to University there and graduating with a High Honors Bachelors Degree in Nutrition, Exercise Science and Health Fitness. She worked as a Personal Trainer for many years and followed a healthy lifestyle, helping others do the same.

Ivy has always been a seeker, an explorer and an adventurous soul and most of her travels throughout the years were done solo, which highly contributes to her understanding of the self and the growth which she has undergone during that time.
