Ivytide - Indica Records - indica.mu



Ivytide is an indie pop band from Montreal, Canada. The story of Ivytide began as Nathan Gagné(vocals/guitar) developed a passion for making music in his teenage years, singing in his room with the door closed. He taught himself guitar and built upon what he loved from the artists he admired. After some convincing from one of his musician friends,Nathan decided to look into some local studios in the West Island.

Jamie Snytte (guitar) grew up playing in different bands, and developed an interest in the recording process, so much so that he opened up his own recording studio with a business partnerin 2016. After honing his craft by working with artists from many genres, Nathan happened to book a recording session at Jamie’s studio. Together they worked on Nathan’s first solo EP, and a year later Nathan returned for a follow-up project. For this project, they began working together on songwriting and composition, and found that they shared a mutual love for indie pop music, with hip-hop influences.

Following the release of this EP in 2017, Nathan was eager to perform the songs live with a band.With Jamie on guitar and a session drummer on board, they began to seek out a bassist. That’s when Kyle Ruggiero, Jamie’s long-time friend and former band mate, stepped in. After a few shows, the trio began working together on new music which led to the formation of Ivytide.

Combining their unique influences resulted in the production of bedroom pop songs with intricate, but catchy melodies, which float on top of well-thought-out instrumentation. Drawing inspiration from creative RnB artists like Frank Ocean,and indie artists such as Still Woozy, and Clairo, Ivytide developed their trademark indie pop sound.
