We first heard from Ivvas in September of this year, upon the release of his single “Hello.” With that track the artist introduced us to his unique take on the singer/songwriter sound. Ivvas (aka singer/songwriter RJM) is a solo acoustic act. He deals in intimate and personal Alt-Folk songs that delve deeply into the singer’s personal struggles and the ups and downs of his interpersonal relationships.
Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, RJM played in a number of bands before relocating to Austin Texas and reinventing himself as the singer and songwriter, Ivvas. The singer is now releasing a series of singles in preparation for his fourth solo album, which is currently in production. “Cursed” is his latest single. The song takes a hard look at the consequences of our actions. The singer analyzes the impact that our feelings have on the choices we make.
Cursed is a song about emotions and the lack of control that we have on them. This lack of control leads us to make decisions that we regret deeply in time.Ivvas
RJM lists artists like; Porcupine Tree, Tool, Opeth, and Ottmar Liebert as influences. His thoughtful, personal writing and emotional vocal performance bring to mind other Alt-Folk heroes like Elliott Smith and Jeff Buckley. Check out “Cursed” on the Deep Indie Dive playlist.
