Ivo Gleeman is a singer-songwriter from Rotterdam (the Netherlands). Since he was a young boy he has always been playing guitar and singing his self-penned songs.
After his college days young Ivo travelled the world. For years he drifted through Australia, New Zealand and the US. When he returned to Europe, he had to work for a living. He graduated at the SAE Audio Institute and worked as a sound engineer for various television shows and bands. But he still felt that undeniable urge to make music himself, so once more he got on the plane to chase his dream, this time in Los Angeles, California.
Inspired by the likes of Rory Gallagher, Kurt Cobain, Johnny Cash, Neil Young etc., Ivo developed a sound of his own. Supervised by US producers collective Superpop.Co, in recent years he has been working on a batch of great rock songs. This year his debut single and EP will be released through Superpop. Produced by production duo Wizardz of Oz (of Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears, Vanessa Hudgens and Krystal Meyers-fame) in collaboration with met Thom Russo (Audioslave, BabyFace, Michael Jackson), the EP will be released in Europe in partnership with CNR International (European release date: November 9, 2012).
Principally Ivo is a solo artist. In the past he grabbed the attention by his ‘one-man-band gigs, ‘simultaneously singing, playing guitar and playing the foot drums. However, now on his upcoming shows Ivo will hit the stage with a powerful three-piece.
