IVY MAIRI |
Ivy Mairi is a heartfelt and exploratory singer-songwriter with a deep love for traditional folk music. Ivy Mairi grew up on Ward’s Island, which is a ten-minute ferry ride from downtown Toronto. As a teenager she would leaf through her mother’s books of traditional songs and – not knowing many of them – would make up her own melodies for the lyrics she found. With time, she began to write her own words as well. Since then, she has released three albums, collaborating with both Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) and Matt Bailey. Throughout her recordings, Ivy’s lyrics are quirky and personal, but have a universal quality that stays true to her love of classic song-craft – inspired equally by Neil Young, Lauryn Hill, and British folk singer Shirley Collins.
