If you're reading this than you are privy to the next step of my career journey. I officially am launching a cd of my own original works entitled "Simply Solo."
It's not a huge project but it is the first time that I am doing something completely different than what most of my friends and fans have seen.

It's not blues, it's not soul  but a little bit of everything and it's a personal goal that I feel I'm achieving.

"Simply Solo," will soon be available online so you can have a listen wherever you go. I hope you can enjoy and listen to the my personal "carbon print" on this musical journey!


Happy New year!!!! 

Hello present and future  friends, fans and family, I'm super excited to officially be starting a website with tons of Ivy Ford info, merch and media! Being new at this particular venture I hope I'm able to keep up with the latest new!

Thanks #KeepCalmBluesOn #BluesKitten
