Mr. Ivy was born and raised in the heart of the Mississippi Delta in the town of Moorhead, MS. Mr. Ivy grew up listening, learning, living and singing the blues. He idolized such artists as B.B. King, Bobby Rush, and Marvin Sease wishing he could one day become a blues singer himself. Born Chris Ivy he was determined to show that through his own individuality as well as creativity he was just as good as the greatest.
As fate would have it, Mr. Ivy met with songwriter and producer Trevell Williams and organized H.B. Programs in June 2008. Since this time Mr. Ivy has performed with artists Nathaniel Kimble, Mississippi Slim, Jessie Clay, Sweet Angel, and has opened for T.K. Soul. Mr. Ivy has also headlined several shows of his own, throughout the Mississippi and Louisiana areas.
Mr. Ivy has completed his first album entitled “Just Doing Me”, of which his songs Turn Me On, Slow Dance, Turn Road and The Mailman has been repeatedly played on several radio stations throughout the Mississippi Delta. Being seen and heard throughout the Delta has lead Mr. Ivy a starring role as a powerful performer on The Young Guns of Southern Soul Tour. The Tour is a very Romantic and Heart Pounding Tour that features other artists such as Columbus Toy, LJ Echols and Mr. Ivy and is being booked daily throughout the entire south.
