Ivan And Alyosha

Seattle Indie Folk Band Ivan And Alyosha Release Debut "All The Times We Had"

May 28, 2013 - I’m sure that every time Ivan and Alyosha are interviewed they have to talk about Russian Literature. Yes, they started out as a duo of Tim Wilson and Ryan Carbury, but the name came from the characters in The Brothers Karamazov.

The two met in 2007 and immediately got strong critical reaction from NPR and others for their first EP in 2009 "Verse the Chorus." The fact is the band knows how to write melodic, hooky, heartfelt even rousing songs and keep getting better at it. As Tim Wilson says about their new debut All the Times We Had, “We didn’t get it perfect, but I definitely think we got it right.”
