After releasing his solo debut "99¢ Dreams" on his own in September 2007, opening for Mae as his debut performance and CD release, Ivins formed The Jim Ivins Band with his brother Jack (drums), and friends Bobby Gary (bass), and Drew Martin (guitar). Ever since, the band have been making a name for themselves, scoring rave reviews from publications like Absolutepunk.net and The Aquarian and sharing the stage with national acts like Rooney, Parachute, Carolina Liar, The Rocket Summer, Cracker, The Ataris, Mae, Carbon Leaf, Pat McGee Band and Every Avenue. They've spent time in the studio with top names like Grammy winners John Seymour (Santana, U2, Dave Matthews Band) and Michael Congdon (Chris Brown), Mark Santangelo (The Weeknd, Neon Trees, Neil Diamond) and The Early November's Ace Enders, as well as showcasing at top festivals like the 2013 SXSW Music Festival and 2009 Miami Music Festival.
