Ivan Mc Cabe hails from a small town in Co Cavan, Ireland. No-body can say this musician is any one style of music as influences can range anywhere from Stevie Wonder to Tool, or Pearl Jam to One Minute Silence. Although a rock music core is where it all stems from, to go into greater detail would demand a synopsis of each individual song.
From various stints in different cover bands and performing solo concerts, Ivan is definitely an experienced musician with a lot to offer.
His most recent creation, EP "Urinal Cakes" was just released in August 2012 and its launch was met with smiles and good times.
With determination and vigor, this man plans to take the musical world by storm and turn the conventional, stylized interpretation of music on its head. Thus proving there are no limitations when it comes to infusing some very core elements of modern music within each other and allowing the freedom of expression to flow.
With elements of rock, funk, metal, indie, and grunge clearly establishing itself on the front line of EP Urinal Cakes, what’s to follow can only be a deeper reflection of the more we think we know the less we can be sure of.
From the tender age of 12yrs Ivan expressed a strong connection with song writing as a means of expression. As the years progressed and the intensity for creating grew, solace was found in philosophical and spiritual writings. This is undoubtedly made clear in his lyrical approach. From that philosophical, political and spiritual stand point, Ivan offers an alternative route to subject matter in songs. He refreshes how words can be shaped to express an intent to unbiasedly care about the world in which we live and the inhabitants that share it.
Currently in the works is his debut album “Adam and Eve’s Inbred”. Some of the songs have been previewed at one time or another and again an aggressive but compassionate vibe emanates clearly in sometimes subtle and sometimes direct manners.
Definitely one to watch for the future as this man’s commitment and fire for radical social change is only quenched through the powerful medium of music. A medium we all share.
