Ivan and Alyosha Live in Studio

Yesterday afternoon, I had the pleasure of sitting in on Ivan and Alyosha live in studio. Originally from Seattle, Washington,  Ivan and Alyosha were greeted by the beautiful Providence sun their first time in this city. Tim Wilson, Ryan Carbary, Tim Kim, and Pete Wilson allowed WBRU listeners to hear their folk-pop/indie rock sound during their acoustic performances of “Don’t Wanna Die Anymore,” “Easy to Love,” and “The Fold.”

Why name the band “Ivan and Alyosha?”

I&A: The name comes two characters from a Russian novel who are brothers. One’s a monk and the other is an atheist. And we really liked the name.

I&A discussed that the name plays a role in the music in that the music they write is centered around the themes of spirituality, relationships, family, life, questions, and doubts.

How did the band come together?

I&A: Ryan and I (Tim Wilson), had been writing and working together for a couple of years, and later my brother Pete and Tim Kim who we went to high school with joined.

Where are some of your favorite places to play?

I&A: In Montana, there are some great people there. And the Bowery!

What are y’all up to, any big news?
