Ionie is a rare blend of bold and vulnerable, spinning a wry, honest soul-pop while drawing on her roots in jazz and rock.
The title of ionie’s forthcoming album, IMHO, says it all. Ionie’s tell-all, no B.S. approach to life plays out in every one of her soulful, pop hook-driven songs. A “recovering New Yorker,” ionie moved back to her home state of California after 9 years in New York, and now lives in LA. Though you can’t tell by looking at her, ionie’s childhood was steeped in Mexican culture, her mom hailing from Mexico City. Though her childhood home was always filled with music and art, ionie took refuge in songwriting during the darker days of her father’s addiction. Today she continues to take and make her daily dose of music as medicine.
