About Ivan Swangren Trio
Formed in October 2007, the Ivan Swangren Trio is one of the most exciting musical acts to come out of the Ephrata area in a very long time. With their funk-inspired rhythms and soaring melodies, this act is sure to make a significant impact on the mostly hardcore music scene locally. Their leader, Ivan Swangren, was formerly a strictly solo artist before forming the trio with Jon Covert on bass guitar, and Drew Kramer on drums. For almost five months, the Trio has played in numerous venues, such as the Senorita Burrita Café in Lancaster PA, and the Chameleon Club right across the street. They have an EP that showcases their many styles and talents, such as the funky “Summer Rain” and ringing “Crash Into the World”. The main topic of this record is the transition from child-to-adult, and the growing pains that go along with it. Self-produced and self-financed, it is true Ivan Swangren Trio, beginning to end.
