Album Notes
Ivan Rubenstein-Gillis has been playing music and writing songs since he was a child. To date he has recorded several hundred of his own songs (out of several thousand he has written). Over the past two decades Ivan has performed, produced and recorded his own and others’ material around the country, with some of the great sung and unsung rock, pop, jazz and folk musicians of our time. A cult figure on the New York scene for years, Ivan brings a deep musicality and intellectual approach to his music.

THE LION collects nine songs and seven instrumentals together to create a stunning introduction to Ivan's range as a singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist. Mixed by Tom Schick at The Wilco Loft and featuring spectacular cameos from legendary trombonist Roswell Rudd, pedal steel great Jon Graboff and others.
