Paul Ivy started singing and performing at the early age of 5 years old when his family was living in Miami Beach, Fl. His grandfather was a bartender at a local pub and Paul would drop in and sing and dance on the bar and customers would toss money his way and so he was bitten at an early age that performing was something he loved to do. As he grew, he learned to copy songs from the Top 40 and would grow his repertoire.

His family moved to Los Angeles and he learned to play guitar at 12 and started to learn many folk and pop songs and would accompany himself and began to play recitals at his music school.

All through his high school years in the San Fernando Valley he was the guitarist for "Ma's Preserved Jug Band" and the group performed all along Hollywood Blvd in clubs and restaurants.

Paul moved back to upstate NY to complete his college years and became an active part of the upstate Woodstock music scene and played guitar in bands in all of the local bars and honky tonks throughout the area. Along with his musician friends they traveled up and down the East coast picking and grinning through the Appalachian Mountains and became a fan of gospel bluegrass.

Moving back west after college, Paul became a part of the Sundance Saloon night club scene in Calabasas, CA and would soon share the stage with names like Albert Lee, Billy and Rocky Burnette, Ron Coleman, Rosie Flores, Al Perkins, Gary Busey, Don Everly, Rick Danko, Terry Reid, and many more "drop ins" from road bands that were in town. He also was an actor with several seasons on "Murder, She Wrote," "Dallas," "Doogie Howser, MD" and appearing in films and national commercials, working with director Bob Rafelson and actress Nina Foch.

He was a regular in LA at Tanner's Coffee shop in Culver City, McCabe's Music, and Boulevard Music for years performing his own songs.

Co-writing with local LA artists Ron Coleman and Rocky Burnette, he got a cut on Rocky Burnette's "Tired of Towin' the Line" gold smash hit album. His tune "Angel In Chambray" was a stand out song on that album and garnered Paul a gold record. His tune "Streamliner" was a featured song on Rocky Burnette's "Wampus Cat" CD.

Moving to Las Vegas in early 2015 Paul continued to write and perform locally doing his songs. "Faded Memories" is a classic country song and was recorded at Ryan Whyte Maloney's studio in Vegas.

Paul recently moved to Nashville to continue his musical journey in Music City and can be seen regularly at The Bluebird Café, The Commodore Grille, Belcourt Taps, Douglas Corner Café, The Fillin Station, The Blue Bar, other venues and various charity events. He is a BMI writer and a member of NSAI and Clay Mills’ and Marty Dodson’s "Songtown".
