Ivan campo

seven ancient wonders

Ivan Campo's story begins in the year 2000 when the trio met in Preston studying contemporary music at UCLAN. After graduating, the band started work on their first EP 'Clippings 2' and was self released in 2004. Drawing from influences that inspired their song writing (The Beatles, Marc Bolan), the band have been crafting their DIY sound of alternative folk-pop ever since and have amassed a shelf's worth of EPs.
