Ivan Beecroft

Songwriter/Musician

Sound Engineer/Producer

In the last two decades Ivan Beecroft has been a major contributor in Melbourne’s thriving underground music scene. He was very fortunate to be around when grunge took off in the 90s and when St Kilda’s underground music scene was at its peak, with artists such as Tex Perkins (Beasts of Bourbon,The Cruel Sea), Paul Hester (Crowded House), Sean Kelly (The Models) and many more having commercial success at the time. Living around so many of Melbourne’s creative musicians at that particular time left a lasting impression on Ivan as an artist and profoundly changed his approach to writing music. The personal insight into Melbourne’s underground scene obtained by associating with artists such as Sean Kelly has greatly inspired Ivan’s songwriting. Perspective gained from reading the works of John Steinbeck, George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, combined with the experience of feeling disenfranchised in his working life and identifying with being an outsider in the music industry, allow Ivan to imaginatively express the mood of the times.
