A coin toss led to her cross-country move to Nashville in 2013, and Ira hasn't slowed down since. Taking minimal breaks to record, Ira has been touring solo nonstop for the past three years, performing on stages across the US, the UK, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. She has found a home in the folk community, and regularly shares her music in the home concert environment, where she blends storytelling into her musical performance.
After recording and releasing her first albums in 2014 and 2016, Ira spent nearly six months living in a 1988 VW camper van she named 'Ruby' as she travelled the U.S. The songs inspired from that adventure led to her most recent album (The Closest Thing to Home
). Though she had to part ways with Ruby after the first tour, recently Ira has been able to reunite with her beloved van more permanently thanks to some help from her friends at a company called GoWesty. Ira plans to continue wandering the globe, writing, and enjoying “van life” in the coming years.
