Ignacio “Iggy” Elisavetsky was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His first recording gig was at age 15 as a guitar player for the seven piece band reminiscent of Edgard Winter White Trash’ “Caballo Vapor.”

Iggy moved to the US and later joined Alejandro Lerner’s Band to go on their South American Tour.

After the tour, he traveled to New York to co-produce and play on Alejandro Lerner’s “Algo que decir” album. Iggy had the chance later to work with seasoned producer and engineer Humberto Gatica on another of Lerner’s project “Amor Infinito.”

Thanks to the early friendship with Alejandro Lerner, both setup their home base and a recording studio in Los Angeles.

Iggy and Alejandro started a song writing team and continued working on the next Lerner’s album (“Buen Viaje”) that Iggy played, recorded and mixed. This project earned a Grammy nomination for Alejandro at the Latin Grammy’s. The Album went “gold” and was a major hit in Latin America.

Iggy also wrote the music for multiple short films directed by Carl Hansen for the Los Angeles 48 Hours Film Festival. These films won multiple awards.

Iggy continued writing music with Daniel Hamuy for a Multimedia Project in Spain for the Metro Museum that was built on an abandoned metro station from the early 1900’s that was completely restored to its glory days.

Iggy contributed playing and mixing on multiple Fabian’s Jolivet projects like “The Congo Square #1 and #2”, “Maya”, “The Electroroots”, Paul Nicoll two cd projects and working with Andres Calamaro on multiple songs.

After a few CD projects and touring with Alejandro, Iggy became friends with composer and arranger Eduardo Del Barrio (Earth Wind and Fire, Herb Alpert, Stan Getz, Caldera, Dianne Reeves) helping Eduardo with Engineering and music software support.

The friendship resulted in Iggy recording for Herb Alpert 2013 “Steppin’ Out” CD project that won him a Grammy for “Best Pop Instrumental” category.
