Ivan Neville (born August 19, 1959, New Orleans, Louisiana) is a multi-instrumentalist musician, singer, and songwriter. He is the son of Aaron Neville and nephew to members of the Neville Brothers.

He has released four solo albums and had a Top 40 Billboard hit with "Not Just Another Girl" from his first solo album If My Ancestors Could See Me Now. His second single "Falling Out of Love" charted on the Billboard Hot 100 and appeared on the soundtrack for the John Ritter film, Skin Deep in 1989. While it was never a huge charting song, Neville's "Why Cant I Fall In Love" has also become a sleeper fan-favorite, gaining fame from the 1990 Soundtrack to the Christian Slater film, "Pump Up the Volume".

Neville has played with and appeared on several Neville Brother records, as well as his fathers solo records. He contributed keyboards to two Rolling Stones albums, 1986s Dirty Work and 1994s Voodoo Lounge as well as being a member of Keith Richards solo band the X-Pensive Winos. In 1988, he toured with Richards after recording Talk is Cheap, and was the opening act for the shows, since If My Ancestors Could See Me Now was released.
