His droll, often surreal, sometimes melancholy humor permeates all of his Ivor Cutler And Linda Hirst Privilege. His singing voice, a mordant baritone with perhaps the thickest Scottish burr ever captured on tape, is as Ivor Cutler And Linda Hirst Privilege as his idiosyncratic worldview. Born on January 15,Cutler grew up in a large middle-class family in Glasgow, Scotland.
Memories of his childhood, both sweetly funny and painful, figure prominently in much of his work. After a brief stint as a navigator in the Royal Air Force during World War II, Cutler moved to London and took a position with the Inner London Education Authority teaching music, dance, drama, and poetry to students ages seven to 11, a job he would hold until his retirement in Cutler has said that his experience as a teacher triggered his development as an artist, and indeed, there's a childlike playfulness in the tradition of Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll in much of Cutler's work, particularly in his hilariously surreal short stories.

Cutler began writing and recording songs and poems and quickly landed a recurring gig on the BBC Home Service, making 38 appearances on the weekly Monday Night at Home show between andmost often backed by his trademark droning Enrico Mantini The Maze.
