1982 – present (41 years)
New York, United States
Webster's definition of 'ivory tower' is: a figurative place of mental withdrawal from reality. The phrase is used as a symbol of escapism. Independent recording artists: Ivory Tower Project is a new breed of 'old school' rockers. New, original music for those who love the sound of Classic Pop/Rock/R&B inspired by the great artists of the 1970s and 80s. Ivory Tower Project (also known as: ITP) was founded in 1982 by NY veteran songwriters: Johnny Jace and Mark Regula. New York City veteran guitarist: Tony Novarro was soon recruited, and Novarro and Regula formed the core of ITP. As band members left, they were replaced by the NY Metro area's finest studio musicians that transcended Ivory Tower from being a band into a studio Project.
ITP signed with independent label; Guerrilla Records-NY and released their debut CD entitled: "Red Hot'. In 2016 released their sophomore CD: 'How Much More?' and in 2019; releasing the digital EP: 'ITP-III all three of which have received rave reviews and airplay on over 700 radio stations in 37 countries worldwide.
