Event Details

We have a Grammy winning music producer and an Emmy winning sound mixer from NFL Films to talk with us about capturing great audio. You can’t miss this meeting!

David Ivory – Ivory Productions
Ivory has worked with some of music’s biggest names in a variety of genres and, in the process, encouraged some of their finest work. He has won two Grammy Awards and produced multiple Gold Records and one Triple Platinum Record

His passion for the overall development of his artists and their music remains the driving force of his approach. In the world of rock music, Ivory scored a major coup with the Philadelphia band Silvertide. Ivory arranged, produced and even co-wrote a song for their first release entitled American Excess, which was released on industry icon Clive Davis’s label J Records. Ivory also discovered and helped cultivate Pennsylvania native rockers Halestorm. His work with them resulted in the band signing a major label deal with Atlantic Records. Halestorm would go on to win a Grammy award in 2013 for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance.

Some of Ivory’s latest successful collaborations include Stolen Rhodes’ new album Bend With The Wind, Baltimore-based rock band Silvertung’s single “Never Too Late” which charted on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart, and New Jersey-based pop singer Ces Picerno, who’s debut single “No Love” hit the Mediabase Top-40 charts.
