The band continues with a busy schedule playing other Colorado venues. People who hear the band for the first time are often pleasantly surprised at their music and how different it is. The band’s appeal is universal - people of all age groups and musical tastes enjoy their music. This kind of reaction confirms that this is a band to watch. Their music uniformly receives descriptions such as “moving,” “lyrical,” “exceptional”, and of course “unique.” Ivory Drive was started in Boulder, Colorado in the fall of 2007, and included: Van Wampler on keyboards and vocals, Wes Barton on drums, Sean Whissen on bass, and Geoff Boux on saxophone.
They began playing in local venues, and recorded an EP in the spring of 2008. In the fall of 2008 trumpet player Colton Crandell joined the band. The band’s highly anticipated full-length debut album, From This Far, propels its listeners through high energy, danceable tunes punctuated by moments of brooding sentiment. Recorded at Wave Stable Studios in Aurora, CO, and mastered at Airshow Mastering in Boulder, CO, From This Far’s 13 original tracks culminate two years of songwriting, recording, and production.
