ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The phrase ‘Ivory Tower’ has long been a metaphor for a place of refuge from the rest of the world. For singer/songwriter Mark Regula of the critically acclaimed modern vintage rock band Ivory Tower Project, this figurative ideal resonates deeply. The New York City-based band has functioned as a safe haven for its members to process and, ultimately, triumph over trying times.

The group’s greatest victory is its rousing and emotive latest album; ‘How Much More?’. It’s an album that bids farewell to a key collaborator, co-founder and dear friend while it also welcomes a new era as Ivory Tower Project gears up for more recordings and fresh creative partnerships.

Ivory Tower Project specializes in the majestic power rock of the 1970s and early 1980s. The songs burst with stirring vocal melodies, soaring vocal harmonies, polished musicianship, heartfelt lyrics, and imaginative arrangements. The band is part of a new breed of classic pop/rock purists preserving the traditions set forth by masters such as 1970s Styx, Queen, Foreigner and Boston.

The title of ITP’s latest CD; ‘How Much More?’, references the band’s own challenging journey.“In life, you sometimes find yourself waiting for a good thing to happen or a bad thing to end,” Mark Regula says. “It’s like ‘How much more can we take?’ That sentiment resonated with me and Johnny [former songwriting collaborator].” He continues: “The struggle can be tough, but it can also be important in that, if you don’t give up, you learn something.”

‘How Much More?’ posits a query and provides a comforting prescription of answers in song. The album manages to be soothing, seething, and stirring. The title track unfolds from a boldly vulnerable piano ballad with smoldering emotionality to an anthemic climax with burly classic rock guitars.

On "The Ides of March (Et tu Brute)" ITP manage to create their own niche of Shakespearian rock through melding classic texts with classic rock in the grand theatrical tradition of Queen. Guitarist Tony Novarro turns in the touching soft rock gem, “Please Tell Me,” a tribute to a long lost friend, original drummer Sal DiAngelo. The tracks “Ring Around Rosie” and “Way Too Late” are visceral and uplifting. “Ring Around Rosie” is a stately love song overflowing with amorous vibes and lush production touches. The invigorating “Way Too Late” is a hard driving pop-rock song with galloping guitars that evoke 1970s Styx, Billy Idol and Survivor.

Up next, Ivory Tower Project is working on new music. Reflecting back on ITP’s journey thus far, Regula says: “Music is what has kept us going. It’s been our light during the darkness of loss. This album is a memorial to those no longer here with us. I hope this music is as healing and cathartic for others as it has been for us. I hope it gives people a chance to escape their pain and fears, and feel hope.”

PRESS REVIEWS:

"The title track from the album opens with a piano accompanied by a dreamy guitar which leads to the vocals that build up the track before it ramps up with a 70s/80s classic pop/rock feel that ties in beautifully with the lyrics. 'How Much More?' is certainly a track that has been well produced with love for the sound that fans of ITP have come to love over the years that they have been producing some brilliant tracks. This track is certainly one that opens up the albums and sets you up for the rest of the tracks to enjoy." ~ by Karen Woodham of Blazing Minds [UK] - https://blazingminds.co.uk/ivory-tower-project-new-single/

"Ivory Tower Project’s style is a throwback to the expansive sound of bands like Styx and Kansas. The band recently released their album 'How Much More?', which is textured rock without the formulaic hooks. This is the kind of layered music meant for listening. And Tony Novarro gives us some killer guitar riffs." ~ Darcia Helle of SoundwavesReview.Com [USA] - http://soundwavesreview.com/ivory-tower-project-how-much-more-new-independent-rock/

"Elobeatlesforever (Elobf) recommends 'How Much More?' by Ivory Tower Project to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes." ~ Keith J. Sinclair of ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) - [UK] - http://elobeatlesforever.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/recommended-how-much-more-ivory-tower.html

"As far as albums having a genuine message behind the music, look no further because Ivory Tower Project’s: 'How Much More?' has it covered and then some...the 14 compositions emit a retro vibe complete with expertly crafted intros, instrumental solos and vocal work, while a tightly percussive bass and drum battery holds everything together." ~ Paul J Wolfle: Music Interview Magazine (New York) - https://musicinterviewmagazine.com/2017/05/10/ivory-tower-project-how-much-is-more/

"For Ivory Tower Project, How Much More? is so much more than the title of an album, it is the story of overcoming incredible adversity to pursue their passion for music. Their story is real. It is genuine. It is inspiring." ~ Heather Paige: ALL Magazine (New York) - https://www.joomag.com/magazine/mag/0218894001480434856?page=52

"The hit record that should have been" ~ Paul Anderson of The Entertainment Bank

ITP - "How Much More?"
If you are tired of what radio has been playing; the answer to that is to skip what the record labels and radio have been pushing and to look online at artists that are defying the norm of prefabricated beats and putting out music to suit the tastes of the general population by self recording their music. Ivory Tower Project's ‘How Much More?’ is just the kind of music that suits my tastes, having grown up in the era of Rock & Roll. This CD blends the best of rock and roll from the late 70's to the early 80's. The lyrics of "How Much More?" and “The Ides of March (Et tu Brute)” are haunting and Mark Regula does an excellent job of singing with much emotion to bring out the best of these songs and many others on this CD. Johnny Jace and Mark Regula's ability to write catchy lyrics is well represented in the songs on the CD. Regula's ability to write lyrics on his own is well shown in tracks 5 "Way Too Late" and 12 "You Can See It In My Eyes". The first five songs on the CD blew me away and are the best ones on the CD. However, the other writers and musicians also keep you interested. It is hard to like every song on a CD, but Tony Novarro's outstanding guitar playing makes sure you stay interested in the music and gives it a sound that many would call Classic Rock.

"How Much More?" ~ The title track from the forthcoming album opens with a piano accompanied by a dreamy guitar which leads to the vocals that build up the track before it ramps up with a 70s/80s classic pop/rock feel that ties in beautifully with the lyrics.How Much More? is certainly a track that has been well produced with love for the sound that fans of ITP have come to love over the years that they have been producing some brilliant tracks. This track is certainly one that opens up the albums and sets you up for the rest of the tracks to enjoy.
"My Name (DJ Distortion Remix)" ~ Wow there! How different is this remix to Ivory Tower Projects other tracks? It’s very different and for those that have heard the original mix, you’ll be very surprised by the direction the mix takes. The DJ Distortion Remix is a track that really wouldn’t sound out of place in a local night club. It could be easily mixed seamlessly into a DJ set with other tracks, it has that rave feel to it.

Ivory Tower Pr0ject - "How Much More?"
Ivory Tower Project is electronica at its finest – this is a band that knows well how to blend the various pop/rock/metal/alternative sensibilities of the 80s and come out with a product that makes the senses burst into life.
Whether you have heard their debut album “Red Hot” or not (but I do heartily recommend it!), you will easily fall in love with ITP’s music. Featuring Mark Regula on vocals, keyboards and guitars; Tony Nevarro on guitars and backing vocals; and Mike Carbone on drums, this is a group that knows how to rock, and rock hard!
“How Much More” starts the album off on a melancholy note, with a piano-heavy ballad that is lush and sad at the same time. Quality work!
“When Friends Become Lovers” and “Please Tell Me” are pretty sounding soft rockers in the vein of Jackson Browne.
“Woman of the Times” is full-throttle 80s synth and saxophone, loads of fun! The song has a sparkly, twinkly sound to it that is invigorating.
“Surf Song” is a perfect take on 60s surfer rock. Sounds right in line for what Dick Dale would have done.
So, if like me, you are a fan of electronic rock with that great 80s alternative sound, Ivory Tower Project is for you.
