Album Notes
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 music for those who love the sound of Classic Rock and Power Pop. Ivory Tower Project (ITP) was founded by NY veteran songwriters: Johnny Jace and Mark Regula.

NYC guitarist: Tony Novarro was soon recruited, thus 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 Project.

Featured Studio Musicians:
Richie Cannata: sax - (formerly with BILLY JOEL)
Ivan Elias: bass - (formerly with PATTY SMYTH & SCANDAL)

ITP signed with Guerrilla Records and released a four-song EP entitled: "Red Hot," which has received rave reviews and airplay on over 570 radio stations in 32 countries worldwide.

Now Guerrilla Records is happy to announce the re-release of “RED HOT” as a 10 track CD album. The album will include the 4 tracks that was on the original EP, but it will also include an additional 5 tracks that have been recorded and written by the original band members. This release has been professionally mastered and duplicated with new front and back cover art and musician credits in the liner notes.

A special track has been included of a solo recording of the group’s original drummer: Sal DiAngelo – who died a few months after the band's first recording session. Also included is a candid radio interview with the group’s co-founder: Mark Regula. These 2 tracks are only available on the CD and will not be available on the digital album for download.

Ivory Tower Project Is one of those bands that are far and few between. The Sound is a Full On, Old School Classic Rock Style, with a dash of Pop thrown in for good measure. This Album not only delivers a punch, but stands up in this modern Music era.
Their CD "Red Hot" has to be the best this reviewer has heard in a good many years. Mark Regula has such a perfect voice for these songs.
He pushes the limits with Rock songs like My Name, Burning, Gotcha, and Way Too Late, yet can hold your heart in his hands, with songs like You Can See It In My Eyes, Dreamer, I Can't tell Him (Her) and I think I fell In Love With You.
Mark's expertise shines throughout this album. These tracks were chosen with the intention of showcasing Mark Regula's lead vocals and Tony Nevarro's back-up vocals. They are brought to life, literally, by the sheer talent and range of these two outstanding Artists. With Mike Carbone on Drums there is no way this Band can miss the mark.
This Album "Red Hot" has it all. Hard hitting Rock songs, done in an Old School fashion. You remember that right? Back when you could hear the Lead Singer crystal clear. But it also has a softer side. Don't waste your money on rock you can't hear. Ivory Tower Project has the perfect balance. Guitar lead, drum induced, well thought out lyrics and a dam fine vocal section.
This is a "must have" for your Rock collection. Stop by and have a listen today www.IvoryTowerProject.com . It is available at CDBaby and Amazon.com and Super D as well.

RED HOT - Ivory Tower Project
The hit record that should have been -- what an interesting situation. The Ivory Tower Project is like a classic musical ensemble playing the best of music from an era with all the accuracy of the recording, and playing styles of that period, but again, good music is timeless -- what's good once is always good. In fact, in today's world where everything sounds canned and a lot of what they call "music" is mostly computer generated sounds, it's a pleasure to hear this band. It's like discovering an industry secret that is finally revealed, and available for public consumption.

The Ivory Tower Project is comprised of Mark Regula (vocals, keyboards, guitar), Tony Novarro (guitars, back vocals), and Fernando Menendez (drums). ITP is dedicated to presenting the styles of the 70s, and 80s, and the good part is, they're not a covers band!

The arrangements on "Red Hot" are reminiscent of INXS, Tears for Fears, and The Cure. The songs have the right sound for all fans of the great music of the 80s, and in fact, I found myself singing along to, "My Name" almost immediately, as it is a very catchy song. The big Phil Collins drum sound is on the money with the big tom toms on “Guilty,” as are the electric guitars, and the synth doubling with electric grand piano (Toto), as well as the synthesizer bass. Mark Regula gets a sound that reminds me of Tears for Fears.

The sax is a nice surprise on, “You Can See it In My Eyes”, and the synth strings blend well with the bell tone electric Rhodes piano. A female vocalist adds a nice touch to “Can’t Tell Him (Her),” along with some nice acoustic guitar, and hand percussion sounds. There is no set in stone formula that ITP follows; they make use of the wide range of colors and styles to create songs that embody the best elements of the the 70s and 80s, and they do it very well. There’s nothing wrong with looking back, it reminds us how far we've come (or regressed), and how much the music industry has lost. Ivory Tower Project should be recognized for honoring the past by creative reflection, and not just imitation. This is a great work by a great band, and it's refreshing. I'd really like to hear their next album.

Ivory Tower Project
Mark Regula (vocals, keyboards, guitars), Tony Navarro (guitars) and Fernando Menendez (drums) are back with Ivory Tower Project and this is their debut full-length album. They released a 4-track EP in 2001and what they offer is 80s Pomp/AOR that takes you back when bands like Cannata, Asia, Arrows, Bystander and Russ Ballard was played in the stereo. Yes, the 4 first tracks on Red Hot is stunning Pomp/AOR songs that really shows how good this band is. The songs don’t hold the same quality throughout the whole album and that’s a shame because this could have been a classic album. There’s also a Radio interview were Mark tells about Ivory Tower Project. But lets talk about the fantastic tracks that starts this album. My Name is a pure Pomp-rocker with classic 80s keyboards and reminds of Stonebolt meets Cannata, brilliant song with great drum sound. Burning could have come from one of Russ Ballards two first classic AOR album. Yes, this is a awesome songs with a fantastic chorus with classy harmonies.

great stuff!!
Thanks to melodic.net, where I read the review about this great piece of music!
This CD is like a little timemachine which takes you back on a journey to the Eighties.
The first four songs are just pure AOR heaven, brilliant stuff. The rest doesn\'t hold the same fantastic level, but still good stuff, all in all a big recommendation!
I hope to hear more from the band in the future!
