Gwynedd Valley music producer David Ivory, 1999 Grammy nominee and the producer for The Roots, The Manatees, Halestorm, Patti Labelle and others, was elected president of the Philadelphia chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. That's right - the Grammy people!
At a swank soiree at Puck in Doylestown, whose several high profile attendees included R&B songwriter Bunny Sigler, arranger Lou DeLise and attorney Simon Rosen, Ivory spoke about his ambitious outreach plans to musical artists across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The first place he advised you to go is www.grammy365.com. You can get a pretty good idea what it's about even if you're not an Academy member.
The party continued downstairs on the stage at Puck with the monthly live showcase of Ivory's stable of recording artists, which this month included the local band I&I.
