Ivory Circle is an alternative band from Denver, Colorado, started by singer-songwriter Connie Hong and producer/bassist Chris Beeble. Mixing heartfelt lyrics, lush instrumentation, and Hong’s uniquely expressive vocal style, Ivory Circle draws comparisons to artists like Florence and the Machine, Adele, and Kimbra.  Now joined by Rob Spradling (drums), Sean Palmer (guitar), and Jesse Spencer (percussion, guitar, keyboard), Hong and Beeble are ready to debut their new sound with the second of three EPs, “Isosceles," set to release early 2015.
