1 / 1
Ivory Circle is an indie-alternative band from Denver, Colorado, started by singer-songwriter Connie Hong and producer/multi-instrumentalist Chris Beeble. They are joined by Rob Spradling on drums/ percussion.
A former middle school choir teacher in a suburb of Aurora, Colorado, Hong used to write songs during her lunch breaks and play them for her students. She would eventually realize her passion was in creating and performing and left the public teaching field behind. Beeble, a longtime friend, joined the project after several song-writing and recording sessions and a mutually found musical vision.
With formal musical training in multiple genres under both of their belts, Hong and Beeble released the acoustic EP, “Entropy” in 2013 to positive reviews, leading to a featured song on a promotional spot for Showtime Network's The Affair, a featured song on VH1’s Couples Therapy, a spot in The Denver Post’s Underground Music Showcase, as well as opening slots for acclaimed national acts such as Copeland, San Fermin, Son Lux, and Caroline Smith. Most recently, Ivory Circle made KTCL's Hometown For the Holidays top 11 in 2014, for their song "Faces and Colors."
Hong’s ability to translate personal experiences (like heartache, death, or exploration of faith) into relatable musical stories is accomplished with the help of Beeble in their full band arrangements. Spradling brings a unique technological element to Ivory Circle as a videographer and additional in-studio producer, and has designed and developed the light show programs for Ivory Circle’s live performances. Recognizing the relevance of maintaining a strong online and social media presence, Ivory Circle creates an intimate experience with their listeners around the world through their blog and social media outlets.
Ivory Circle creates a sound as unique as it is precise, electrifying and passionate, complete with lush strings, harmonic layers, and pulsing drumbeats, interwoven between the piano and vocal lines that give them their trademark sound. The combination of their intricate compositions juxtaposed with Hong’s vocal prowess make them comparable to notable musicians such as Florence+the Machine, Regina Spektor, and Kimbra. The first two EPs in their Triangle series, “Equilateral” and “Isosceles” are available on iTunes and Bandcamp. The third and final installement, “Scalene,” was released March of 2018.
