Renowned Grammy®-nominated Engineer / Producer David Ivory recently launched a new website through Impact Artist Promotions, LLC (IAP) promoting his Rock-N-Roll Boot Camp® (www.rocknrollbootcamp.com), a summer rock music camp hosted at Ivory’s own Dylanava Studios located in the serene suburbs just north of Philadelphia. Rock-N-Roll Boot Camp provides students with intense, focused, fun and lasting instruction on record-quality recording, production and performance from a team of instructors with remarkable industry credentials.
The first camp will take place July 26th through the 29th, 2010. According to Ivory, only 12 privileged students will be accepted to participate in each camp. Students may submit their applications and access complete information online at www.rocknrollbootcamp.com.
Ivory, the recently-elected President of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (the Grammy’s®) Philadelphia chapter and adjunct professor of music at Montgomery County Community College (MCCC), has instructed such notable chart toppers as The Roots, Erykah Badu, Kindred, Patti Labelle and more. He is also contemporarily recognized for discovering and launching the major-label careers of modern-rock bands Silvertide (J Records) and Halestorm (Atlantic Records) and has been a contracted partner for Atlantic Records since 2005.
“The Rock-N-Roll Boot camp is something that I have wanted to do for quite some time,” said Ivory. “I have always felt that the only way to learn this career is from people who actually do it, from people who make music on a daily basis. This camp will introduce aspiring musicians and recording professionals to what it’s really like doing this for a profession.”
In addition to the numerous artists who’ve traveled from all over the United States to have the privilege of working with Ivory, recent international clients include the groups, FRUiT (Australia) and Coolooloosh (Israel), both of which have toured the world performing and promoting their music.
Supplemental to Ivory, accredited instructors at Rock-N-Roll Boot Camp include Dr. Louis Anthony deLise who played drums with local Philadelphia soul and jazz groups and toured with the big bands of Warren Covington, Buddy Morrow and Tex Beneke. Today deLise works as a composer of concert music, arranges and conducts for pop records, composes for film and teaches at the Boyer College of Music and Dance. His recording credits include a #1 chart album for Patti Labelle and numerous additional pop-chart records.
Multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, Chuck Treece brings his years of experience to the camp as a professional session musician who has plied his talents for the Bad Brains, Pearl Jam, Sting, Overkill, Amy Grant, Busta Rhymes and Billy Joel (playing bass on “River of Dreams”) to name a few.
Instructor Ken Cavalier brings his decades of artist management, marketing, promotion and public-relations consulting experience to the camp. His band “Steel Road” was signed to Warner Brothers and Paramount (turned ABC) records in the 70’s. Ken is currently a voting member of NARAS (the Grammy’s®), the National Conference of Personal Managers and other distinguished organizations.
