There was a time when record labels were more committed to developing the careers of their recording artists. There was more money changing hands and more time to accomplish the desired result. Today, it is much harder to find a record label committed to this goal. When a major or indie label signs a new artist or band, they presume the act has sufficient musical, songwriting and performance talent, and are ready for the big time. The results of such assumptions are the predominantly mediocre recordings of the modern era.


Enter David Ivory.  Over the years, Ivory has worked with some of music’s biggest names in a variety of genres and, in the process, encouraged some of their finest work.  David and his team believes in the overall development of his artists, and their music remains the driving force to their approach.




David Ivory is proud to pass on his many years of industry knowledge in the classroom and on the road as a lecturer. Ivory is an Adjunct Professor of the "Music Industry Program" that he also helped develop for Drexel University. He also helped conceive and instructs the Summer MI Boot Camp program designed for High School seniors considering furthering their educations at Drexel and much more...
