Ivy League

Alex and Ryland met in 1997 in High School. Both were avid guitar players and both played in local bands with varying degrees of accolade. Alex got Ryland a job waiting tables at "Mr. Deli's Jewish Delicatessan," in Boca Raton, Florida.

A few years later, Alex went off to pursue a degree in the culinary arts while Ryland procured his BFA in Acting. The two lost touch for seven years.

Ivy League formed in August of 2005 when Ryland discovered that his old friend Alex was not only still playing music but living just ten minutes away from him in Brooklyn, NY. The duo quickly began writing songs together. They hope you enjoy their music as much as they do.

In 2006 Ivy League released the EP London Bridges, containing the covers of Simon & Garfunkel's 'June' and the Arcade Fire's 'Crown Of Love'. Ivy League signed for Twentyseven Records and scheduled the new album for March 2008. They released the video for 'London Bridges'. Highly Recommended!
