Denver five-piece Ivory Circle stopped into the CPR Performance Studio prior to performing at last month's UMS.
Singer Connie Hong formerly worked as a music teacher around Denver, and would compose songs during her lunch break that led her to switch to a career in performance.
Keefer Fulgham chatted with Hong about the challenges of teaching choir performance, how she and producer and bassist Chris Beeble joined forces, and contributing an Ivory Circle song to a VH1 show.
Ivory Circle will play an album release party on Saturday, August 9 at Hi-Dive.
