Bio

The Ivory Project is the newest body of work from singer/songwriter Jessica Brooks. A musician since the age of 5, Jessica grew up on Quadra Island, off the West Coast of Canada. She studied piano and clarinet before Kurt Cobain’s influence led her to pick up a guitar and begin writing songs. In 2003, when Jessica was living in Toronto, she played host to The 7th Floor Film Production Company during the Toronto Film Festival. Jessica tagged along with her houseguests to the various festival parties. The 7th Floor nicknamed their young host ‘Ivory’, and began introducing her as such. The name stuck. After completing university, Jessica (aka Ivory) moved to New York, where she immersed herself in the music scene and formed the band Captain and Ivory. Jessica played the role of both producer and songwriter, bringing together various musicians with her raw passion for creating music. Jessica’s songwriting talents and unique voice caught the ears of hip hop producer Marshall Law, who asked her to sing on a mixtape that he was working on. In exchange, he gave her one of his beat tracks. She took it home, wrote lyrics to it, and showed up the next day knocking on his studio door. They laid the first version of the track down in a ten hour studio session that same day. Jessica returned to Toronto to co-produce RAISE, where she showcased her track Our Place Now. She performed with a backup singer and choreographed dance moves as the beats played over the sound system. Jessica’s work caught the ears of her old friends at The 7th Floor. They introduced her to Saundi Wilson, a Brooklyn born composer, and as a collective they began work on The Ivory Project. Jessica spent summer 2006 in Los Angeles, recording The Ivory Project demo and writing future tracks.
