Although indie pop duo This Is Ivy League formed in August 2005, Alex Suarez (guitar, trumpet, vocals, drums, bass) and Ryland Blackinton (guitar, vocals, synth, bass) had originally met in 1997 during high school in Florida. After high school, Suarez pursued a degree in the culinary arts and Blackinton obtained a B.F.A. in acting. Years later while living in Brooklyn, Blackinton discovered to his surprise that Suarez was also residing in the borough. The duo immediately began writing songs together, and their first EP, London Bridges, was released on Twentyseven Records in summer 2006. ~ Kenyon HopkinPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
