Ivory Tower (A New Feature Film Written and Produced by Chilly Gonzales!)
Check Out “I Am Europe” Music Video/ Film Trailer hereunder. Chilly Gonzales has been creating magic behind the scenes of some of the past decade’s favorite artists (Feist, Peaches, Jamie Lidell), has established himself as a worldwide entertainer renowned for his Piano Talk Shows (recently ones with Andrew WK, A-Trak, Sia) and holds the Guinness World Record for longest solo concert (27+ hours!). So what is left for him to tackle, you may ask? Writing and producing a feature-length FILM, of course!!
