Putting it Together

This time of year, I spend most of my days working at Reza Jacob’s music studio on Queen West. Set on the second floor of a three-story building, with apartments above and retail below, Reza’s studio has serious character with walls covered in mirrors and an old style bar tucked in the corner of the room hiding a sloped floor. Each day, we meet with one of the artists in UnCovered: Queen & Bowie. Starting with only a lyric sheet and a few ideas, a glorious, new arrangement of a Queen or Bowie song emerges through experimentation and collaboration within a few short hours.
