This year, we teamed up the artists from BC and Alberta with the challenge of writing a song to record at boot camp using the theme “Come Together". The artists worked with our amazing producers Jeff Dawson, Garth Richardson, Russell Broom, Shawn Cole, Warne Livesey, and Winston Hauschild to come up with 12 original songs. All 12 songs were recorded in 5 pop-up studios built in a day at RockRidge Canyon, Princeton, BC by the Nimbus School of Recording Arts and their amazing crew.
