NMC Rough Cuts: Joanna Borromeo

For NMC Rough Cuts presented by Bell, JUNO-nominated artist Joanna Borromeo shares the meticulous process behind writing, producing, and recording her neo-soul and funk-inspired ode to the life (and trials) of an artist, “Boulevard.”

NMC Rough Cuts presented by Bell is a podcast series by the National Music Centre (NMC). Over five episodes, we’ll feature a handful of Canadian artists, who’ve produced an original song during a one-day recording session inside NMC’s famed studios at Studio Bell in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Hear the song, the story behind it, and learn what motivates each artist. The series is hosted by NMC’s in-house engineer Graham Lessard (Basia Bulat, Kevin Drew, Reuben and the Dark, Stars, Timber Timbre), whose recordings have earned multiple JUNO Award nominations.
