The Southern Gazette - - Front Page -

Los An­ge­les based pro­ducer Jeff Bova, who was on the Burin Penin­sula to at­tend the Live at Heart Global Mu­sic Busi­ness Con­fer­ence re­cently, took some time out of his busy sched­ule to speak with stu­dents at the Marys­town School of Mu­sic.

Josh Par­sons from the school of mu­sic said he was speak­ing with Bova lead­ing up to the con­fer­ence.

“We were dis­cussing what we were go­ing to do with the kids for a while,” he said.

Par­sons said Bova came to the class and told the stu­dents about his ex­pe­ri­ences work­ing with artists such as Michael Jack­son, Eric Clap­ton and Katy Perry, just to name a few.

“He showed some rough cuts of when he was (work­ing) with Katy Perry for the song ‘Wak­ing up in Ve­gas’” Par­sons said. “He had it on his com­puter, the ac­tual record­ing of work­ing with her, and showed the kids what it sounded like (be­fore) and then what it sounded like af­ter it was pro­duced and af­ter it was edited and mas­tered.”
