Kensington Sound Studios
On Sunday May 16, 2010, Kensington Sound celebrated 38 years in the Canadian music scene, producing some of Canada’s top artists records, jingles and voice overs and continues to offer the opportunity to make young musicians dreams come true. This also marked the new partnership with tread FIRE Music that has lead to a funky new upgrade and renovation of the studio bringing it down from the second level to the ground floor. Vezi, a seasoned musician himself and one of the original founders of the studio, hosted the event, held next door at the Graffitis Bar, 170 Baldwin St., Toronto, with an open stage for entertainment. The street was packed, as friends and the curious stopped by to be part of the great music and food while Vezi offered tours of the new studio, located next door through the lane that brings you back to a part of Toronto’s music history. Vezi is in the process of writing a book on the years of events that crossed the doors of the studio, recounting many favorite Kensington Sound memories. If you have some of your own stories, experiences or pictures from those days be sure to let him Vezi know.
We all remember the hit show” King of Kensington”, with the beloved Al Waxman. Maybe Vezi and his studio will be known as the “Sound of Kensington”, as it is a community Icon and along with his new business partner Adam Debec, they will continue to offer a way for Canadian songs and music to be produced, packaged and heard around the world. Stay to tune more on Vezi and the studio in upcoming articles. www.kensingtonsound.ca
