SoundCheck For Success – The Pandemic Producer



Covid-19 pandemic has had a drastic affect on society and the music industry specifically. Isolation and social distancing have forced artists to think of new ways to gather, collaborate, record and share their art. “The Pandemic Producer” hosted by Canadian uber producer Darius Szczepaniak is a seminar-style panel that will empower you to achieve your goals in the days of this pandemic.


  • How the pandemic has changed how a producer functions and interacts with artists.
  • The technological changes and developments of production/recording/mixing sessions are conducted. What is remote production? What technology is required for remote production?
  • How artists have been empowered by having to adapt and be more resourceful during the pandemic. An entire generation of young producers/engineers and musicians will be responsible for what the future looks like.
  • How the future of production has changed forever.

Leanne Mayer

With the release of her debut EP, “Bittersweet Remedy”, Leanne Mayer has announced herself as a unique and exciting new voice in London, Ontario’s indie music scene.

The record features Leanne’s whimsical blend of jazz, blues, old school country, and pop folk. The five songs are a carnival of styles, from the sultry “See Through Lies” to the bouncing “Renegade” and melancholy “Whatever Will Be.”

Together, they represent the work of an artist who isn’t afraid to experiment, or to explore matters of the heart. Her raw, honest lyrics and soulful voice tell stories of loss and hope, coloured by just the right amount of world-weary wisdom and determination.

In fact, Leanne won a prestigious Forest City London Music Award in the Contemporary Singer/Songwriter category in 2019, and is nominated this year for “Fan Favourite”.

Her music has been featured nationally on CBC radio and is developing a dedicated following at her live shows (her EP release shows in London and her native Kirkland Lake, Ontario both sold out). She was a featured artist at London’s Home County Music & Art Festival in 2019, and opened for Cat Clyde on her North American Hunter’s Trance Tour.

Backed by a full band, London’s “lounge pop queen” is ready to take her career as far as it can go. As Leanne Mayer’s story continues to unfold, one thing is sure: Bittersweet Remedy is just the beginning!
