"We want a little production studio," Levatino continues, "but we also want to get creative with it and maybe help out some artists that need a break--cool, independent artists that want to record."
The plan--tentatively--is to reach out to one artist a year and bring them into the studio for recording sessions with Badu's producers and sound engineers. A sort of mentorship progam, if you will.
Unfortunately, the general public will only see the finished products: "It's not big enough for performances or anything like that," Levatino laments. And, still, it's all quite a ways off at this point. Construction on the space only started this week.
