The music industry was not spared by the COVID-19 pandemic but David Joyce and Treblecock Studios are poised to leave their mark on Peterborough as the province opens up.
Joyce opened the recording studio in downtown Peterborough in June 2019. He was inspired to stay in Peterborough after a second date at the downtown concert hall. Garnet for a live show. He had a home studio in Ajax at the time.
“I’m a bit of an old school guy. I grew up loving music in the 70s and 80s and the music scene everywhere was huge, ”Joyce said. “When I discovered Peterborough, it was like a snapshot in time. Live music is everywhere and I was really drawn to it.
It has been closed since the world went into quarantine in March of last year and closed again on Boxing Day.
During the first period of quarantine he met a local musician SJ (Sarah-Jayne) Riley via a group of Facebook actors. The film industry was able to function during the pandemic according to Joyce and recruited her as an actress.
They participated in the shooting of short films found on the studios Youtube page until Joyce hears about Riley’s singing ability.
The duo have collaborated on a number of songs and videos since they met.
Several of Riley’s songs have been produced by Joyce and Treblecock Studios, such as “Mansion of Broken Hearts” and “Whoever This Was Written To”.
When Treblecock reopened last month, Joyce noticed a wave of musicians who wanted to record music to regain a sense of normalcy for Peterborough.
“When I was able to reopen in June, I feel like everyone wants to come in here and record some music that they wrote during the pandemic,” Joyce said.
