In October 2014, the Emerson College Treble Makers performed on WERS as part of Live Music Week. I was engineering the live session, and their cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” struck a chord &emdash; pun intended. Shortly thereafter, I approached the group asking if they would be interested in doing a studio version of their arrangement. They had never recorded anything professionally and I had always wanted to produce an a cappella track. It was a perfect match.
