This week I was able to speak to Scott Schorr about how he created the LEVIN TORN WHITE album. You may not know Scott’s name but you’re bound to have heard some music he has been involved with.

Founder of record label and music publishing company, Lazy Bones Recordings, Scott describes himself as ‘a successful Music Producer, Arranger, Songwriter, Beat Maker, Mixing Supervisor and Video Editor’.

He has produced recordings for some people you might have heard of such as Jordan Rudess, Marco Minnemann and Mike Keneally as well as numerous albums by Tony Levin. If you haven’t heard the LEVIN TORN WHITE album, then it’s time to remedy that situation.

  • How did this meeting of 3 iconic prog artists happen?
  • What do the track names mean?
  • What was it like working with these 3 characters?
