Spokane-based producer, composer and guitarist Jay Condiotti and his wife turned an old brewery into a recording studio. Then COVID-19 hit. With that investment and no live music for him to play or record, it put them in a difficult financial spot. Jay got in touch with this service called Sound Royalties, which gave him an advance on his pay from his composing and TV soundtrack work, which sustained their family. It also allowed the couple to record their debut album.
