The self-produced Commonwealth, with help from Ryan Haslett and Gregory McDonald, was recorded over a one-year long period at Sloan Studios in Toronto, Ontario. The long gestation was due to “a combination of availability, determination, readiness, willingness, intentionality, hoping, wanting, doubting, fearing, needing, waffling, trying, failing, restarting, assembling, writing and eventually deciding and trusting,” says Scott.
