Carly in the Studio with Benjamin J Romans

Carly recently announced on Instagram that “we finished three songs in one day”. Carly spent the in the studio with Benjamin J. Romans, the writer/producer who helped make “Emotion” and “Let’s Get Lost”.  Curiously enough, she removed the Instagram post shortly after it was posted, though it still remained on her Facebook.

It is unknown who the gentleman (lady?) sitting down in the photo is, though I suspect that it could be Christopher J. Baran who is Roman’s creative partner who had also worked on the aforementioned Carly Rae Jepsen songs. The LA duo had recently formed Woolf and the Wondershow, a visual/synthpop music act, back in 2016.

B-Roc of The Knocks on Working with Carly Rae Jepsen has an interview up where B-Roc reveals some interesting info:

What do you look for in a collaborator?


B-Roc: The best music comes when we make it with our friends. The way “Classic” happened was so natural, because we knew POWERS for years, even before they were named that. We had a day off and it happened in one day. That’s how “Best Friend” happened, too [with Sofi Tukker.]


Would you work with Carly Rae Jepsen again?


B-Roc: Everyone loves that song! I don’t know. I worked on something at a writing camp that [was going to be] used for her album — a really rad song that I love. Hopefully it’ll be on her record. Other than that, she’s doing her own thing, working on her new album. She has so many songs! She’s sitting on hundreds of songs.

Lovingly nicknamed the “Hit Man” by the music industry, Foster’s career has spanned over 4 decades, writing and producing hits for artists such as Celine Dion, The Corrs, Chicago, Earth Wind And Fire, Mariah Carey, MIchael Jackson, Madonna,  and Whitney Houston.
