CUTTING EDGE: The new studio boasts the latest in ultra-mod recording equipment.
Central Clarendon is quite fortunate to have a Member of Parliament as productive and clearly passionate about community service as Mike Henry, whose efforts in the constituency, after 35 years, continues to take laudable and fascinating turns. Particularly well-documented are his May Pen-based exploits in sports team management (the rejuvenated Humble Lion FC), academic sponsorship and the ongoing improvement of physical infrastructure in and around the town centre, giving the whole place a much-needed modern makeover.
And modern is exactly what springs to mind when one considers the constituency's latest coup: the arrival of the Lion Ville Studio, a groundbreaking and state-of-the-art recording and production facility that's bound to further establish May Pen as the epicentre of the new and the next in rural Jamaica.
Newly opened in Effortville (a couple of miles north of the town centre), Lion Ville comes fully equipped with the latest in cutting-edge technology and ultra-mod recording equipment and was conceived of to offer everything from vocal recording and mastering to professional courses in sound engineering, among other areas. "These services and resources are an important prerequisite for human resource development within the parish," reveals the veteran parliamentarian and publishing magnate in a recent Gleaner report.
