Los Angeles–based producer, composer and musician Adam Hamilton christened his new home studio by producing a new release for William Shatner titled Seeking Major Tom, a “concept record” inspired by David Bowie’s astronaut character and 19 cover songs.

Shatner recruited friends such as Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley, Steve Miller, Lyle Lovett and Bootsy Collins to contribute. Some artists visited Hamilton’s space, while others collaborated remotely. Hamilton weaved all the elements together in Pro Tools. “I’d say 90 percent of the time everything would line up perfectly,” Hamilton says, “and then sometimes it’s like a jigsaw puzzle that got thrown up in the air, and all of a sudden you have to put it back together piece by piece.”
