Last summer, So We Are took over a 19th Century one-room schoolhouse in the Catskills (Rock Valley NY) and turned it into a recording studio. Colin Dempsey and Joseph LeDoux were joined by some friends upstate, including Matthew HornCliff Westfall Jeremy Chatzky Julia Greenberg and Don Piper (who played and produced). The result was “Things We’ve Learned” by So We Are & The Rock Valley Retinue. We’ll be doing a record release show at HiFi Bar on Monday Nov 21 at 730p. The record is available from CD Baby.
