Common Prayer are a Brooklyn-based indie rock band led by Jason Sebastian Russo. They released their debut full-length album, "There Is A Mountain," in 2010 on England's Big Potato Records (founded by Neil Halstead) in the UK, and on Russo's own South Cherry Entropy imprint of Virtual Label digitally in North America.
"There Is A Mountain" was recorded in a cow barn at Hill Farm in Steventon, Oxfordshire, at the site of the Truck Festival, with significant musical contributions from Joe and Robin Bennett of Goldrush. Other players include Alexandra Marvar, as well as Justin Russo of The Silent League. The record was well-received in the UK; the BBC called it "one of the year-so-far’s most recommended under-the-radar releases."
