Common Prayer are a Brooklyn-based indie rock band led by Jason Sebastian Russo.[1] 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,[2] at the site of the Truck Festival, with significant musical contributions from Joe and Robin Bennett of Goldrush.[3] Other players include Alexandra Marvar,[4] 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."[3]
