One River is an image of our interconnectedness across space and time. Our ancestors flowed into us, and life will continue the motion beyond our days on the planet. Spirit is the river, and body the boat. 
 With a name taken from noted anthropologist Wade Davis' book, One River was founded by Michael Quattrone as a musical outgrowth of his work with Hearthfire. "Magic happens when we gather in a circle to mark life's passages with song," says Michael. "And sometimes you invite a record producer, who brings a magic of his own." 
 The eponymous debut includes ten original songs by Michael. It was produced by Hugh Christopher Brown and Michael Quattrone for Chris's independent, artist-driven label, Wolfe Island Records. The idea for the record emerged after Michael invited the Canadian producer and multi-instrumentalist to collaborate on music for a retreat, and join a men's group, at Hearthfire. 
 The two-and-a-half year recording process that followed straddled the US/Canada border, the 2016 national election, and the Atlantic Ocean. 
 The album is ripe for release at this moment of cultural, political, economic, and ecological upheaval, which demands our fullest, collective presence to the outer- and inner- transformations underway. 
 One River traces a pilgrimage on the landscape of being, arriving where celebration meets devotion: We are one river, one great river, and we flow.
