Road Recovery

In the coming year MajorWho will formalize its already deep relationship with Road Recovery. The last year saw great successes with Road Recovery and its performance workshops. We produced several well received tracks with its band Crazy James as well as songs with participants in RR programs through the Ittleson Center, Hawthorn, and the Jewish Board of Family Services. This year we will continue to host Road Recovery meetings, rehearsals, and master classes at our studio and will be producing many more tracks. Look for a Road Recovery and MajorWho compilation disc by the end of the year.
