Camp Saint Helene
Dylan Nowik, and vocalist Liza Ibarra began Camp Saint Helene shortly after moving out of Brooklyn and upstate to the Catskill Mountains. Their studio, where they did most of their writing, is located on the site of a former Christian summer camp-turned-arts-colony, which has informed much of their artistic process. Nowik and Ibarra teamed up with Alex P. Wernquest (drums) and Wesley Harper (bass and keys), to record their first album to 8-track, ½” tape, at Basement Floods Records in Catskill, New York. Their debut record, Mother, is set to be released on September 27th, 2019.
