Last year Rebecca Rego & The Trainmen recorded their third full-length record “Speaking of Witches” at Bon Iver’s April Base studios in Eau Claire, Wisconsin with producer Beau Sorenson. This is their second album with Sorenson, who is based at Tiny Telephone Studio in San Francisco. Sorensen has previously worked with Bob Mould, tune-yards and Thao and The Get Down Stay Down.
Former Wisconsinite Rebecca Rego’s writing on “Speaking of Witches” is inspired by her move to Kentucky in 2016. Her songs detail her experience adapting to her new home, getting in touch with nature, and falling in love with Southern music culture.
Speaking of Witches is now available on Bandcamp and all streaming platforms.
Rego has molded the rugged tones of Heartless Bastards with the harmonies of Neko Case & Grace Potter..........The trajectory of songs summons a fruitful creative growth for Rego, making Speaking of Witches easily one of 2019’s top new listens."
