We wanted to bring you some updates from all of us at Root 7! We’re wrapping up SUCH a busy year – full of gigs, recording sessions, album releases & reviews, and tons of fun in between!
If you follow us here on our website, we want you to know that we are in the process of revamping our website. We will still post some important announcements on our new site, but this will be our final blog post here. Instead you can find updates on our Facebook page and on Instagram!
We are excited for this upcoming year and hope you will continue following us on social media and being the best fans we could hope for!
xoxo, Root 7
Root7 is proud to be releasing our first recorded album Exit 1. We have been working on this 6 song EP since last November, and are excited to share the first album created by this group with our family, friends and fans. A few of them even appear as a choir in Chris‘s mashup of I’m Yours/ Where is the Love. They are:
Chiara Antonioli, Kim Antonioli, Kyla Antonioli, Taylor Antonioli, Jim Coates,
Katrina Fagerlund, Rob Fish, Michaela Goodyear, Mary L. Guyette, Louise C. Guyette, Ella LaRose, Erin LaRose, Megan Earley LaRose, Linda Malzac, Bella Trasciatti-Holmberg, and Simone Trasciatti-Holmberg
The album was engineered and mixed by Luke Young, recorded at the local Meadowlark Studios in Williston, and mastered by Bill Hare Productions. We could not have done this album without the amazing talents of all of these people, and we thank them for being partners in this creative project.
The album features the following songs, all arranged by members of the group:
Don’t Stop the Music – arranged by Sharon and Chris
In the Air Tonight – arranged by Joseph and Root7
I’m Yours / Where is the Love – arranged by Chris
Blown Away – arranged by Joseph
Dance in the Graveyards – arranged by Joseph

Earlier in the summer we released a video for one of the tracks from the album, Blown Away https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KtMnLor2Go . The video was shot at Meadowlark Studios and Adams Apple Orchard & Farm Market.
Thank you to everyone that supported our efforts for this album, we could not have done it without you. After you listen to the tracks we would love to hear your favorite songs and moments.
We had an exciting time beginning the recording process at Meadowlark Studios in Williston, VT. We recorded our “scratch tracks” for several of our songs. What an amazing start on our journey in creating an album!
Later in the day, we just couldn’t contain our performative energy. Hang out with Root 7 long enough, and we just might sing in your home too!
The very next day, we were at it again, with yet another impromptu performance at Sharon’s Superbowl Party!
Root7 brought the Halloween spirit to 51 Main in Middlebury. Costumes were worn, spooky songs were sung, and delicious food was eaten. Ghostbusters!
Thank you to 51 main to hosting us. We can not wait to be back.
