Tenzin Chopak's first album "Rockwood Ferry: Speak Like Water" was released July of 2012 and features Eric Aceto on violin, Rosie Newton on violin and vocals, Harry Aceto on double bass, and Richie Stearns on banjo.

Tenzin's debut album "Speak Like Water" was recorded the old fashioned way, with all musicians playing at once in a circle in one room, on one lovely drizzly day in May of 2012 at MonkSound in Trumansburg with engineer/producer/dear friend Greg McGrath.  It was later mastered by Nate Silas Richardson at REP Studios in Ithaca. The band had only been performing together since December of 2011, and the approach to these seven original songs was free, spontaneous, and improvisational - a live performance recording  that captures the stage of evolution that the ensemble was passing through at that very moment.  Although there are only seven songs on the recording, they just so happen to amount to approximately 43 minutes of music - and that is how this project went from being an EP demo to being a full album.   
 The ensemble on this album is Tenzin Chopak, Richie Stearns, Rosie Newton, Eric Aceto, and Harry Aceto.
"Speak Like Water" was then released during Rockwood Ferry's performances in the dance tent at the Grassroots Music Festival in Trumansburg in July of 2012.
All songs were written by Tenzin Chopak except Billy in the Low Ground (traditional), Rosie's Unreel (Rosie Newton), and Martin's Breakdown (Richie Stearns).
All songs were arranged by the Rockwood Ferry ensemble.
