ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Over the past eight years, classically trained vocalist Eleanor Kleiner and French bassist Elie
Brangbour have traveled the world on an adventure that began when the two met at music school
in London. With a shared passion for music and travel, they took their unique brand of folk/rock
across continents, logging enough frequent flier miles to make any avid traveler jealous.

Their debut full-length album, Go Call The Captain (2010) was heavily influenced by their travels
abroad, which have taken them from their home base in New York to South America to a seven-
month gig in Macau (China). Go Call The Captain was named "one of the year's most luminous
albums" by The Big Takeover Magazine, and NYC’s The Deli magazine called The Whispering
Tree "one of the most talented duos to take stage in NYC."

Their follow up EP, The Escape (due 4/16) is full of the imagery and storytelling that are the mark
of The Whispering Tree's sound. “I think the underlying theme for all of the songs is a desire for
boundless freedom,” said Kleiner. “There is also this sense of yearning for home or childhood; of
wanting to return to a time when we see the world with limitless possibility.”

Recorded live at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn over three days, The Escape features a
deep, vibrant sound, with Brangbour switching from bass to guitar, Clif Jackson on upright
bass, Chris Shultz on drums and Clifton Hyde on additional guitars. With Kleiner's acclaimed
songwriting and vocals, The Escape is a moody, introspective disc full of contrasting guitar styles
and textures, from one of New York's most compelling indie folk rock acts.

"Easily one of the strongest bands to emerge from the New York indie music scene...The Whispering
Tree has burst through the glass ceiling, demanding the respect they deserve as one of the most
talented duos to take stage in NYC." - Deli Magazine

"The Whispering Tree tastily combine wistful folk, mellow rock and pinches of gypsy jazz and
bluegrass into a compelling compilation of tightly written tunes."- Keyboard Magazine

"One of the year's most luminous albums." - The Big Takeover

"The Whispering Tree manage to be extremely accessible without compromising the intelligence
of their music. To say that Kleiner sounds like an edgier version of Tift Merritt, or Shelby Lynne
in a pensive, cosmopolitan moment, doesn't do justice to the originality of her songwriting or her
unaffected, disarmingly direct vocals. The band were amazing"- Lucid Culture
