The Whispering Tree to release new album

 "One of the most talented duos to take stage in NYC,” (The Deli Magazine) acclaimed New York based folk/rock duo The Whispering Tree will release The Escape (EP) on April 16, the follow up to their debut full length album Go Call The Captain (2010).

Named "one of the year's most luminous albums" by The Big Takeover Magazine,Go Call The Captain was heavily influenced by the duo’s travels abroad which have taken classically trained vocalist Eleanor Kleiner and French bassist Elie Brangbour from their home base in New York to South America to a seven-month gig in Macau (China).

The Escape features the imagery and storytelling that are the hallmark 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.
