The Whispering Tree: Invisible Forces

Folk music is by default serious genre. Political and satirical, but if executed properly, steering clear of being heavy-handed or pontificating. Franco-American duo The Whispering Tree have found the right mix on their new album Invisible Forces. Whether they sing about depression (Heavy), take aim at a mogul living in a high rise (Fat Cat) or dream of moving West (California) singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour always find the best melody and instrumentation to bring the song to life.

They have picked a great band name for their music. It's powerful, deep-rooted and sways gently. Don't surprised when their catchy protest song Bells makes the playlist of many gay marriage ceremonies.

Invisible Forces is a self-released album. Buy it (CD, digital) from their website.
