The Whispering TreeGo call the captain and hold the tight the rail
This ship is sinking and we need some help
Someone please save us from these wicked men
Who rule the world, rule the world, rule the world
~ Go Call the Captain, The Whispering Tree

Now based in New York, classically trained vocalist Eleanor Kleiner and French bassist Elie Brangbour met at the London Center of Contemporary Music in 2004.  Together they formed The Whispering Tree, Eleanor's liquid-sweet voice balanced and grounded by Elie's solid bass, their extensive training only evident in how effortlessly the songs flow. 

Since their meeting, Eleanor and Elie have traveled the world, sharing their music and picking up new influences everywhere from China to South America.  Their new release, Go Call the Captain, combines elements of folk, rock, jazz and bluegrass into a melting pot of musical inspiration that is at once familiar and otherworldly.
