Franco-American folk rock duo, The Whispering Tree were the most played artist on the International Folk DJ Chart for September 2018 and their new release, Invisible Forces was the #1 album, with four songs in the top 20. Big Takeover Magazine called the project "a socially potent commentary of humankind's modern times."

At the heart of The Whispering Tree are singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour. Together, they craft richly immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics and a panoramic musicality.

Invisible Forces, the fourth recording by the fiercely independent twosome, was self-produced, fan-funded and recorded at Elie and Eleanor's home studio in Beacon, NY and at Old Soul Studio in Catskill, NY. The album explores a deeply personal and political landscape, with messages of hope, despair and social consciousness.

The song, "Fat Cat" which was #5 for September, has its origins in Elie's French background and the old-time gypsy jazz tradition back in his hometown while the satirical, anti-capitalist sentiment of the lyrics is firmly rooted in the protest songs of the folk revival and music of folk legend and longtime Beacon resident, Pete Seeger.

Other highlights include the impressionistic "These Houses,"(which was #2 for September) a song describing urban decay and the haunting beauty of abandoned places; the revelatory "Heavy" which elegantly connects New Orleans-style jazz with 1960s rock and pop harmony vocals; the darkly foreboding environmental ballad, "Garden;" and the sweetly rousing protest song of social change, "Bells" which was inspired by the struggle to legalize gay marriage.

Since its 2007 inception, The Whispering Tree has issued two albums and two EPs, and toured nationally and internationally. The duo has also earned prime critical acclaim from The Big Takeover Magazine and Keyboard Magazine, among others. Other marquee career moments include being Kerrville New Folk finalists; Philadelphia Songwriter's Project winners; and Eleanor and Elie having the honor to lend their voices to Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt's album, A More Perfect Union.
