Happy New Year to everyone! This year will be a pivotal year for The Whispering Tree, I can feel it.  We are busy doing pre-production for our full length album at the moment.  We will be recording at Plan B, in Philly in March…nine days of recording time!!

Clifton Hyde will be producing and playing guitar on the album and he is hooking us up with the finest musicians.  We are going all out this time with strings, brass, and maybe even a choir.

We plan to record about 19 songs, re-do some of the songs from the EP as well as a bunch of new material and then pick the best tracks.

To give you an idea of how insanely awesome this album is going to be, we recorded our EP in one day for $600, Elie mixed it himself and it wasn’t mastered…and it still sounds pretty good.  This time, however,  we will have plenty of time, a much bigger budget, and a professional mixing and mastering engineer.  I am beyond excited about this album finally being completed.  I can not wait to have these songs heard the way they deserve to be heard and released into the world.

Lets make this the best year yet!


Rock me TV

Our Rockmetv.com show was a huge success, the best show we’ve had so far.  It really reinforced for us that this is what we are meant to be doing.  Everyone was so enthusiastic and responsive, my face hurt from all the smiling. Thank you to everyone who came out and made it such an awesome night.

We perfomed for the first time with drummer/percussionist, Chris Schultz, who we were incredibly lucky to find and we look forward to playing and recording with him in the future.

The video of the performance will be up as soon as we can get a hold of it from Rock Me TV.
