Well these past few months have been really busy- so many great things are happening that we hardly have the time to write about it. Our new cd 'House of Sticks' has been out for a few weeks and is already picking up airplay throughout the U.S. and Europe, and is also among the top 50 Best Sellers list at Darla Records, Yay! (Darla is distributing our record in the U.S.) As well, a release date for the 'Leaves of Life' compilation will be announced soon. AND, we just recorded a song to be included on a tribute cd in honor of the legendary Odetta. The Cd is curated by Wears the Trousers Magazine, (http://wearsthetrousers.com/) and the song we recorded was an Arborea take on 'This Little Light of Mine' We are really excited to be a part of this compilation, as we have a deep respect for Odetta and the light she shone on the world. As yet we don't know the release date for that comp, but we'll keep you posted.
Also, Arborea was in Dirty Linen Magazine again, alongside Vetiver, Helena Espvall and Masaki Batoh, Fern Knight and Larkin Grimm in issue #140 (March/April 2009) as part of the Psych Folk Feature Article written by Veteran writer Lahri Bond. Dirty Linen Magazine can be found in every major bookseller throughout the the world....pick up a copy while you can! There are several more project in the works, as well as our non musical interests (local community activism, organic gardening and teaching) we'll write more on all this soon (i hope)
