Arborea was featured in the very last issue of Performing Songwriter magazine. In the 'Just Push Play' section, in the June 2009 issue (Odds and ends that the staff of 'Performing Songwriter' have been obsessing over) Beth Walker wrote:
Husband-and-wife duo Arborea are undoubtedly located on the folkier side of life. And their brand of folk is ethereal, bone-chilling and beautiful all at once. House of Sticks has a very organic feel, as one may imagine simply from perusing some of the song titles - "River and Rapids," "Look Down Fair Moon" and "In the Tall Grass"- and it has the uncanny ability to transport the listener into a vastly different, dreamier world.
