“Trees Hold Time” is a lazily strung out series of minimalist compositions driven by dulcimer, bouzouki, singing bowl and vocals. As repeated lullaby phrases are given time to accumulate and build, the effect is similar to the piling tones of Charlemagne Palestine’s piano pieces, with overtones slowly blooming and dying. Elsewhere, the grainy sound of bowed dulcimer gives “Trees Hold Time” a real devotional air, sharing a still, contemplative grace that’s almost medieval. On the tracks with vocals, Degens summons the lonesome spirit of the likes of mysterious UK folk legend Anne Briggs, haunted and out of time.”- DAVID KEENAN, WIRE

“I love “Trees Hold Time”. Andria has a lovely pure voice and her spirit is evident in her work. What a soulful collection!”- ANTONY, ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS

“I think “Trees Hold Time” is truly beautiful, a perfect balance of music and space”.- CARTER BROWN, LABRADFORD

“Love your CD. It’s just beautiful. Your music is really good and people will be lucky to see it live”.- JEAN-YVES TOLA, 16 HORSEPOWER

Track Name: Trees Hold Time
Oh it seems like such a long time
Holy Spirit waiting
And since I’ve drawn your breath in
Silent and all pervading
Track Name: Sitting On The Mountain Of Suan Mok (Nature Boy)
There was a child
A very strange enchanted child.
They say went wondering very far, very far,
Over land and sea.
A little shy and sad of eye,
But very wise and free.

Then one day,
That magic day we met and played.
Although we spoke of many things, fools and kings.
This is what was said.
The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return.

(original lyrics by Eden Abez)
