Into the Trees - Zoe Keating
Oooh, exciting... I've just discovered that cellist Zoe Keating released her new album Into the Trees last month. If you haven't yet encountered her and her music, you are in for a treat. Zoe is surely one of the most gifted, graceful and ethically astute musicians around. She's streaming several tracks from Into the Trees on her website; the full album is available for order in three different formats (Digital, Compact Disc and a Deluxe Edition Compact Disc, ranging in price from US$8.00 to US$20.00).
