Award-winning singer-songwriter Erin Ivey joins forces with the renowned Tosca String Quartet (David Byrne, Bonnie Raitt, Arcade Fire, Spoon) to release a CD/DVD of original lullabies and lightly-dark fairy tales.
Whisper of the Moon swims in the unique waters of "Chamber Folk." It is an intimate and emotional combination of Erin Ivey's Urban Folk songwriting and the classical music pedigree of Tosca String Quartet, as arranged by composers Christopher Cox and Leigh Mahoney.
The album also features a song, "Jack's Lullaby," co-written by singer-songwriter Darden Smith, founder of Songwriting with Soldiers (recently profiled by CNN, NPR, Spin, The NY Times, LA Times, and The Washington Post).
In addition to the music, the collection includes a DVD with videos of the original studio performance at AM Stereophonic, artfully filmed and edited by Justin Kirchhoff of Digital Shakedown. Celebrated illustrator Graham Franciose provides original album art.
