Anders Helmerson "Quantum House Project"

Anders Helmerson is the artist who has been known as a prog fusion composer and cult keyboard player since his sold-out first album "End Of Illusion" (1981).
He has previously released 3 albums, the most recent Triple Ripple was released in 2011 where he collaborated with German drummer Marco Minneman and American bassist Bryan Beller.

What has happened since then?
One thing: Anders has put his electronica behind and plays acoustic grand piano in collaboration with his new trio. This new outfit came as a surprise to many with what it have conceived and many fans was disappointed but he has now gained many new listeners. He still underline that the type of music he is composing now does not differ much from before although the timbre is different.

And due to this timbre the music he produces has suddenly become accepted in the jazz venues. The setting grand piano, drums ( played by Christian Grassart ) and electric bass ( played by Thierry Conand) makes the outcome feel more jazzy and organic. The music is energetic and loud but at the same time lyrical sensitive.

The new trio, named by Anders as "Quantum House Project" is now playing live shows in UK and France. Following by the successful live show at Vortex Jazz Club in London, UK on 4th September 2018, the new album will officially be released on Saturday 3rd November 2018 at PizzaExpress Jazz club in Soho, London, UK at 1PM for a new album release launch party with Anders solo grand piano teaser performance as the background music for the industry networking.

The trio gigs will follow at full live shows after the album launch in later dates, including Paris-Prague Jazz Club on Saturday 26 January 2019 and more gig dates will be added and gig bookings to the clubs are now open via his management at

The name Quantum House eludes to the modern science of quantum mechanics that has been a source of inspiration for Anders when he wrote he music and titles as Superposition and Entangle reflects his philosophy in terms of how nature influences the creative process of writing music.
Prior to the album version, the single Entangle in now on the major music download and streaming services such as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play and so on.

The new album "Quantum House Project" will be on sale for worldwide distributions on 3rd November 2018.

INVISIBLE FORCES By The Whispering Tree Tops The Charts As The #1 Album On Folk Radio For September

Franco-American folk rock duo, The Whispering Tree were the most played artist on the International Folk DJ Chart for September 2018 and their new release, Invisible Forces was the #1 album, with four songs in the top 20. Big Takeover Magazine called the project "a socially potent commentary of humankind's modern times."

At the heart of The Whispering Tree are singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour. Together, they craft richly immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics and a panoramic musicality.

Invisible Forces, the fourth recording by the fiercely independent twosome, was self-produced, fan-funded and recorded at Elie and Eleanor's home studio in Beacon, NY and at Old Soul Studio in Catskill, NY. The album explores a deeply personal and political landscape, with messages of hope, despair and social consciousness.

The song, "Fat Cat" which was #5 for September, has its origins in Elie's French background and the old-time gypsy jazz tradition back in his hometown while the satirical, anti-capitalist sentiment of the lyrics is firmly rooted in the protest songs of the folk revival and music of folk legend and longtime Beacon resident, Pete Seeger.

Watch the video for "Fat Cat" here:

Other highlights include the impressionistic "These Houses,"(which was #2 for September) a song describing urban decay and the haunting beauty of abandoned places; the revelatory "Heavy" which elegantly connects New Orleans-style jazz with 1960s rock and pop harmony vocals; the darkly foreboding environmental ballad, "Garden;" and the sweetly rousing protest song of social change, "Bells" which was inspired by the struggle to legalize gay marriage.

Watch the new video for HEAVY here:

Since its 2007 inception, The Whispering Tree has issued two albums and two EPs, and toured nationally and internationally. The duo has also earned prime critical acclaim from The Big Takeover Magazine and Keyboard Magazine, among others. Other marquee career moments include being Kerrville New Folk finalists; Philadelphia Songwriter's Project winners; and Eleanor and Elie having the honor to lend their voices to Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt's album, A More Perfect Union.
