Cleopatra Degher ‘Blue Hour’ : Classic story telling at it’s best.

Wordsmith excellence.

Cleopatra Degher

‘Watershed’ (available now) is the 3rd release by alternative folk artist Cleopatra Degher. Her inspiration for the songs on the EP came out of a windy year living in Malmö, Sweden, one of her childhood hometowns. Equal parts Californian and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, the classic wordsmith excellence from Cleopatra’s songs are undeniably poignant and hard not to love.

Cleopatra’s last album ‘Pacific’ charted on numerous college radio stations and was featured on NPR’s World Café Next show. The Austin Chronicle called her the “Emmylou Harris for a new generation of folk.” One San Diego music critic said her “pitch-perfect timbre… rivals those of Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell.” Touring in support of the record, she played an official showcase at SXSW and has opened shows for artists like Los Lonely Boys, Aoife O’Donovan, and the Bacon Brothers.

With all the accolades and adoration by critics, still things just come down to the song. And when ‘Blue Hour’ plays on your radio of your mind, you’re swept back into your chair, comforted by the wisps of story telling and Cleopatra’s fabulous vocals.

We want more of Cleopatra and her offerings. You should too.
