Winter Comes To Wake You

The unique sound of the harp is joined by a light, heavenly voice to create an intensely intimate and peaceful sound. With a full choir, drums, cello, piano, handbells, and other instruments, the music ranges from meditative to intense and fervent.

Album Notes
Recently brought into wider public recognition through her original contributions to mewithoutYou’s new album, "Brother, Sister", Timbre has been making her mark on today’s musical world. First introduced through her work on Cool Hand Luke’s "The Fires of Life", Timbre has continued to bring her unique sound to the music of many bands, including Anathallo, The Winston Jazz Routine, Umbrella Tree, Foxhole, Aireline, Hundred Year Storm, and most recently Bradley Hathaway.

The music of Timbre immediately strikes the listener as something quite unique, combining the uncommon sound of the harp with an almost classical or Celtic voice. This union of gently flowing music and warm melodies has been described as haunting, peaceful, and even enchanting. Drawing from a wealth of classical education and modern influences such as Sigur Rós and Radiohead, Timbre has brought together genres in an ambient and innovational fusion.
Timbre's first full length record, "Winter Comes to Wake You", boasts a lush instrumentation, including a full choir, drums, a handbell choir, oboe, french horn, toy piano,and vibraphone, in addition to the consistent ensemble of harp, cello, piano, and orchestra bells. Each of Timbre's siblings contributes both instrumentally and vocally on this wonderfully ambitious album.

Timbre Cierpke, a classically trained harpist and vocalist, often performs solo, though she has recently been joined more frequently by her equally talented siblings, Tenor Cierpke (on piano,) Treble Cierpke (piano), and Tetra Cierpke (on everything else.) This musical family has an unmistakable connection, evident in the fluid balance between instruments in both composition and performance.

Timbre’s first album, a self-titled solo EP, was released independently in the fall of 2004 and has been met with much enthusiasm.

The ethereal mix of the rich sounds of the harp with Timbre’s uniquely delicate voice brings a sense of hope, reminding the listener that music can bring peace to the soul as few words can.

Timbre writes some of the most beautiful, haunting, compelling, original, and provocative music I've ever heard. My jaded ears have not loved music like this in a very long time.

"We With Unveiled Faces" in particular has me at last believing that angels walk among us on this earth.

LOVE this!
I thought I would have one favorite, but I love all the songs! What an angelic voice!
