California folk by way of Sweden? There’s a lot of California in Cleopatra Degher’s sound but, in fact, she spent more of her childhood in Sweden than in California. After attending kindergarten in San Diego, she lived the rest of her school years under the gray skies of Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö, the child of a Swedish mother and a Californian father. When Cleopatra returned to San Diego just a few years ago, at eighteen, she released her debut EP, Restrung (2012). She says that’s how she felt coming back to California “like a guitar with brand new strings.” Dan Bennett of the San Diego Union Tribune called it “a catchy acoustic collection brimming with melody and insight.” Now Cleopatra has taken things to the next level: her first full-length album is about to be released. The new album, Pacific, is a lush, fully-realized collection of songs that dive deep, that seek, that calm. It’s a record where traditional American folk influences underpin both the songs and the performances. But Cleopatra has little interest in being a museum piece. Her contemporary folk sensibilities, along with something about her serene and haunting voice, ensure that the album resides securely in the present, even if the ghosts of Laurel Canyon and the Dustbowl do make frequent appearances.
