Biography

Pantaleimon is the musical project of Andria Degens, a vocalist and multi instrumental sound artist. Combining elements of acoustic, folk, world, and electronics to create music that have been associated with indie folk, and psych folk genres.

Past guest members have been Isobel Campbell, Jay Darlington, Baby Dee, Will Oldham, James Blackshaw and Robin Casinader. Pantaleimon have worked with Hugo Race, Current 93, Andrew WK, Stephen O’Malley, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Chris Carter amongst others. Featured in Cam Archer’s ‘Wild Tigers I Have Known’. Pantaleimon’s music spans 4 albums and 2 Ep’s originally released on the Durtro label and later Durtro Jnana. And in 2013 the latest, the fifth record, ‘The Butterfly Ate The Pearl’, was released on Grass Girl Music.

Andria Degens was born in England. During her early twenties, she sold everything and took to the road, traveling two and half years through South East Asia. Following some very deep spiritual experiences Degens began to play music with a new sense of purpose. When she arrived back in England, she started making experimental recordings, and in time adopted the name “Pantaleimon.” The name “Pantaleimon” was inspired by Phillip Pullman’s ‘His Dark Materials Trilogy.’ The name means “all merciful.”

    Очень, очень хорошо. До этого я знал её только как исполнительницу одной из "Идумей" на роскошном альбоме C93 "Black Ships Ate The Sky". Кажется, для того альбома Дэвид выбрал самые сливки музыкального подполья.

    @ishtar1917: Given that she is married to David Tibet its very likely she was named after the Christian Saint.

    BTW, does anyone know why the singer chose such name for herself? (the only associacion I have with it is a Christian saint, but I bet he's more worshipped among Orthodox Christians, and western people don't know a lot about him.

    This music is just soooo great, why haven't I heard it before? I fell in love with it. I wish Pantaleimon'd hold a concert someplace closer to my homecountry than Britain is, like in Poland or in Russia =)

    I see nothing apocalyptic about it, but I think the Tibet association is bound to cause some labels to spring forth. Last.fm tags are usually silly anyway. Regardless, lovely guitars and lovely music.
