This event is all ages
"A most unpretentious group melding sunshiney hippie enthusiasm with epic post-rock breakdowns." --New York Observer
"Big Tree's music personally brings me back to the jams of the swingin' Summer of Love, albeit in a melancholy, jazz-tinged, utterly earnest way. No Elephant 6 revivalists of retropsychy sounds, Big Tree play a brand of grooving, poetic, sometimes knotty folk rock music." --auralwes.blogspot.com
Three years, three cross-country tours, two full length albums, one Daytrotter Session, one NYC Deli Magazine Band of the Month title, and over 200 incredible shows later, Big Tree is still growing and expanding with the release of their second full length album This New Year.
This New Year finds the band expanding on a sound that is “a difficult one to classify, but an easy one to enjoy” (FencePost). It is infectious pop music splashed with colorful harmonies, driven by pulsing rhythms, unique time signatures, group vocals, and poetic quirky imagery. Kaila McIntyre-Bader, Luke Bace, Colin Fahrner, Dan Pirello, and Anna Ghezzi have been called “fiercely talented” (Prarie Dog) and “remarkably captivating” (Magnet Magazine). Big Tree is growing roots on both the East and West Coasts, touring in a vegetable oil van and leaving a trail of blissful celebration in its wake.
City Tribe (EP release show)
A blend of California style rock and folk, City Tribe layers acoustic and electric elements slathered with lush vocal harmonies. The result is music that is both rich and soothing. The expression in their vocals lead the listener across a viscous, dynamic sound-scape woven with sugar sweet harmonies, tasteful bass lines and sparkling electric-guitar vignettes.
Emily Ritz (DRMS and Honeycomb) and Kacey Johansing (Honeycomb) form this foxy experimental-folk duo from Oakland.
