"A traveling band must be able to channel their hometown and aura into a space. It's sometimes difficult to conjure the backroads and nature so often sung about in Americana music. The Giving Tree Band has mastered this quintessential aspect of performing live. They are able to accomplish what great writers have long proven; it is possible, with the right story, to transport whole audiences to new worlds." Appoet.org
It is said that in any endeavor, the journey is the true reward. For this band, the outlook matters more than the outcome. Yet, even with this policy, The Giving Tree Band has been steadily making their way towards the head of a classy class of young American songwriters and performers and consistently winning over each scene in the school. People everywhere are discovering The Giving Tree Band and when they do, a bond is established.
While the GTB was on tour last summer with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and again at ESMZ's first Big Top Festival in Los Angeles, alternative and indie rock audiences were raptured into what has been described by Relix Magazine as the "folksy bliss of a group playing as one." They enchanted crowds with their ability to reference classic Rock 'N Roll themes and drive them to a moxie that's "new and refreshing" (Paste Magazine).
