Marytre (pronounced "merry tree") is a riff heavy, feedback-screaming trio from Charleston, SC consisting of James George on vocals/lead guitar, Donny Bastian on bass guitar and David Dietze on drums/harmony vocals.
This post-grunge (for lack of better words) three-piece has a sound that is heavy while at the same time melodic. The members’ musical influences vary but consistently complement each other. Collectively, Marytre's influences include Nirvana, Black Sabbath, the Melvins, Foo Fighters, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Metallica, Faith No More, etc. etc. etc. - far too many to list.
Marytre originally formed in 1996, founded by James George, guitar/vocals and Josh Lipscomb, bass (and whomever they could get on drums). As for the current incarnation of the band, Marytre started actively doing shows in October 2011.
As of now Marytre continues to move forward in establishing themselves across the region. Just looking to ride the way as far as it'll carry them! The hope is that the new album "merry tree" will prove to be the springboard to the next level...
