Voices in the Trees began as the mellow songwriter project of singer/guitarist Seth Richardson and bassist Gary Brown, but from the beginning the group was destined for something even more awesome. Gary recruited the buy-one-get-one-free pair of Mollie Harrison on the viola and drummer Patrick Harrison to fill out the line-up, and later Bradford Sims was recruited on the guitar to allow Seth more vocal freedom. Such a collection of strongly opinionated, creative minds from such varied musical backgrounds forged a multifaceted, dynamic blend of raw alternative rock and folksy, world-music influences that cannot be duplicated.
After several months of serious gigging, tireless rehearsals, and a rough demo to refine their sound, Voices in the Trees entered the studio to record their first album: The Death of Viola, a long running project and an important learning experience for everyone involved that the band is pleased to finally release to their hungry fan base.
But just hearing the album is not truly experiencing Voices in the Trees, as the recordings pale in comparison to the live show.
With the band firmly established for over a year now, Voices in the Trees has begun branching out to play shows outside of the Birmingham area and create converts as far as their sound will reach.
