“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. It seems that people everywhere are discovering The Giving Tree Band and when they do, a bond is established.
“These rockers cultivate a sound that mirrors their namesake, with soulful vocals and heartfelt musicianship that hearkens back to classic American Folk. In a genre where honesty is key, The Giving Tree Band gives their audiences their all,” writes CityBeat Cincinnati. The Giving Tree Band is not reinventing but simply reuniting rock and roll. With their down-home style, they emphasize the virtue in virtuosity – playing each note with integrity, each part with humility, each song with honesty, and each show with gratitude. The most common word among all who share the experience is “undeniable” in regards to the chemistry on stage, the energy in the room, and the feeling that something special is happening. With a rare combination of stirring musicianship and exemplary songwriting, the GTB wheel is in full spin, and like their heroes before them, it’s also on fire.
