Image: 1577850 More Like Trees is a 3 piece acoustic act, drawing on a range of musical influences to create 'Strum & Bass': acoustic dance music, combining traditional and innovative techniques to create fresh twists on modern genres. With front man Josh Whitehouse on classical Guitar, Matt Whitehouse on Cajon and Lachlan Radford on Double Bass, the core line-up is regularly complimented by collaborations with the best underground talent the world has to offer.

Effortlessly combining elements of Flamenco, Drum & Bass, Classical, Hip Hop, Indie, Dance and Folk, they make their own musical rules, consistently surprising and delighting fans of all genres.

History:

More Like Trees were officially born on March 10th 2011, effortlessly selling out their debut gig at Favela Chic. Their former band, Fran & Josh, was tipped for greatness: it took a slight change in line up and band name to realise the full potential of Josh’s song-writing ability.

In Spring 2011, they began developing their portfolio by recording an album with Tali (the world no.1 female D&B MC) – an acoustic reworking of her current D&B/Dubstep album, ‘Dark Days, High Nights’ released on Audioporn. They performed this at ‘Sun & Bass’ in Sardinia, making them the first live band ever booked for the festival. http://www.audiopornrecords.com/news?id=5373 Summer 2011 was spent touring the festival circuit, largely as part of the Chai Wallah stage, but also supporting Billy Bragg (where by Billy’s own admission, they stole the show).

Following the festival season, collaborations continued with The Local Posse, a collective of like-minded musicians from different backgrounds led by US loop-pedaller, Joe Driscoll and including core members Lazy Habits, MC
Dizraeli, Klumzy Tung (Beardyman’s MC), Bellatrix (world no1 female beatboxer), Reeps One ( two-times UK beat box champ), John Fairhurst and The Drop.www.thelocalposse.com

Being accepted into this circle of seasoned and acclaimed artists served as a training ground with a steep learning curve – they rapidly rose to the challenge to hold their own alongside much bigger names, quickly increasing not only their fan base and vastly improving their stage craft in the process.

It was also through The Local Posse that they met John Hendicott, the genius producer behind their debut album, ‘Roots, Shoots & Leaves, which is due for release in September 2012. http://johnhendicott.com/
