For Trees and Birds

For Trees & Birds is a New York City based Indie Rock and Contemporary Jazz band that blends improvisation and rhythmic structure to create a “choir over groove” aesthetic. They are influenced by a wide range of artists such as Björk, Bill Frisell, Dirty Projectors, The second Miles Davis Quintet (1964-66), Radiohead, and the Bill Evans Trio (LaFaro & Motian). While the band’s sizable repertoire of original music (with a cover tossed in here or there) proves to be eclectic, For Trees & Birds is a group well rooted in jazz and alternative rock. They perform frequently in the New York City area, and have toured in California and Florida.
