The Trees of Life, based in the Orlando suburb of Lake Mary, FL, spent their early days gaining traction with local music fans, and are quickly evolving into a regionally-respected live act with worldwide digital distribution. From supporting roles opening for touring behemoths such as The Original Wailers and The Supervillians to headlining roles at the 2017 Sanford Music Festival and the 2017 Daytona Beach Original Music Festival, the band’s strength and versatility as a live act has paved the way for the success of their early studio releases, which are now available through most of the popular distribution channels.
The band name is derived from the tree of life, which typically symbolizes the connection between all living things and all forms of creation, and which has been adapted to represent the band’s positive message of hope and unity. “We wanted to come up with a name that means something to everyone—regardless of whether or not people know its significance to us personally. The name “Trees of Life” held a unique meaning to everyone who saw it before anyone ever heard the music behind it. We thought that was pretty resonant, so it stuck.” said Smoof, the lead vocalist of TOL, when asked where the name came from.
This band not only connects onstage, but has a strong relationship off stage that creates a positive energy as a group which others can feel and involve themselves in. Each band member has his own history of how he got to this point in his music career, and how they got together. Their musical style is a fusion of Reggae, Rock and Jam bands that have influenced each member individually to create the bigger picture that you see performed on stage. From Dispatch, Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, State Radio, Citizen Cope, Pepper, Peter Tosh, James Brown, The Roots, Sly and The Family Stone, Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Fugees. “To be honest, we gain inspiration all around us.” said Skylar, the Drummer of TOL.
