Long-time friends and collaborators, Golden Tree Story has an intuitive approach when playing, one that has developed through years of improvising, listening, and performing. Seattle’s active jazz and folk musicians - they’ve performed (in duets, trios, quartets, etc.) at just about every type of gig you can imagine.
Their unique sound comes from rich backgrounds in classical, jazz, rock, folk, funk, and latin music. At live shows, their sets are a merging of inspired original songs, stellar instrumental playing, and fresh interpretations of music from folk traditions.
On June 2nd, 2013, they released a new EP, "Beyond". All recordings are available direct from the artist on Bandcamp:
The Golden Tree Story is:
Cynthia Marie, piano, vocals
Rachel Erin Sage, fiddle, vocals
Cameron Peace, guitar, effects
Birch Pereira, bass, vocals
Dave Bush, drums, percussion
"Golden Tree Story is like a fine elixir, a tonic for the soul. This music contains compassion and careful listening, as well as an inner joy that manifests in carefully constructed melodies. One ear is tuned to tradition, the other to the future, and from their instruments and voices comes a beautiful song. Recommended for anyone in need of rejuvenation."
