Lost In The Trees

Lost in the Trees is a look into the less accessible side of Ari Picker’s songwriting. Unlike much of his back catalogue with The Never and the B-sides, Lost in the Trees explores the world of dark orchestral folk-pop. His self-titled first release was the product of several years of home recording, layering track after track of complex pianos, strings, samples, woodwinds, guitars and vocals to his disarming and radiant compositions.

Lost in the Trees is a look into the less accessible side of Ari Picker’s songwriting. Unlike much of his back catalogue with The Never and the B-sides, Lost in the Trees explores the world of dark orchestral folk-pop. His self-titled first release was the product of several years of home recording, layering track after track of complex pianos, strings, samples, woodwinds, guitars and vocals to his disarming and radiant compositions. Ari’s traditional pop sensibilities are far from absent on the record as his dynamic voice and occasional four part harmonies effortlessly color the strange orchestrations. The record also features contributions from many of Ari's musical friends from bands including The Never, the B-sides, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Io and Vibrant Green.

After moving to Boston to attend the Berklee College of Music, Ari met a wealth of energetic music students who were happy to join Lost in the Trees as the backing band for Ari's compositions. Now the Lost in the Trees live show could feature the lush string arrangements that appear on the recordings. The band helped Ari record the 7-song EP Time Taunts Me over the course of a semester. This set of songs are hi-fi, present and ornate, while still recorded in a bedroom. The EP will see release from Trekky Records on March 20, 2007. « hide
