Scattered Trees is a young group of artists who grew up together in the outskirts of Chicago, often playing music. Some of the members share last names, albeit for different reasons. They are the kind of friends who can separate and come back together at ease, entertained by a constellation of conversations and the familiarity of each other’s voices.
As is the case with any ambitious set of individuals with aspirations beyond their hometown, as they grew, Scattered Trees spent more and more time apart until it seemed the norm. Just when it appeared life had separated them for good, tragedy struck, a death, and Scattered Trees came back together, recording an album emblazed with the sincerity and beauty that only the most terrible of times can yield.
