Band Bio

Life In A Tree was just nominated by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) as the 2016 'Best Alternative Rock Band' & 'Best Female Vocalist' along with nominations in 2015 as Rising Stars’.  This prodigious group of youngsters have been performing all around the Midwest since 8th grade, mastering their catchy hooks, ingenious songwriting and diverse vocals that have set this Wisconsin based teen-band apart.  They have created a unique blend of emo-indie rock and are currently in studio recording their third album. This group of youngsters got their start all the way back in the second grade when guitarists Tyler Miller & DJ Underwood started lessons and playing live together. After playing for their elementary school, the local newspaper described them as “so gifted, no other music was required to augment what they do”. They later solidified the entire group while in middle school, adding Bonham-style drummer Jimmy Cooper and fourth generational singer Molly Lutz. Still incredibly young but with musical talents well-beyond their years, the band began to impress audiences of all-ages while playing live across Wisconsin. With their fan-base expanding daily, they continued to write & rehearse; perfecting their songs that would later be the musical backbone of their future two albums. While looking further to distinguish & diversify their melodies they added keyboardist Andrew Conley (son of a long-time local professional keyboardist). They went on to perform several times at Summerfest (aka..World Largest Music Festival) as one of the youngest bands ever to play there.  Also, performing large shows at Harley Davidson’s 110th anniversary, Budweiser Pavilion, Summer Sounds Concert series, State Fair, Steel Bridge Songfest, Oktoberfest, Trek Bicycles’ Pro-Biking event and many other festivals and venues. Their mature live performances and memorable songs helped them bring home several accolades, including winning the (adult) Battle of The Bands at Miramar Theatre as well as the Oktoberfest/BMO Harris Bank 'Battle of Bands' contest. Their songs are direct and appealing, yet showcase a sophistication that goes way beyond their years.  After seeing them perform live once, you will agree their age becomes irrelevant except as a good press angle.
