Giants in the Trees to play live show
June 28, 2018
Giants in the Trees will play a free live show in Long Beach July 7, 2 p.m., on the main stage at Veterens Field.
Giants in the Trees members are Jillian Raye, Erik Friend, Ray Prestegard and Krist Novoselic.
They all met at the Skamokawa Grange and, after an impromptu acoustic jam, made a call for another, albeit louder, session.
Having the hall to themselves, Novoselic joined musicians Ray Prestegard, Jillian Raye and Erik Friend in wasting no time. This group of players wrote two songs in the first two days of playing, Sasquatch and Center of the Earth.
Feeling they were at home with each other, a new Rock band came together. Giants in the Trees started playing live in the area. Their first show was a benefit for the old Grange hall.
It took a year of playing, experimenting, and fun times for Giants in the Trees to compile their 12-song record.
Every tune on the record has its own personality. There are different sounds and rhythms, producing a real mixed bag of songs. One tune can have a waltz accordion and slide, while the next a heavy fuzz bass under a deep Electronica groove. There is melody from start to finish.
Currently, Giants in the Trees are playing shows in the Pacific Northwest. Their self-titled album is also self-released and available on your preferred online music service.
