About BIG TREES: BIG TREES is the brainchild of Bostonian guitarist, singer and songwriter Rick Frauton. In 2007 he began writing songs and assembling a band of like-minded bohemians. Rick soon met drummer and co-conspirator David Fried and the two hit it off with an undeniable musical rapport. In 2009 Samuel Rulon-Miller joined BIG TREES on upright bass to flesh out the rhythm section. “We love making music together,” says Rick. “Each of us has a responsibility to hold down the groove without overplaying. We value aural space just as much as the notes that divide it, so it is our mutual goal to create that space and allow the songs to breathe.” Cellist Yacov Aviv also joined BIG TREES in 2009 to contribute his tonal bliss to their raw, textured sound.

The result is a unique blend of thoughtful lyrics set to simple melodies and supported by rich layers of organic instrumentation, all with an undying devotion to the almighty groove. BIG TREES' genre-bending sound incorporates elements of folk-rock, reggae and jazz to form an eclectic style all their own. Plans for 2009 include writing, recording, collaborating, rehearsing, and performing. Keep an ear out for BIG TREES as they embark upon the Boston music scene.
