Ground-breaking musical collective Lost in the Trees have released a live video for “Garden” from their performance at Duke Reynolds Theatre. The video was taken December 7, 2012 at The Reynolds Industries Theatre as part of the acclaimed Duke Performances 2012 season where the band was joined by a chamber orchestra — 12 strings, harp, piano, and percussion — to fully realize the band’s arrangements in an ample, resonant hall. Fans can check out the video now on BrooklynVegan.com here.
In addition, Lost In The Tress have announced several upcoming East Coast dates including a performance at the renowned Lincoln Center of Performing Arts in New York as part of the center’s American Songbook series on February 28th. The band will perform in continued support of their acclaimed album A Church That Fits Our Needs, which Wall Street Journal named 2012’s “album of the year”. The band will also be debuting new material on these upcoming dates before heading into the studio to record their forthcoming album.

Lost in the Trees is an inventive ensemble from Chapel Hill, North Carolina helmed by composer and songwriter Ari Picker. The band merges the dramatic symphonic elements of classical music with the accessibility of American folk and modern pop, creating a sound that is simultaneously intimate and sonically ambitious. A Church That Fits Our Needs is a work of vaulting ambition, a cathedral built on loss and transformation. In 2009 Picker lost his mother, an artist in her own right, when she took her own life. With the new record he set about transforming the events into a musical tribute. While this might sound like a somber affair, it is anything but. The group utilizes rhythm as its own emotional language, never losing the propulsive inevitability and vitality of great rock and roll.
