Lost In The Trees Kick Off June Tour Dates With Benefit Show For The Jed Foundation

The acclaimed musical collective LOST IN THE TREES has just announced a series of North American live dates in support of their acclaimed new album A Church That Fits Our Needs. Included will be a very special benefit performance in support of The Jed Foundation, the nation's leading organization working to reduce emotional distress and prevent suicide among America's 20 million college students. The event will occur on June 7th at Gotham Hall in New York City.

The Jed Foundation first contacted the band after one of the founders heard LOST IN THE TREES' singer-songwriter Ari Picker on the NPR radio showhttp://www.npr.org/2012/03/25/149226471/lost-in-the-trees-a-golden-memorial-of-orchestral-folk"> All Things Considered being interviewed about the group's powerful new record A Church That Fits Our Needs and how it was directly inspired by Picker's own mother's suicide.

Picker commented, "Mental illness has been a tall hurdle in my life, and I've needed a lot of help to get to a healthy place. Having the support from an organization like the Jed Foundation can make all the difference. I'm so thankful to all who helped me along the way, and I admire all the people who are making the steps towards a healthier place in their own lives."

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.
