Canada
Indie/Pop Rock
Sometimes you have to step away to realize what you really have. Such was the case for Victoria indie darlings Towers and Trees, who less than a year into a hiatus precipitated by new babies, cross-country moves and career changes, found themselves back together where it all started, this time with acclaimed producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Said The Whale) in tow. The goal: to create music that celebrates life’s biggest twists and turns instead running from them, because as they say, the best things in life are worth fighting for.

Towers and Trees has always been a heart-driven project – from their scrappy debut and its viral single Montreal to the heady anthems of 2015’s The West Coast. Every song is packed with an authenticity and earnestness that is increasingly rare in this digital age. Their newest release Head Down / Heart Up is no exception, boasting anthemic hooks, poignant lyrics, infectious energy and all that aforementioned heart.

Towers and Trees first made waves in 2013, emerging from Victoria as a Zone @ 91.3 Band of the Month and later a Top 20 finalist in Music BC’s prestigious Peak Performance Project (the largest artist development program in Canada at the time). Their music has played on commercial and CBC radio throughout Canada. They have toured Canada and performed notable showcases at Canadian Music Week, Break Out West, Rifflandia and Rock The Shores festivals, Khatsahlano Fest (Vancouver) and many more.
