ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The band Trees was formed in 1972 when singer/songwriters Lindsay Tomasic and Jesse Fitzpatrick joined forces in Michigan’s upper peninsula. Lindsay and Jesse began playing local clubs, eventually expanding the band to include singer Wendy Jonas, flute player Carolyn Bernloehr and guitarist John Bromley. The band performed regularly at the only vegetarian restaurant in the area, Funkey’s Karma Kafe, and at Calumet’s The Salty Dog.

Lindsay, Jesse and Carolyn moved to Ann Arbor Michigan in 1979 and Trees took on two new band members - bass player Randy Tessier and drummer Don Kuhli. Quickly becoming established, the popular folk/rock band became weekly performers at Mr. Flood’s Party and The Blind Pig, and they were often featured at Ann Arbor’s major acoustic venue, The Ark. They also opened for Kenny Rankin at the club Chances Are and performed at Detroit’s Renaissance Center.

While in Ann Arbor Jesse and Lindsay were given a grant by the state of Michigan to write, produce and record an album. They spent a year of their time working with mentally handicapped children. The album, called Let It Out, was used by teachers state wide to help these children learn basic skills.

After fifteen years working together as a band, Lindsay decided to move to Los Angeles, expanding her horizons as a singer, songwriter and producer. Jesse moved to upper Michigan, opening a music club in downtown Calumet and expanding her creative wings by working as a stained glass artist. The duo got together from time to time over the years just “for the hell of it” or to play an occasional gig.

In April of 2006 Trees was contacted to perform a reunion concert at The Ark for a benefit for Habitat for Humanity. The opportunity to see old friends, play music and just hang out was irresistible. The reunion in June was a resounding success, both for Habitat, and for Trees. Inspired by the requests at the concert, the band has now recorded a CD.

To quote a friend, “Some things take time to mature and be ready for consumption, like fine wines for instance!” With that said, after thirty-four years in the making, we bring you our first CD, ripe and ready to consume!”

Always a fan
I used to see Trees in Ann Arbor. I now live in Colorado and was delighted to find this website with their music....I was wondering what had happened to them. I was a musician on the scene at the time...I am sure they will remember the coffeehouse in Detroit. Glad to see you are still thriving. Best wishes! Your music was always uplifting and inspiring.

A Beautiful, Soulful Collection
I'm already a fan of Lindsay Tomasic and was excited to learn of her collaboration with Jesse Fitzpatrick. This album was truly worth waiting for and I hope to hear more from Trees.

Wow, outstanding!
What a delightful experience. I was really moved by this cd. There’s so much there. The voices of Jesse and Lindsay are powerful, both together and alone. Like the wind they pull you up and along on the most captivating journey. Top notch musicianship. From the fun, upbeat “She’s Your Best Friend” through “Cherokee” which creates a sense of longing and transports the listener to a different time, to the sweet, simple, heart filled “Please Come Home”. It’s a must have. Way to go!

A timeless treasure. Great harmonies, beautiful production.
Wow! This is an excellent album! Some of the finest musicianship and vocals I've heard in a long time! I highly recommend this album to anyone who enjoys great vocals and guitar work. I'll keep this one in my car, on my ipod and home stereo too. Top shelf music! Good going, Trees!
