Scattered Trees

For Scattered Trees, Sympathy is a labor of love that almost didn't happen. The band grew up together in the outskirts of Chicago, playing music together in various groups over the years. They became a family in more ways than one, with some of the members sharing last names - albeit for different reasons. Scattered Trees became a staple of Chicago clubs, but as time passed, the band's members were drawn to various parts of the country. Scattered Trees as a band looked all but over. And then, tragedy struck. Lead singer Nate Eiesland's father passed away, and while mourning, Nate picked up his guitar again and started penning a record dedicated to his memory. Those songs became Sympathy.

“Scattered Trees music is the perfect accompaniment to spring. Even the crew's more introspective tracks sound as if they were recorded in the warming heat of the late-afternoon sun, frontman Nate Eiesland casually delivering his words between sips of lemonade from a porch swing.” – The Chicago Tribune

“…recalls Jeff Tweedy and Dean Wareham sharing a taxi in the wee small hours.” – My Old Kentucky Blog
