Lost In The Trees a maverick collective from Chapel Hill, North Carolina helmed by composer and songwriter Ari Picker. The band merges dramatic symphonic elements with the soaring melodies of American folk and modern pop, creating a sound that is simultaneously intimate and sonically ambitious.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best groups I've heard in a long time August 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I heard "Walk Around the Lake" last week on my local NPR station, and I was blown away. (I had not heard of them previously). The song went through me like few ever have. A few days later I downloaded the entire CD and I was not disappointed. The singer has a beautiful, crisp voice, and the way they use so many different instruments to create original music is amazing. I haven't listened to music in a while because I haven't heard much that moves me lately, but this CD got me back into it. LITT is what I consider truly artistic. I'm so glad I found them.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT ALBUM! January 16, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I saw Lost in the Trees perform this album live, with full orchestra, and what amazed me was their unity and sound. The versatility of all the players with the instruments was incredible to watch, and all the different sounds coming together--it was like looking out on a crowd of protesters, fighting for a common cause with their beauty radiating from the confluence of their diverse persons. I don't think they were protesting, but from the similar power of the music, there was a perceptibly cathartic effect on the audience, who clapped as if they had all felt the struggle and wonder with life and understanding that the music and lyrics center around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Record August 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have been listening to Lost In The Trees for a couple of years now and have seen them live countless times. When I heard that they were going to re-release their album, "All Alone In An Empty House" on their new label, Anti Records, I didn't know what to think. The original Trekky Records release was one of my favorite albums and I found myself fearful of change. However, I bought it from a local record shop the day it came out and have been listening to it frequently over the last couple of days. On my first listen, I had mixed feelings. I loved the two new tracks, "A Room Where Your Paintings Hang" and "We Burn The Leaves," but I found myself attached to some of the older mixes of the familiar tracks. However, upon further listens, this album has truly revealed itself to me. It is beautiful, haunting, memorizing. Ari and the gang have created a masterpiece. This album deserves more recognition than it's getting and I hope that the band's switch to Anti Records will allow countless others to discover the beauty that is Lost In The Trees.

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I live in Raleigh, and Lost in the Trees are from just up the road, so why on EARTH did I not get around to listening to them until recently? I see this as a grave error on my part. Ari Picker has a background in orchestral/soundtrack scoring, with a degree from Berklee School of Music in Boston (right down the road from New England Conservatory, a school I used to attend). While that is certainly an impressive pedigree, I wouldn't care if he didn't produce such rich, lush landscapes of sound which support his heartachingly cutting yet touching lyrics. I started listening to All Alone in an Empty House casually a few weeks ago, knowing I'd be seeing them live at the new Motorco venue in nearby Durham, NC soon. The album is part soundtrack, part indie rock, part chamber music, part symphony, and yet it all seems to make sense together. It alludes heavily to Ari's difficult early life (there was a recent story in the local Independent Weekly which told more specifically about his history), but you don't necessarily need to rake that ride with him to appreciate this album musically. I started listening *not* realizing the pain inherent in it, and as I've listened more, I've developed a more complex relationship and understanding of the lyrics. At every step down the rabbit hole, it is a worthwhile trip. I could tell you a lot about their live performance, but honestly, that would probably put me well up over the word limits here. Ari and his supporting musicians are intense, ethereal, and somewhat serious yet you never feel like you have to keep quiet like you're at a classical concert. The rock venue works well. The live show is a ride, and I recommend taking it if you can. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in the Awesome August 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
What's that? You've never heard of Lost in the Trees. Come with me and we'll go on a little trip into the land of music that's better than what you're listening to now...

My friend and I both stumbled onto Lost in the Trees whilst shopping at Amoeba in Hollywood. "What's that?" we asked ourselves. "A mini orchestra? A darling, unpretentious singer with a gorgeous voice? An ensemble with talent? Absurd!" No, dear readers, it exists. Lost in the Trees creates a sound that is nothing short of emotionally exhilarating.

While many groups and singers today build a sound on the concept of distraction, Lost in the Trees is about precision. They know exactly how to describe emotions that in less adroit hands have been ground into cliche. While normal shows and normal music plays AT the audience, Lost in the the Trees plays WITH the audience. It's a cumulative experience; you'll find yourself inspired, your brain thinking more clearly, your senses heightened as if you had suddenly been dealt a swift blow to your nerve endings.

The actual band members are some of the kindest people I've met (granted, I live in LA, so it's exciting when someone puts down their cigarette to talk to me) and their talent is mind-blowing. I mean, come on, Emma plays the glockenspiel, French horn, autoharp, drums, and sings. So, unless you can do the same thing, I suggest you buy the album.

In short, Lost in the Trees feels like flying. And once you start listening to them, you'll want to fly forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternative meets Classical
Great album. Intelligent song structure, deep sad lyrics. The integration of the classical movements/pieces work well, does not seem force. Read more

The above title may sound strange but the band pulls it off well. If you like Iron and Wine, Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver, you will want to at least check out the samples.
