Marcus Friman, singer/songwriter behind Land of Trees, has understood and cultivated this way of living as a defining trait of his indie-folk solo project.
Just like sitting in the middle of the forest and letting its active stillness wrap around you, Land of Trees' music proposes a natural simplicity devoid of bombastic instrumental arrangements where acoustic sounds support the poetry of the vocals as the center of the listening experience.
Land of Trees was originally formed as a three-piece act featuring Daniel Joona Bergström (drums/percussion and bass) and Pontus Edfeldt Kjellström (banjo & acoustic guitar), the band released the EP “Patient & Quiet” early in 2016. The production included “Get Rid of Your Ghosts”.
Early in 2017 the act parted ways and transformed into Friman’s solo project as he went on to sign a record deal with Rexius Records.
His first two singles with the label have gathered about half a million streams among international audiences in USA, Latin America and Europe. They’ve been been featured on alexrainbirdMusic, Indie Music Mag and Savage Thrills, among others.
