About the Band
A self-described tumultuous indie rock quartet, Connecticut’s Bonsai Trees was founded in 2011 by members James MacPherson and Nick Sokol. Based in Hartford, the band is rounded out by Larry Sniscak and Dan Spence, solidifying their energetic, yet introspective, lineup. Having accumulated nearly 150,000 Spotify streams on their current discography and maintaining a seemingly relentless touring schedule, Bonsai Trees is everything but slow-moving.
Often categorized as indie-rock with distinct traces of emo influence, Bonsai Trees has been traveling the United States in support of their most recent independent LP Learn To Grow (released May 3rd, 2019), their third full length album. An energetic and melodic 10-track collection, Learn To Grow is filled to the brim with memorable hooks and turbulent emotion. With extensive North American touring history (and an unprecedented catalog of releases), the band has been laser-focused on recording a new EP, a body of work which they believe is ‘bigger and better’ than all prior releases. Although a release date is yet to be announced on the upcoming EP, Bonsai Trees is poised to keep all eyes on them.
