about something in the trees
Something In The Trees is a Seattle based band- Josh Snider (vocals), Larry Hopper (guitar), Adam Sarton (guitar), Matt Hopper (bass), and Eric Hopper (drums). We make music with wide ranging influences.
Josh and Larry played together for several years in The Tailenders, a Seattle-based Indie band. Adam played guitar in The Infamous Gorpses, a Binghamton, NY-Seattle project. Matt is a classically trained bass player, songwriter and arranger who plays and records with a number of bands and projects from jazz to classical to rock to folk and country. Matt is currently The Seattle Rock Orchestra's principal bass player. He also plays with Trip The Light and PGM Trio. Eric has performed with many bands over the years, including Sony recording artist Old Pike, Neena Foundry, Spicket, Lawn Chair Kings, Camerado and The Warhols. He has created and produced a wide range of original music- ambient, country, folk, electronic and experimental music for film soundtracks, educational videos, gallery spaces and websites. Eric and Matt played together previously in Brown Brothers, The Forty Gallon Baptists and The Mumblers.
Matt, Josh, and Larry met while working at Experience Music Project in 2003. They quickly formed a bond and vowed to play music together someday, but the right project was a long time coming. In 2008, Adam made his way from New York to Seattle where he met Josh and Larry, forging another music connection. When Matt's brother, Eric migrated from New York City in 2011 it proved to be the perfect catalyst- Something In The Trees was born. What began as an opportunity to hang out, enjoy mutual musical obsessions, share new ones and build some chops on their respective instruments became a torrent of creative synthesis and songwriting.
Something In The Trees play regularly in the Pacific Northwest. We were featured on the first season of TV program, Band In Seattle. Our self-titled debut CD was released in May, 2014.
