Sea of Trees: Fletcher and The Hendersons

(SwordPaw Music, 2011):

“It’s a book!”

“No, it’s a CD!”

Stop. You’re both right – it’s a book and a CD!

Albany’s own Sea of Trees has forged one of those fab, age-old, multi-media experiences with their new release, “Sea of Trees Presents Fletcher and the Hendersons, Part One.”

It’s something like a children’s book for all-ages. The book chronicles the adventures of a young girl named Florence, whose scientist-father goes exploring in the mountains and never returns. With the help of a ghost named Fletcher, the intrepid Florence goes on a dangerous journey to search for her father.

Parslow Builds Musical Bridges from Nippertown to…

Can’t we all just get along?

Maybe with the help of low-key, DIY local music promoter Kristen Parslow we can. She’s put together a show on Saturday night that features Atlanta’s the Nerd Parade with a pair of fine local bands – Sea of Trees and Rain in Spain. The show gets underway at 8pm Saturday at Franklin’s Tower in Albany.

Parslow is big on local talent. “I was impressed with the Albany scene and all the support this town offers to the arts. So I felt obligated to step up,” she explains. “Bands are put off, intimidated or insecure about setting up gigs. We had an incredible opportunity to use this to our benefit with all proceeds going into the pockets of the people with the talent and skill. I have never asked for a dime.”

Real Good for Free: Sea of Trees, the Blisterz & Hour of Need @ the Bayou Cafe, 2/11/10

February 9th, 2010, 10:05 am by Greg

Prepping for the upcoming release of their current album-in-the-works which is tentatively titled “Rebels Without Applause,” the Blisterz will be sharing the stage with Sea of Trees and Hour of Need for the next installment of Original Rock Night at Jillian’s the Bayou Cafe in Albany at 8pm Thursday (February 11). Admission is free.

UPDATE: Jillian’s is apparently in the midst of building a new – and bigger – stage, but construction isn’t completed just yet, so Thursday’s Original Rock Night has been moved to the Bayou. Admission is still free.

Sounds like a good place to stop by after the “Hearts 4 Haiti” benefit at the Palace Theatre just down the block on that same night.

NAME: Dylan Palazzo
INSTRUMENT: Vocals/ Guitar

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … The first tape I remember buying with my own money was “Sailing the Seas of Cheese” by Primus. Earlier than that, I have a distinct memory of convincing my dad to buy me a Twisted Sister record. This stands out in my mind because I remember my mom being so opposed to the purchase. The cover of the record was a picture of Dee Snider eating a raw turkey leg.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT I EVER SAW WAS … My family and I didn’t really go to a lot of concerts when I was a kid. It wasn’t until I was in high school that my friends and I started to go out to shows. I remember seeing Fugazi and Jawbox at Roseland in the city, and it was amazing. That was the first time I remember being really blown away by a live show.
