Tiny Tree

Self-described as “a two-man army of riffs and thunder,” Tiny Tree’s music is rooted in heavy metal and post punk/hardcore. While they may be just a duo, they create a cacophony of sound and power that is undeniably memorable. Relying just as heavily on ambience, atmosphere, and tone as it does complexity and aggression, Tiny Tree set themselves apart from other bands by busting through the boundaries of expectations and reaching for new heights with every fresh composition.

Case in point: drummer Paul Jensen and guitarist Addison Eilers actually like to think of their union as less of a band than it is a sonic collective, with compositions heavy in feedback, thick guitar chords, changing dynamics, tribal like drums, experimentalism, and strong vocals. Formed in Muskegon, Mich., a little over a year ago, Tiny Tree are gaining a reputation as a band that wants to buck the trend and create a more abstract, sonically pleasing sound to perform to the masses.

You can see for yourself what the buzz is all about when they stop by The Ruin on Feb. 7. Opening the show are Grand Rapids-based rockers Crooked Heart and Fort Wayne newcomers Self Sabotage. It promises to be a night of new music, discovery, and an all-around great listening experience.
