White Apple Tree is a tree…nothing more…nothing less. A tree of music for all to enjoy. Melodic, moody, intimate and uplifting. Keyboards, guitars, and vocals are the main seed we plant and the sound grows from there. White Apple Tree consist of two young brothers and a friend with a desire and passion to play music for the world. They have millions of views on their YouTube videos and over 2,550,000 plays, 2,500,000 profile views on Myspace and almost 45,000 friends. They are often compared to Shiny Toy Guns, Metric, Coldplay or The Faint, blending blasting dance beats with melodic piano and vocal melodies. The live show is a high energy performance that brings everybody to the floor.
They have performed with acts such as Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Shiny Toy Guns, Walter Meego, Dan Black, Edward Sharp, Midnight Juggernauts and more and recently won San Diego’s Music Award for Sound Recording of the Year 2010 and recently won Hollywood Music and Media Award the Best Commercial Advertising with Passed Out in the Whistle Blackcomb commercial with over 250,000 views.
White Apple Tree has songs licensed with two snowboard videos, a surf video, The Hills, Jersey Shore, Gossip Girls and most recently in the new KMS video shot in Hollywood with the song Clarity.
