Six-song Food For Thought EP produced by Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Crosby Stills & Nash, Melissa Etheridge) will be available digitally on May 4th.

Infantree is a Los Angeles-based band which formed in 2007 with Alex Vojdani (vocals, lyrics, guitar, keys) Matt Kronish (vocals, lyrics, guitar, banjo) and Donald Fisher (vocals, lyrics, keys, bass, mandolin, guitar) as high school students in Calabasas, CA before solidifying the line-up in 2008 with the addition of drummer Jordan Avesar who provided not only a serious backbeat, but also a psychological glue.

Alex, Matt and Donald began playing guitar and writing songs in elementary school. They naturally picked up other instruments through jamming with older musicians that would not relinquish the ax. There's a shifting, track to track, from one writer/lead singer to the next, and who plays which of nearly a dozen instruments. Yet, there's a cohesive, rooted sound, to Infantree that completely belies their youth.

2009/2010 has been quite notable for the band, their song, “Overflowin'" from the self-released Tree-P has received spins on KCRW's prestigious Morning Becomes Eclectic, the band opened shows for Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Portugal the Man and Daniel Lanois' Black Dub performed at Outside Lands in San Francisco, the Bridge School Benefit concert and the recent SXSW Music Conference. The band also managed to play more than 200 shows on Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade; one of which was filmed for GorillAcoustic.com.

With a full-length Vapor Records release in the works for this fall, Food For Thought will whet music lovers appetite with its six-prong platter of sensory candy; carefully selected morsels to contemplatively ingest underneath their shady branches. So dig in, climb up and experience a different view of what's around you.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
