EN Although Seed to Tree official began life in 2010, it was in 2011 when their popularity grew and the band virtually became resident at Luxembourg’s Irish pub The Pyg, proving popular with punters and triggering a buzz around them.
It was then that Seed to Tree turned over a new leaf becoming more serious in their approach, their act, song-writing and performing bigger gigs to a more diverse public.
It all paid off, as the band recorded their first EP released September 2012. The year ended triumphantly with the release of the band's first single "Broken Down" that went on to spend an amazing 16 weeks in the Luxembourg national charts.
2013 proved to be an incredible year for the band as they played virtually all the major Luxembourg festivals including Food For Your Senses, Rock um Knuedler, e-Lake, Mess For Masses and the biggest of the all - main stage of Rock-A-Field.
At the end of August 2014 Seed to Tree went to La Chapelle Studios in Belgium to record their first album “Wandering” released at the Rockhal in 2015 in front of 800 people!
2015 achievements include the first single Take My Hand from the album, which received great reviews. Recently the band clinched an international distribution deal with Believe Digital, a major international online music distributor, resulting in a rapidly growing audience in Germany.
And now it is time for a second single from the album! The release of Until It Gets Better together with a video produced by Ben Andrews will be celebrated during a rather special concert at Rotondes!
She’s is from Frankfurt, called Linda Bender and plays guitar, drums, marimba and percussion. He hails from Mannheim, named Chris Schillinger and plays guitar, bass, accordion and percussion. Together they’re Bender & Schillinger. Influenced by Wallis Bird, Frank Turner and Dota Kehr they founded the duo in Mainz back in 2010. They are surprising with their atmospheric and sophisticated sounds as well as the variety of different instruments used. In a symbolic duo of voices they sing in German and English without losing the beauty of the melody. They describe their style as “singer-songwriter plus” The love to debunk the cliché that songwriter music belongs around a camp fire and not on the stage!
