Alternative / Pop / Rap
Sporting neon colored ensembles, a bowl haircut, and the widest boot cut jeans you’ve ever seen, Oliver Tree is the alternative-pop meme king. While Tree quite possibly has the biggest personality we’ve ever seen, his tracks are undeniably clever and equally catchy.
Tree began playing the piano when he was 3-years-old, and in middle school he started to explore his love for songwriting. He quickly discovered his passion for music and sang and played guitar in a rock band, then later started DJing in high school. He eventually was the opening DJ for artists like Skrillex and Zedd. But he soon transitioned into the quirky singer/rapper he is today and caught the attention of Atlantic Records who eventually signed him. Being supported by a big label was Tree’s dream, all he wanted was to see his larger than life visions become reality, and he knew Atlantic Records would be able to help him out.
His debut EP Alien Boy, is full of electronic rap and alternative pop tracks which are unconventional and probably unlike anything you’ve heard before. But what is most commendable is Tree’s creative control and vision for his unmistakable brand. A prime example of Tree’s dedication to his artistry is the fact that he performed all of his own stunts in the music video for “All That x Alien Boy” and he practiced monster truck jumping for five months. Tree has performed at major festivals like Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, and as a special guest at Coachella. Following his debut EP, Tree has toured with Louis the Child and Skizzy Mars, Hobo Johnson.
