Hot off the back of the release of their debut single, Falling From Trees are set to release their brand new EP 'Sleepless Nights' on Friday June 1, 2018.
Based in Norwich, the band comprises of Rebecca White on lead vocals, Leo White on lead guitar and vocals, Adam White on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Joey Scampion on bass guitar and backing vocals and Sam Ball on drums.
Formed in late 2013, originally as an acoustic three-piece, the White siblings came together to formalise their musical endeavours, combining folk and blues influences with soulful, jazz-tinged vocals and melodies.
Under this formation they released two EPs, both of which received considerable airplay and critical acclaim. They gigged relentlessly during this time which saw them become regulars in the Norwich music scene which ultimately lead to a support slot for Mark Flanagan of Jools Holland fame at the Southwold Arts Festival and a set for BBC Voices at the Lord Mayor's Celebration.
In 2017, Falling From Tress expanded to include Joey Scampion and Sam Bell. This inspired their previously folk inspired sound to take a more rock orientated approach.
