Wavy Trees

If Wayne’s World and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure collided in an alternate reality House party, Los Angeles based Wavy Trees would be the band playing in the backyard. The cosmic bartender at this gathering would be mixing swaggering hard rock riffs with the attitude and energy of garage-punk, dumping it into a shaker and pouring out a potent cocktail of we-could-give-a-fuck fun. With the release of debut track “I Wanna Go Out” they are declaring themselves to the world with the perfect anthem for the pent-up frustration that so many are feeling after being in pandemic lockdown for more than a year.

According to the band’s Zack “Moondog” Smith (Lead Vocals/Guitar/ Piano): “We all met by complete fate! I met Brian (Duke – Bass) at a house party in North Hollywood & immediately asked myself “Why am I not in a band with this guy?” But it turned out Brian was already in a band with Jason (Espirito – Guitar) so the timing was off. Fast forward a year or so later I met Jack (Gallner – Drums) at El Tejano restaurant in NOHO & we hit it off talking about all the music we were jamming to at the time & ended up writing songs in his bedroom within the first couple weeks of meeting. From the moment I met Jack I knew we were meant to be in a band together as well, it was fate!”

He continues” as we started our initial recording sessions in June of 2019 at NRG Studios, we had a bass player flake on us & I immediately thought of Brian. He was in a life insurance meeting at a Starbucks but bailed to come join us for the session & killed it! After that 1st session he told me that Jason would be perfect for the project on guitar… I was secretly hoping that would come up because Brian & Jay are a dynamic duo that were born to play together. A week later we went to a rehearsal space on my birthday & that was the day the Wavy Trees was officially “born” as a band.

Wavy Trees is:
