LISTEN: Lone Tree Unveils New Single "Holding On"

From Nairobi to Nashville, Lone Tree is creating a vibrant new sound that attempts to explore the unknown while simultaneously collaborating with roots Rock n’ Roll, alternative sounds, and an experimental edge.

Formed in 2017, Lone Tree were originally named Refuge, which represented what they are all about: an escape from inauthentic music. Meant tongue and cheek, it came to symbolize their drive for progress. Influences are broad and reflect their deep knowledge of music across all genres, including Pink Floyd, Fela Kuti, King Gizzard, Tame Impala, Allman Brothers, The Wailers, Buddy Guy and Jethro Tull. The band's depth and diversity are unmissable – having collectively lived in ten countries and speaking six languages.

Lone Tree started making waves in 2018 with its first original “Gone Astray” which debuted at #1 in the East African rock charts. Local and international TV, radio and online appearances quickly followed. The band has opened for international stars like Ziggy Marley, NSG (UK), Fave (Nigeria), Nena (Germany)

and Petite Noir (South Africa) as well as major Kenyan artists like Sauti Sol, Khaligraph Jones and Nviiri the Storyteller. To date, the band has performed more than 150 live events.

Musikfest (U.S., 2022), Oktobafest (Kenya, 2022) and Kids Rock for Kids (U.K., 2023). Lone Tree made its U.S. debut in 2021 at The Basement in Nashville and Fantastic Negrito’s in Oakland, then returned in 2022 for a 10-show tour in Nashville, D.C. and PA. They most recently completed a 6-show tour of

London playing iconic venues such as Dublin Castle, Bush Hall and 229 London.

Now, Lone Tree has dropped their latest single "Holding On" that features lo-fi sounds with funky acoustics, swaying hymns and ethereal vocals. The short but sweet groovy guitar solo incorporates the band's love for a good rock n roll moment. Serving as a reggae-type beat mixed with rock n roll, "Holding On" is a song for music lovers everywhere.
