    Naming Trees is a self-produced, American indie rock band formed in Midland, Texas in 2008, later migrating to Austin, Texas in 2010. The duo consists of Jaret Burkett (vocals, guitar, piano, producer), and Jae Knox (vocals, piano, guitar).

    In 2008, the band began the quest to define their style. After writing and recording songs in various genres such as folk, electronic, rock, and ambient, the band mixed all of the styles that they loved to end up with their unique sound. "We worked really hard to find a style that was a good balance of all the types of music we loved. We both came from very different musical backgrounds, so it was a challenge to work together at first. Once we started clicking, the doors of inspiration blew open," says Jae.

    The band name came from a spiritual experience Jaret had where the trees began talking to him. Their debut album is named Alex, the name of the leader/father of the group of trees that spoke to him. "We are both spiritual psychonauts, always eager to explore the inner mind deeper and deeper. Many of our songs are about our experiences in other planes of reality. Music is the only way to explain the unexplainable," says Jaret.

    Shortly after the release of Alex, the two agreed that they wanted to make their musical endeavor strictly a creative one, and decided to put their entire album on their website for free. A second album is in the works, which is expected to be released late 2011/early 2012.
