Ari Picker, founder of Lost in the Trees is a composer by training and a songwriter by inclination. He describes Chappel Hill, NC based band as "orchestral folk music" because it features arrangements which harness both the dramatic power of classical music and the more intimate sounds of the singer-songwriter tradition - strings and brass meshing effortlessly with accordion, bells, musical saw, banjo, and mandolin. On tour in promotion of their new record on Anti Records entitled All Alone in an Empty House, Lost in the Trees stopped by Wolfgang's Vault for a lovely, harmonious Vault Session.
