If music is the universal language, then musicians are agents of unity and inclusivity. On FREQUENCY OF LOVE, the 5th studio album of The Giving Tree Band, much of their imaginative American rock 'n roll manifests from lucid dreams. With all their instruments calibrated to sacred tunings inspired by ancient mythologies of healing and miracles, the Illinois group's new age outlaw sound opens the heart and invites the soul to dance. Loaded with tales of transcendent love and the adventures of warriors of the light, the positive vibrations sail out in all directions carrying the sweet message of harmony and optimism.
