Baytrees Discuss New Content, Wanting All to Hear It!

Vibe funk rockers BAYTREES has been around for a while, releasing a handful of single's thus far, with much more content ready to go! With that, they just want to get themselves out there for all to hear them. Going on to discuss these matters at hand below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The Baytrees consist of myself Mensah lead singer (guitar /keys: producer) my brother Kwame (bass player /bvs/) long time friend Marcus Harris (drums /producer) Coujoe Ryan guitar bvs keys).

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

We grew up in Brixton on Baytree road hence the name the Baytrees. It’s were we began our journey of life and music. When growing up, Brixton was a lot crazier than it is now so we saw a lot at an early age.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Brixton has a great music scene with local bands like Alabama 3 who have been like mentors to us since we first started playing. 

4. How would you describe your style?

I'd describe Baytrees style as funky rocky guitar based music lined with synths and lyrics to make you think with hip hop beats to keep you moving. We work solely on vibe if there’s no vibe we can’t make it work.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

In 2020 we released 7 singles. We then went on to release our first song of 2021 'Sundown' in January, then Kwame and I lost our mother to cancer which was a really hard thing to deal with so we decided to take some time to recharge and heal and we now feel ready to get back to releasing music and gigging again.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We currently have two 5 track EP's ready to go and a hard drive full of music.

Our latest release sundown is about the racial injustice black people face everyday around the world.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We are just planning a tour now to coincide with our new EP release around November.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

I just want as many people to hear our music as possible I know our music is healing everything we do I try and make sure it has meaning and purpose and can help someone somewhere escape for three mins thirty, otherwise what’s the point.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can stream our music on Spotify and iTunes. You can also buy directly from our bandcamp page:

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The chorus, the vibe, the message, our name.
