Radical Face The Family Tree: The Leaves on LP + Download
Final Album In The Family Tree Trilogy!
More than 10 years ago, in a shed behind his mother's house, Ben Cooper aka Radical Face, started an unprecedented musical journey. The story of a fictitious, and sometimes otherworldly 19th century family is brought to life in a three-part album series called The Family Tree. Certain instrumentations and melodies are used to represent various "family members" and each album was recorded using only the instrumentation available during the era represented.
With the release of The Family Tree: The Leaves, the trilogy that's been 10 years in the making will finally come to a close. This final installment is the most personal of all the Family Tree albums for Radical Face as he incorporated some personal stories into the fictitious ones. The production is a progression from the first two albums in that it uses more modern instruments and melody lines are morphed from the first album through the second and into the third as they follow the family lineage.
The first two albums in the trilogy, The Family Tree: The Roots (released 2011) and The Family Tree: The Branches (released 2013) debuted at No. 20 and No. 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, respectively.
