Audiotree is one of my favorite companies to discover new music. Based out of Chicago, the company wears many belts, including live sessions, band interviews, sponsorships and artist management. Since the recent inception of the company, they have interviewed and recorded a hundred great bands and counting, both local to Chicago and touring acts.

We had the opportunity to record a live set this past summer at the Audiotree studios. Before the session, I had never heard of this young company, but I was impressed by the genuine interest of the staff in local talent. Audiotree records their live blog posts with multiple studio mics and a group of very talented film kids to give bands live, professional studio concerts at no cost. Check out Audiotree TV to discover the most talented and undiscovered bands coming from Chicago.
