Having recently become a father of twins and taking a 6 year break from writing and touring, raising children afforded John the time to contemplate the world we live in and inspired him to begin writing again. Getting back into the studio after many years was incredibly exciting and allowed John to collaborate with old friends Paul, Doug, Matt and Geoff who were also in fatherhood mode.
Recorded in Memphis, Tennessee and Melbourne, the album title The Sound Of Trees is analogous to suffering in silence. In a world facing big issues such as excessive population growth, diminishing global resources and the proliferation of corruption, greed and capitalism, The Sound Of Trees is a euphemism for the decaying natural world we've inherited that has no voice - a cry for help that cannot be heard. It conveys moments of optimism with an undertone of loss.
