Local Band In Focus 

The Lorax Tree

Meet the Band: Neal Campbell (guitars), Dylan Gomez (drums), and Matt Brower (bass and keyboards)

Oh, the Noises They'll Make: Established in 2008 as Captain Kneal and the Noisemakers, the electronica-leaning prog-rockers changed their name last year to the Lorax Tree (based on a Dr. Seuss book) because Bruce Hornsby had dibs on the Noisemakers moniker.

Who They Sound Like: DJ Aphrodite and Roni Size as played by the Police

Them in 2023: The band calls the dub- and rock-infused music on its still-untitled upcoming album "future rock," says Brower, "because it feels like something that would be popular 10 or 15 years from now."

Why They Say They Matter: "I really feel we're creating music that's completely unique from anything anyone is doing or has done," says Brower.

Why We Say They Matter: A Lorax Tree show is more than just a concert; it's a circus of art. The group incorporates other elements onstage, like painters creating works while the band performs.
