My Tree is an eclectic musical collaboration that straddles the boundaries of R&B, indie rock, and jazz under a lush sonic landscape. When algorithms are decoding more music into homogeneous playlists, My Tree challenges this norm to bring music and people of disparate worlds together. Press from 2017's full-length release After Glow described the music as "Seductive, interstellar funk” [Okayplayer] and an "experimental blend of indie rock, jazz, funk, and dream pop” [The Deli Magazine] with “the perfect mix of skill and energy to keep you hooked from start to finish" [Earmilk]. Featuring acclaimed alto-saxophonist and flutist Caroline Davis in a different role as a vocalist, and keyboardist Ben Hoffmann, this collaboration features songs that seek to uplift, while at the same time pointing to the current challenges we face in the United States. My Tree is the soundtrack for the inevitable ushering in of the new world order.
Alec Gaston, is a Brooklyn-based artist carving a name for himself as a producer, songwriter, director, composer & multi-instrumentalist. Psychedelic soul is the vibe, love is the tribe.
Largely inspired by eclectic music; elements of seemingly disparate artists can be found throughout Gaston's catalogue. From 'Mac Demarco' to 'Mac Miller', sunshine to shoegaze, hip-hop to modern pyschedelia - there's a little bit of something for everyone - especially the eccentric.
Gaston’s 17-track debut LP “Inside The Outside, The Inbetween” was recorded in November of 2017 in a staggering seventy-two hours at Brewery Studio (BK) with engineer and co-producer Bryan DiMaio (engineer to Terrace Martin, Incubus, Mastadon, Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar & Kamasi Washington).
Gaston's Sophomore LP "You Really Blew My Mind" co-produced by Kevin Basko (RubberBandGun) was released May 18th, 2020.
Gaston released several singles throughout the first half of 2021 in addition to producing/ co-writing on several other projects. Gaston has been performing regularly around NYC over the past 6 years with a rotating cast in his Power Trio as well as collaborating with various local artists.
Alec is a professional Model/Actor signed with MMG.
