Under The Purple Tree is a Sydney based electro-rock band including Megan Barnes (vocal), Matt Lee (guitar) with brother Anthony (bass) and Steve Barrett (drums). Founding duo Matt and Megan began experimenting with rock, classical and electronic genres in their home studio in 2008 whilst performing original acoustic sets across Sydney, the full band forming in 2010 for several performances at the iconic Basement Nightclub. After evolving their sound UPT have finally released the first of a series of mini albums with explosive debut "Resonance" delivering some of the highest energy songs of their collection. With electric bass & guitar, drums and vocal likened to Chrissie Hynde & Katy Perry, their sound is Evanescence meets the Divinyls and Muse. Primarily rock, but pulling back for the odd acoustic or classically influenced piece, all songs are linked by emotive themes and powerful vocal presence. In 2012 UPT plan to catapult to the next level with a second release recorded live in studio.
