Bio: An indie-folk band that combines foot stomping drum beatsĀ and smooth acoustic melodies in songs aboutĀ life, love, joy, failure, sin & redemption.

The name Ailanthus derives from “Ailanthus altissima,” the scientific name given to the species of tree commonly known as “Tree of Heaven.” It is the hope of each member of Ailanthus that our music, lyrics, and ministry will in some way touch the hearts and minds of each person we meet and share our music with. We hope that through our songs we can plant a seed in the lives of our listeners, so that they may go out into the world and spread our message of love, joy, and forgiveness. For that reason, we thought: what better seed to plant in the lives of others, than the seed of the Tree of Heaven?

Thus, Ailanthus.
