Radical Face - The Family Tree: The LeavesRegular price $32.00
More than 10 years ago, in a shed behind his mother’s house, Ben Cooper AKA Radical Face, started an unprecedented musical journey. The story of a fictitious, and sometimes otherworldly 19th century family was brought to life in a three-part album series called The Family Tree. Certain instrumentations and melodies were used to represent various “family members” and each album was recorded using only the instrumentation available during the era represented. Throughout the writing and recording process of each album in the trilogy, there were certain tracks that didn’t quite fit the album. These came to be known as “the bastards.” Historically, “the bastards” have been given away to fans in front of each album to elicit excitement for the impending album release. As the trilogy is now finished, so are “the bastards”. A devoted fanbase that includes many in the licensing world has resulted in over 158K fans on Facebook and one million track streams weekly. “Welcome Home” a track from his debut album was licensed by Nikon and has lead to over 24 million video views on YouTube and 200 million streams in the US. The first two albums in the trilogy, The Family Tree: The Roots (released 2011) and The Family Tree: The Branches (released).
