Blending folk, pop and celtic genres with their own unique musical styles, Natalie Parker, Ryan Pentland and Yanni Dellaportas came together as SugaTree to create something new and maybe a little different.
Fast moving mandolin and penny whistle melodies completed the original works with a kick drum and harmonica and in no time SugaTree was playing at wineries, festivals, restaurants, pubs and bars - entertaining audiences of all ages. In late 2013 SugaTree released a debut EP called Motherland. The limited edition CD sold out at gigs within months and the songs continue to sell and stream online around the world.
SugaTree released their full length debut album "This Time" at the end of 2017. The sales of the first pressing of the physical CDs exceeded all expectations and the online sales continue to sell well. SugaTree recently performed to sold out audiences at the 2018 Port Fairy Folk Festival and will be playing at the Australian Celtic Festival in May and were invited to perform at the Boorowa Woolfest in September.
"The songs on This Time are melodic and pensive, and delivered with so much sincerity that you can't help but be drawn into the music. Beautiful instrumentation and expert arrangements offer just the right backing for the intelligent lyrics and nice smooth melodies. And the vocal harmonies are out-of-this-world." - babysue.com
