Natalie Parker and Ryan Pentland approached musician and producer Yanni Dellaportas to help record some of their songs. It was once the demo tracks were being laid down in his studio that it became apparent something else was needed. Yanni, having performed and recorded as a guitarist and mandolin player in previous bands, played some mandolin on some of the songs. The style took a major turn and Yanni was invited to join the duo - forming SugaTree in late 2012.

Footstomping guitar riffs with catchy, heartfelt lyrics - SugaTree blend folk, pop and celtic styles to deliver energetic live shows. Fast moving mandolin and tin whistle melodies complete the original works - with kick drum and harmonica to get the crowd moving. A sonic adventure that will satiate desires and stimulate the senses.
