Feeling a bit camera shy


Traveling Tree is a project bringing together singer/song writers Nicolas Despo and The Grass Gypsys- Colleen Rusconi and Justin Kleya. The ensemble explores an original blend of folk, rock, country, blues and jazz. Their songs resonate with people’s own life experiences and leave their audiences uplifted.

They create a perfect melding of lead male and female vocals with harmonies reminiscent of Neil Young and Nicolette Larson. Instrumentation features acoustic guitars, mandolin and harmonica. Justin’s unique and versatile guitar and mandolin playing blend beautifully with Nicolas’ amazing guitar playing style which has been compared to Paul Simon and Colleen’s soaring vocals have been compared to Norah Jones and Natalie Merchant.

Traveling Tree draws from the fine song writing talents of all three musicians while writing their own original tunes, this group is a unique live experience perfect for any venue, spiritual gathering, celebration, private party or festival.

Traveling Tree is currently recording an album together in San Deigo and touring in Southern California. They will begin their “Travelin’ Makin’ Music Tour” in March 2007.
