Once A Tree

Aug 12, 2019 | Funding Recipient

Once A Tree is an electronic music duo made up of Jayli Wolf and Hayden Wolf. With heartfelt lyrics forged from their personal experiences, the couple released their debut album Phoenix in November of 2017.

The two met while leaving the dooms day religion they were both raised in. Excommunicated by their community, they decided to use music as their voice. They fell in love and began writing folk music in a small valley town near the Canadian Rockies. When Jayli won a songwriting competition, the two were flown to Toronto to shoot a music video. They arrived in the city with two suitcases and a guitar; looking for a fresh start and determined to pursue their dreams.

After relocating to Toronto, Hayden was accepted into The Remix Project where he was able to hone his music production skills. The two began to evolve their sound, infusing mellow beats with dream pop melodies. Once A Tree was born.
