Hard Rock 3-piece band
Mike McCann formed Raven Tree with one objective in mind, to be authentic in everything they do. From writing songs to recording and performing, Mike McCann (Guitar/Vocals), Phoenix Johnson (Bass/Vocals) and Jed Prentice (Drums/Vocals) do not blindly follow industry standards. When it comes to Raven Tree’s music what you hear is real, no autotune or ProTool’d production is involved. Raven Tree albums are not collections of sound-alike singles, distinct tracks are combined to create albums which 100% creatively represent the band. Their sound has been described as a combination of Velvet Revolver and Van Halen with influences of Cream and Hendrix.
After a few lineup changes, Raven Tree jelled together when Phoenix came in to do some sessions for the second record and has remained an intrical part of the band ever since. Jed came in as a fill in drummer and invited himself to join the band. The band’s first break into the music industry came from getting a start with Matt Davis and 98 Rock’s Noise In The Basement.
From The National Sylvan Theatre in Washington, D.C. to the prestigious The Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia and Shockwavefest, Raven Tree have become one of the must-see bands in the Mid-Atlantic music scene and are currently booking. Members of Raven Tree have played on bills with The Pretty Reckless, Puddle of Mud, Alien Ant Farm and Sevendust.

"I’ve worked with Raven Tree for over two years and they always bring a rock solid, professional performance. These guys are top notch musicians and their crafted songs rock! I would highly recommend them to any professional promoter or booking agent looking for great stage presence and killer rock!"
