The San Diego band, The Tree Ring, is relatively unknown to the general population, but I think their time may be coming. A beautiful blend of swelling strings, acoustic guitar, and an honest voice create an air of positivity that resonates throughout your very being. Check them out here before they catch their big break, so you, too, can be that hipster friend.
