Matthew Whitehouse / United Kingdom
I am the cajon player in More Like Trees. We play "Strum and Bass" which is a mixture of acoustic Drum and Bass, Flamenco and Hip hop, with a bit of Gypsy, Ska and Reggae thrown in. I've been playing cajon since 2010 and in my opinion it's one of the most interesting and versatile acoustic instruments available. I have recently been playing with electronic fx, and filtering the live sound of the cajon to create other worldly noises, and add to the electronic feel of our live shows. I also have a YouTube channel where I upload covers and experiments.
Because of their rich warm sound and specifically for the fact they sound good outdoors. A lot of cajons sound limp in an outdoor environment and as we play a lot of festivals, after hours outdoors, it's great to have an instrument that holds up in outdoor situations.
