About By the TreeTwo-time Dove Award winners By The Tree have made a name for themselves with their ability to mix passionate worship with catchy rock/pop melodies. Since signing with Fervent Records in 2001, the group, which includes Chuck Dennie (vocals, guitars), Ben Davis (bass, keyboards, vocals), and Aaron Blanton (drums, percussion, vocals), has released a record each year and show no signs of slowing down.
Invade My Soul, the band's first release through Fervent, found great success in the Christian market, winning Dove Awards for Modern Rock/Alternative Album and Recorded Song. The band soon began tourning with Christian music icons, The Newsboys, Delerious, and Jeremy Camp, and released two more albums.
The busyness of life, though, soon caught up with Dennie who, at this point, found himself feeling a little out of touch with God. Through all the excitement and success, he felt as though he had lost track of what the band was doing and why. After some time, Chuck felt God leading him back to the place where it all began — true, heartfelt worship, for himself and for the band.
