    Trespassers William are an indie rock/dream pop band known for their ethereal music. Hailing from Southern California, they work and live in the U District/Capitol Hill area of Seattle, Washington. They are currently finishing their fourth studio album, titled The Natural Order of Things.

    Formed in 1997, Trespassers William have released three albums. Anchor (1999) appeared on Sonikwire Records and is now out of print. Different Stars surfaced as a self-release in 2002 and was re-released twice—most recently on Nettwerk Records on October 19, 2004. In early 2004, the band relocated from Southern California to Seattle, WA. Their latest album, Having, was released February 28, 2006. The band's music has received modest press coverage and exposure, most notably in the television shows The O.C. and One Tree Hill.

    Trespassers William got their name from a Winnie-the-Pooh tale, Pooh and Piglet Go Hunting and Nearly Catch a Woozle by A.A. Milne:

    "Next to [Piglet's] house was a piece of broken board which had: "TRESPASSERS W" on it. When Christopher Robin asked the Piglet what it meant, he said it was his grandfather's name,it was short for Trespassers Will, which was short for Trespassers William. And his grandfather had had two names in case he lost one—Trespassers after an uncle, and William after Trespassers."
