Welcome to the Official Website of the Americana and Folk Sounds of TREEHOUSE FIRE and GREY SKIES BLUE
Songs of life and love and history... from a desert city of the southwest ... barely an hour north of Mexico... a historically & culturally significant place , surrounded by the cactus and the harsh beauty of five mountain ranges; the lonesome sounds of birdcalls across canyons in the morning.. a place where people have lived for thousands of years, where battles between natives , invaders and opportunists have raged: happening quickly and ruthlessly .. a place of harsh beauty, simplicity and emptiness; a place of extremes and mystery ... we try to put elements of the magic of this place and its people into our music...
TreeHouseFire is a four-piece modern indie Americana rock band
we continue perfecting the songs and sound that we hope will move you... the CD, Gathering Sky, is out ; released in 2008 on gHoStToWn records as a solo cd by Stephen Budd, the singer, only because he hadn't met these guys yet--the band perform many of these songs and are writing new songs for our live shows and recorded basic tracks in Fall 2010 and that CD and vinyl has been delayed because of personnel changes and the pandemic. It will eventually be released.
please check back and we will announce upcoming shows and keep you informed--Also, befriend us on Facebook.
... Looking forward to seeing you soon!!! Many thanks!
