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  new  CD, Gathering Sky,  is  out ;  released  a  year  ago  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  will record  again  in  the  spring  and  early  summer ..for  a  new  release , likely  to come out  in the Fall '10.
