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.
Until then, please come and see us at the finer venues here in Tucson & Phoenix, Flagstaff & Bisbee & make sure to sign up for our mailing list on this site - we will keep you informed--Also, befriend us on Myspace, Facebook and ILIKE.com, Bebo, and Reverb Nation.
