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!
