Treetop Flyers, who won the Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition in 2011, are a three piece folk, americana, call it what you will, band from London. If your thing is the 70's West Coast sound then you're in for an absolute treat. The two and three part harmonies throughout are beautiful and complement each other perfectly, it's a lovely lush sound with lead singer Reid Morrison's voice giving them a wonderful soulful edge. But the last few years have not been kind to the band, it's been a case of needing to fall apart, in order to rebuild, and come back stronger; grief for lost parents, broken marriages, the near-death of a close friend and the loss of numerous behind-the-scenes personnel led to a prolonged period of upheaval. The making of their last, critically acclaimed, album, Palamino, provided the necessary therapy, bringing the core of the band closer together, and seeing them dragging themselves to their feet once more, bloodied but unbowed. Treetop Flyers have emerged triumphant from the most turbulent of times, as their spine-tingling live performances attest.
