For nearly seven years, the guys from TreeHouse! have spent the majority of their days as road warriors blazing sprawls of highway and at night playing an unapologetic enthusiastic blend of reggae jam rock they are know for in venues across the nation.
TreeHouse! songs resonate in your soul. With lyrics filled with rising above adversity, gratitude, and unity. For every setback, there's a step up waiting for you if you keep your focus. For every day, there's a blessing to count and for every event, we must recognize we are a part of it all. It's this kind of message that makes the most recent studio album, Lifted, their strongest release to date.
"The message of Lifted is best portrayed in the simple words inside the cover: Love. Peace. Gratitude. Compassion. Positivity. Awareness. Empowerment. Awakening. Enlightenment. Our endeavor is whatever we can do to realize and actualize these concepts within this world" says Frontman Jeremy Anderson
In 2010, lead singer Jeremy Anderson and drummer Trey Moody formed the foundation of the American Reggae Jam Rock band TreeHouse! With a high five and a dream, they jumped into a passenger van to travel the country and share their good vibes. Along the way they picked up fellow band members Joe Harley on Keyboards/Theramin/Vocals and the talented Scott Nichols on Bass.
Throughout the years, the band has collaborated with other up and coming artists in the genre including Sun-Dried Vibes, Oogee Wawa, and others, building a like minded community they call "Brother Bands. "
"We use the term “Brother Band” for any band with which we frequently work and vibe together. We often only work with other bands who work as hard as us, so our Brother Bands are those on the same long path. We use this term to indicate the Family vibe and cohesiveness of our scene of mostly East Coast Reggae Rock bands, with the idea that we can all do more together than we can alone. We have a nice community building around this idea. The Family-Community Vibe is one of the most important messages we can portray in the ultimate endeavor of Unity and One Love."
After teaming up with musical idols like The Wailers, 311, Dirty Heads, Pepper, Stick Figure and SOJA along their journey and in the spirit of the bands who laid the road before them, these road warriors continue to spread their roots coast to coast.
The TreeHouse! single, "Blessings" was picked by Stephen Marley and Ky-Mani Marley as one of the top 10 songs out of hundreds of contestants in the Marley's Music Uprising, because they felt this song exemplified the spirit of Bob Marley.
"I drive long hours, I carry heavy equipment, and I fully exert myself every night, but I see these experiences as training and growth, and I find peace and joy in them before we even get on stage for the fun part. The live show itself heals me every night. I write these songs, to some extent, for my own sake. If I am to sing this song every night, I try to make it beneficial for my own being and implant within it a message that I may need to hear, myself, for reassurance in my journey. Whenever we are feeling overwhelmed with our path, someone comes like a messenger from the universe and feels the need to express how much we’ve affected their life for the better, just by doing what we do. That’s what always keeps us going."
TreeHouse! is currently in the studio working on a new album to be released in 2018.
The Late Risers
Late Risers- August 2015 skank artist/songwriter Justin Edward (one bomb) meets up with drummer Aaron Bennett (the foundation) and guitarist Chris Harris( the reluctant shredder) in the heart of yuppie town, USA. The rampant excess and popped collars are relentless but the Late Risers find each other nonetheless and a chord is struck. A short time later two other warriors joined the tribe; a musical wizard in the form of Devlin McDonald( the devil slayer) joins the band to hold down the low end. As well as Chris Walker (Cdub) on percussion who is a student of nyabinghi drumming and Rastafarian culture.
Through the power of their diverse musical backgrounds and slacker toil, their sound instantly converges around Jbeel's epic songwriting coalescing into euphoric diatribes of the yearning soul. Thus songs like " war child" and " today tomorrow" were born into the gaping maw of the world seeking love and repenting loss. It's probably like nothing you have ever heard.
War Child is an understated anthem for the average man's powerful struggle to quench his souls desire to live peacefully in our troubled times. Today Tomorrow is a power ballad for our darkest times with metaphors beyond human comprehension and melodies laid out by shiva the destroyer while tending gardens of pure ineptitude. It may melt your mind. They also wrote some other songs. Not often will you find rewards like this at such a price. Free out of love and perhaps a small cover price. I digress, but fear not....the Late Risers will be coming to some venue near you and will conquer your souls. Prepare yourselves the beginning is near.
