When Treetop Flyers sing and play their guitars, a golden-hued warmth comes out of out of the speakers. It’s as if they’re channeling the sunset sounds of the 70’s, when country-folk melodies and comforting harmonies ruled the airwaves with artists like CSN(Y), Jackson Browne, The Band, and even Seals and Crofts.
Even while paying respect to the music they grew up with courtesy of their dad’s record collections, the English band (w. a Yankee drummer) writes and sings of things emotionally connected to this century on their debut The Mountain Moves.
Their music sounds rooted yet progressive.
For their Sunny Side Up session at NP Recordings in Towson, we were joined by singer Reid Morrison and guitarist with the great rock-n-roll name, Sam Beer (he’s also a very funny guy).
Just listen to the guitar work and sweet harmonizing- sounds like more than two guys are in the room.
