"Treetop Flyers"

Londoners Treetop Flyers are as comfortable playing their folk-rock in the capital's clubs as they are in rolling festival fields....(they have) a big month ahead, one that they're more than ready to conquer - The Fly

"Watch Out For..."

Live, their songs become an eclectic, tangled mix with roots in folk, country and blues with a lot of foot-tapping bass and erotic slide-guitar. The grainy soulful rasp of lead singer Reid's vocals in songs such as Is It All Worth It? gives Treetop Flyers its nostalgic sound. Whoever said country music was dead clearly better watch out for Treetop Flyers! - Predictions

Expect Treetop Flyers' It's About Time to become the next breakout hit from this curious little rootsy scene. - Metro

"Other Stage, Glastonbury"

Treetop Flyers, whose four-part harmonies are miles off the Fleet Foxes, especially when basslines recall Stax singles rather than Crosby, Stills & Nash. Enthusiastic about rocking out, they deservedly go down a storm. - Q Magazine

“Pure Country Soul” is about right,” reckons Treetop Flyers vocalist Reid Morrison summing up the bands sound. Signed to Communion – the label co-founded by Mumford And Son’s Ben Lovett, the band released their first single for the label "Things Will Change" in May 2011 leading to a sold out show at The Borderline, London.

Treetop Flyers beautifully tangled roots soak up a timeless musical current – one that follows a musical lineage from The Band, Neil Young and Crosby, Stills & Nash, through to contemporaries Fleet Foxes, My Morning Jacket and Josh T Pearson.

Winning the Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition this year proved to be a turning point for the band. Playing the festival 6 times, including a brilliant performance on The Other Stage, the band won many new fans and were invited back to play the prestigious Pilton Party for the festival workers in September. Previous guests include Dizzy Rascal and The Stone Roses - The line up this year was Plan B, The Hot Rats and Treetop Flyers.

The band were a huge success at the UK festivals last Summer, with storming sets at Hop Farm, Feis, Wilderness, Apple Cart, Bush Stock, Tramlines and many other festivals.

Treetop Flyers most recent release for Communion was marked by a 14 date tour, including a sell out show at London's Hoxton Bar & Kitchen. Radio play for the single included a BBC Radio 2 session with Dermot O' Leary. With their debut album due April 2012, it's set up to be their year.
