Look out for Tree63’s new ‘Kickstarter’ campaign for its followers.
AFTER a seven-yr hiatus, internationally-famend South African rock band, Tree63, has introduced the launch of a ‘Kickstarter’ campaign for its fans to participate within the recording and promotion of its seventh full-length album, slated for release this winter.
The band was revived at a sequence of reunion events final yr in South Africa – John Ellis (vocals and guitar), Darryl Swart (drums) and Daniel Ornellas (bass) reformed the trio, and are actually working on new music.
While Tree63 has been on hiatus, John moved again to South Africa from the US and released a solo album, Daniel has been living in Nashville, touring and producing, and Darryl started a recording studio in Canada.
“We’ve stayed in contact over time and stayed buddies, and though we’ve all ventured into other musical tasks since, there hasn’t been something just like the special expertise of playing as Tree63,” said John.
Daniel stated, once they got collectively to play a few dates in South Africa in April last 12 months, they talked about making new music. He said John had songs he’d written since, so that they determined to go to Nashville and file a new album.
Formed in 1996, the three-piece band first got here to international attention with the discharge of their second album, ’63’ (Survivor Records) in 1999, followed by the 2001 self-titled release from US-based InPop Data, which sparked the radio hits Treasure and Look What You’ve Accomplished. Selecting up a Dove Award that yr for ‘Rock Album of the Year’, the band went on to record four more critically-acclaimed albums and release numerous radio singles.
“The music trade has modified in a lot of how since our final album, and we now have the chance to independently launch our personal file,” mentioned Darryl. “However, with out a record label behind us, we also don’t have the cash they would often give us to make a report. But, we don’t want to cut corners, we wish to make one thing we and our fans might be proud of and get pleasure from,” he added.
