Q- How has the current tour been so far?
A- It’s been good. We started the Mellow Tour, I think three weeks ago, and for the beginning of the season we’ve stayed in the Southeast, you know, Hilton Head, Florida, a lot in Florida. We actually just got back from 10 days in Florida. Kind of hitting the whole East and West side of it.
Q- Who have you been on tour with lately?
A- We just played a show with The Movement in St. Pete that was really good. Other than that, like a few weeks ago, we toured with Jahman Brahman from Asheville, N.C. and G of AllAreOne, a local DJ, I think he’s actually DJing between sets at Cali Roots.
Q- How does it feel to be asked to perform at Cali Roots, especially since it’s in Myrtle Beach this year?
A- I think it’s great on both sides. We’ve always kind of tried to be in consideration for Cali Roots Carolina Sessions so once we heard it was coming to Myrtle Beach we’re like, you know, we’ve got to represent Myrtle Beach. We had to get that spot. We’re really excited to represent our hometown in this and I think they made a good choice for some locals to hit the town and spread the word on it.
Q- Do you have plans for a new album?
A- We do. We’re actually releasing a single collaboration of Treehouse and Oogee Wawa of Long Island, NY so, that will be released in May, called Waiting on the Sunrise. And that will be our Summer single that we’re going to drop. It should be pretty fun. We’re also working on a live compilation album of a bunch of different live shows, live recordings. So, we’ll have probably like a 20 song live album sometime this Summer. We’re also going into the studio at the in of April up in Boston to record with Toft from Spiritual Rez for our next project which should be released in January. We’re going to play one of those new songs at Cali Roots too.
Q- What are your plans after the festival as far as touring?
A- Right around the festival we have like a week and a half off to kind of recuperate before the festival and then to gear up after the festival. We basically start heading out that next week. We do North Carolina and then we just truck it on up to New Jersey, New York, New Hampshire and then start recording and we’re touring all up there in between recording sessions so, we’ll be in, like I said, New Jersey, New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island all that good stuff.
Q- What is your favorite part of touring?
A- Just making new friends everywhere we go and getting to check out new scenery, obviously. Touring is just a great excuse to travel. We try to make it somewhat part of our business, you know, in a logistical sense but we definitely try to soak in all the sites and meet the right locals to show us around and show us what’s really good. We don’t like to play tourist, we like to get the local experience and find the cool spots outside of the venue and the block around the venue that we’re playing. I just like meeting a lot of friends across the East Coast and now we have a whole family that we’ve built. Basically outside of Treehouse I could travel almost anywhere and have a friend.
Q- Is there anything you’d like your fans to know about Treehouse?
A- Right off the top of my head, most people think we’re a three piece, we’re working on adding keys and saxophone permanently within the next year or two.
Q- Will there be a Sun Dried Vibes and Treehouse! collaboration at Cali Roots Carolina Sessions?
A- Absolutely. We’re excited about this. You can expect Zach Fowler from Sun Dried Vibes to play on our set and you can expect me to be on the Sun Dried Vibes set. We’re definitely going to be having some fun jamming together up there. We’ll also be performing the Young One Sun Dried Vibes/Treehouse! collaboration but we’re doing the Fear Nuttin Band remix version of it. Fear Nuttin Band is there and we’re going to have Prowla come up on that. That will be the first time all three acts perform it live.
Treehouse! has been featured on the Music Unites compilation from Fortunate Youth.
