Synopsis

Amazon.com
Treehouse's first U.S. release is Nobody's Monkey on Breaking Records, a new label co-founded by Hootie manager Rusty Harmon. Treehouse owes little to the Blowfish musically, however, for this Liverpool quartet is firmly rooted in the music of their hometown heroes, the Beatles. More specifically, Nobody's Monkey reflects the music-hall psychedelia of such 1966-'67 singles as "Rain" and "Penny Lane." Treehouse is much better at this narrow niche than most bands, because the guitar squiggles and smears are accompanied by seductive pop melodies. Peter Riley not only wrote the intoxicating choruses for such songs as "Rain on Your Parade" and "A Million Places at Once," but also sings them in an aching tenor caught between hurt and idealism. --Geoffrey Himes

CD Reviews

A Widely Missed GEM of a CD!

"I fell in love with this CD when it came out back in 1997. I don't think there's a song on this disc that I would categorize as anything other than awesome. Standout tracks for me are "Daddy Inside", "A Million Places At Once", "Miracle Divide", "Hangin' On", and the gorgeous "Alison's Sky."
The guys in Treehouse used to stop in to the radio station I worked at in North Carolina, and I can tell you truthfully that these are incredibly nice guys who poured their hearts and souls into this music. I must own close to 800 CD's, and this disc still finds its way into my CD player time after time. TREEHOUSE were a band that never got their due, nor the promotion that they deserved. And this CD is near the top of my list of must-owns. This is pop/alternative rock, with far more heart than than acts like Sugar Ray or Smashmouth could ever hope to muster. Too good to miss."
The whole CD is great, blew my mind!!!!

"I first saw Treehouse in concert with Cowboy Mouth a few years back. After that I went and bought the CD. The whole CD is awesome. The songs and music lifted my spirits. I love the CD and can't wait for another one to come out."
