A warm welcome back to Anglo/Swedish band ‘House of Trees’ whose jazzy moody melodies and superb vocals have been selling out top jazz and folk clubs throughout Europe including Ronnie Scotts in London. They bring the wonderful Ryan O’Reilly with them. Don’t miss the chance to hear them all live in Bridport!
The House of Trees
Once upon a time some friends moved to a house made of, and surrounded by, trees. Situated deep in the Swedish woodlands the house is a hidden haven; a place where if no-one speaks one hears only the sound of birds, a river and the wind in the trees. There is also the sound of music…
Led by singer/songwriter Rob Coe, House of Trees explore the myriad moods of life – thoughts, dreams, places and people – in their often mythical fairytale songs. Djamila Skoglund Voss’s earthy yet ethereal voice combines with Bridport-born James Carnell on percussion and Helena Sköld on violin.
The atmosphere and emotion of their gigs is like a good home: warm and cosy on the inside but outside the wind and the dark are knocking on the door. The songs blend a heady mix of classical, folk and jazz music that draw parallels with Billie Holiday, Kurt Weill, and dark old-time Disney classics.
The group’s new CD Where’s the Butcher, Where’s the Baker is now out. Listen to it here.
‘The mixed emotions, the taste of an intoxicating, anything-goes atmosphere; the piercing and stimulating feel of a time which you can only ever imagine having lived… These are the qualities the listener will find on the stunning album by House of Trees, the superb Where’s The Butcher, Where’s the Baker?‘ Ian Hall, Liverpool Sound and Vision
“The Ryan O’Reilly Band are the perfect antidote to our era of production line pop. To see them live is to be reminded of what music’s really all about: people, passion and poetry.”
