Umbrella Tree Spotlight

Umbrella Tree Spotlight

There's a little three-piece band in Nashville called Umbrella Tree, and they are good.

They are currently working on their fourth album, which is titled To The Memory Of A Once Great Man. "It is all about Napoleon," front man Zack Gresham told me. "Lots of 505 through a Space Echo. Pretty effin cool."

I highly recommend this band. Their albums are always well crafted, and their live performances are authentic and genuine. One gets the feeling that Umbrella Tree embodies the spirit of the late 1800s, the style and grandeur of the early part of the 1900s and the technology of the modern age.

What's more, Zack tells me that, "since the new stuff is so beat-y and dance-y, we will be posting the vocals and solos and such for remixers and their ilk to download."

Albums, What Kind Of Books Do You Read and The Letter C, released in 2006 and 2009 respectively, are also outstanding. Check them out before their new album drops this summer.

Their website, www.umbrellatreeband.com, is up and running, but the official launch date is set for the near future. Go ahead, click on it. You'll like them. - Fletcher Watson
