Treetop Flyers Make a Smooth Landing in U.S.


With a sound that rekindles the embers of West Coast country-folk, Treetop Flyers were formed in the same London music scene that spawned Mumford & Sons and Adele. After releasing their debut album The Mountain Moves in June, the band’s Reid Morrison (blond hair) and Sam Beer visited the good ol’ U.S.A. for a string of acoustic shows.

The “Things Will Change” singers were kind enough to send CMT Edge a photo diary documenting their travels. Starting off in Boston, Morrison and Beer visited Woodstock, N.Y., Kingston, N.Y., Baltimore and Annapolis, Md., before finally getting some rest in Greenbelt, Md., and heading west.

With candid photographs by Nicole Fara Silver, the diary captures them visiting radio stations, shopping American-style, eating ice cream, meeting puppies and hearing themselves on the radio for the first time in the U.S. They’re also slated to perform at the Americana Music Conference on Sept. 20.
