Formed in the Summer of 2011, South Wales four-piece CLIMBING TREES soon came to the attention of BBC Introducing with their distinctive ‘Cymrucana’ sound.
Following the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album Hebron in 2013, the Trees have gone on to make numerous television and radio appearances, record at London’s iconic Maida Vale Studios and perform with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
Announced as one of twelve artists to take part in the inaugural year of the BBC and Arts Council of Wales’ Horizons project, 2014 also saw appearances at the likes of Green Man Festival, Festival No.6 and The Hay Festival during a twenty-date Summer Festival Tour which also included a triumphant performance at Laugharne Castle as part of the Dylan Thomas Centenary celebrations.
2015 saw work begin on the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to Hebron, before hitting the road with a string of dates in the Autumn in support of lead single Graves.
With the band’s second album released through Staylittle Music and forthcoming single Tracks gaining momentum with airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music, 2017 is set to be another big year for Climbing Trees.
