ABOUT NED EVETT AND ‘TREEHOUSE’
Treehouse is the result of a remarkable collaboration of well-known music industry talent. The album was produced and recorded in the studio of Adrian Belew, the guitarist, songwriter, and record producer who has played with David Bowie, the Talking Heads, Nine Inch Nails, Frank Zappa, Paul Simon, and other famed acts. Evett met Belew in Milan, Italy, in 2010 while both were on tour with Joe Satriani.
“Adrian is one of my all-time heroes,” Evett said. “I was thrilled when he invited me to Nashville to record this album. He didn’t allow me to second guess myself.”
Evett is backed on the record by Lynn Williams on drums, Malcom Bruce-the son of Jack Bruce from Cream-on bass, Ed Roth on keyboard, and Belew on guitar. Ryan Hewitt mixed the album, directly after working on the latest Avett Brothers production. He also mixed Evett’s previous release, Afraid4U.
“This album is about love lost and redemption,” Evett notes. “It’s more singer-songwriter than fretless guitar gunslinger, but the gunslinger is still there.”
Taking special note of the title track “Treehouse” and “Mars River Delta 2128,” the album has received note-worthy four- and five-star reviews from magazines including No Depression, Guitar Player, Maverick, Premier Guitar, Guitar World, and more. Evett launched the album this summer with a two-month release tour of England.
“Treehouse opened a floodgate of new writing for me,” Ned said. “I’m excited to share be able to share this work with my hometown.”
