Formed in the Summer of 2011, South Wales four-piece CLIMBING TREES soon came to the attention of BBC Introducing with the distinctive Cymrucana sound of their critically- acclaimed 2013 debut album HEBRON. Recorded in isolation in the woods of Carmarthenshire, the band achieved playlisting across BBC Radio Wales before being announced as one of twelve artists to take part in the inaugural year of the BBC and Arts Council of Wales’ Horizons project in the Spring of 2014.
The following months saw appearances at Green Man Festival, Festival No.6 and The Hay Festival during a twenty-date summer tour which also included a triumphant performance at the Dylan Thomas Centenary celebrations in Laugharne Castle. A live session at London’s legendary Maida Vale Studios followed shortly after, with a television appearance alongside the BBC National Orchestra of Wales rounding off a breakthrough year. .
