Formed in the Summer of 2011, South Wales four-piece CLIMBING TREES soon came to the attention of BBC Radio Wales with their distinctive Cymrucana sound, gaining BBC Introducing Band of the Week, Artist of the Week and Single of the Week recognition along with playlisting throughout the station in 2013 during the run-up to the release of critically-acclaimed debut album Hebron, recorded in isolation at Carmarthenshire's Mwnci Studios.

Announced as one of twelve artists to take part in the inaugural year of the BBC and Arts Council of Wales’ Horizons project at the beginning of 2014, the following months 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.

Rounding off the year with a live session at London’s legendary Maida Vale Studios followed by an appearance with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for BBC One’s The Really Welsh Christmas Show, 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.
Following the success of recent single Tracks, which gained airplay from the likes of Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson, the band released latest album Borders through Staylittle Music this summer to rave reviews, and with a run of high-profile shows into the Autumn, 2016 is continuing to be another big year for Climbing Trees.
