Customer Reviews

really, really good.

I love this album.
"I'll Be Here", "The Tide" and my personal favorite "This Arrow" are beautifully crafted gems.

I've seen them live several times.
Always a great show.
These guys are my heroes!

Solid freshman effort....

Witness Tree's first album "Baby Sub Rosa" is the result of the transformation from coffee house trio to full fledged 5 piece rock band in 1995. Witness Tree (Steve Kudlacek-Vocal/Guitar, Alan Mansfield-Guitar, Eric Slater-Bass) spent the early 90's crafting rock-folk songs in the coffee houses and college campuses in and around Omaha, Nebraska. However, when the decision was made to record these songs it was decided that they would record them in a full band format and shed the acoustic/folk/coffee shop persona. Drawing from a large group of musician friends, they recruited guitarist Joe Rhodes and drummer P.J. Harding.

With this line up they set out to deconstruct the acoustic-based songs and reassemble and restructure them. Taking songs such as "Stone" and pacing a driving beat behind it and dialing in a razors-edge guitar sound made for an interesting result. In songs that would define their sound, "This Arrow", "Lean On Me", and "The Tide", you see a high attention to dynamics and versatility while still staying true to the songs roots. Wearing their influences like a comfortable t-shirt, songs like "I'll Be Here", "Daddy", "So Long", and "It's Not Me" Witness Tree venture into the jangle-distorto-pop world effortlessly. The intricate guitar work and hard dynamics of songs like "Wash These Hands" forces the listener to rethink placing this band in a restricting genre or label. The last song "Somethin'" shows Witness Tee and their friends having fun that we all can enjoy.

Give "Baby Sub Rosa" a listen. It shows you don't have a to be a major label act in a large metro area to release highly creative and challenging music.
