ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the most promising recent entries into the music capitol’s blossoming indie scene, Wiretree boasts a sound that spans both sides of the Atlantic, containing equal doses of some familiar American folk and Britpop marvels. As Austinist.com wrote, “Smithereens, Squeeze and the Posies all make their appearances in the influenced-by department, but so do Tom Petty, James Taylor and Brendan Benson.\"

Bouldin, Wiretree’s first full-length release, was written and performed entirely by Peroni. Recorded over the span of 2 years in his home studio, Bouldin is a masterful testament to the singular musical vision of this young artist. Though the record’s eclecticism is undeniable, Bouldin is threaded by Peroni’s affinity for American chords; his soothing, unassuming vocals; and his British sensibilities. According to Austinist.com, Bouldin is “a nine song testament to American chords, everything that was good about real folk music, bridging the gap between The La’s and late ’70s George Harrison with ease.\"

Peroni grew up in Corpus Christi where he took an early interest in music. He taught himself piano by ear at a young age, played trumpet through high school and college, and later learned guitar while working at a music store. Using Dylan and The Beatles as a guide, Peroni began a period of writing that would later lead to his first release. When grunge took hold in the states, Peroni immersed himself in the British music scene. Most notably, he was drawn to bands like The La\'s, Travis, Oasis, Pulp, and Supergrass. Though he still held the American folk icons in high regard, his record collection was a testament to the flourishing Britpop movement.

In search of a better job and eager to experience the world-famous Austin music scene first hand, Kevin relocated to Austin in the mid 90\'s. After playing in several bands, Kevin became certain he needed to build one of his own in order to fully realize his vision. He quickly recruited his wife Rachel on bass and Josh Kaplan on guitar to begin performing his music live.

Wonderful hazy pop
This is a wonderful little hazy pop record that's endearing in its simplicity.

Peroni has an unassuming voice that just comes along for the ride, crusing along with the driving guitars that push the songs along. The result is a laid-back feel that still has a slight edge, caught somewhere between The Beatles and The Pernice Brothers. His songwriting has improved greatly, and it shows that he's got more than a few tricks up his sleeve.
