The upcoming release from Denver band Treehouse Sanctum, Vivere, is a nod to the innocence of youth and a symbolic sanctuary within which creativity is allowed to flow freely. The album, co-produced by Grammy nominated engineer Nick Sullivan (Dispatch, Los Lobos) and mastered by Grammy winner Jonathan Russell (Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson) is due out on May 5.
The ¾ timing of “Chacala” creates a rhythmic waltz for each instrument to dance around. Complete with a host of instrumentation including an accordion and bright trumpet solo, the song tells the story of singer and guitarist Sam Rymer. At the age of 20, Rymer drove to a small Mexican village on the Pacific called Chacala. While there, he built a house for a local family and learned to surf at night. One crystal clear night he swam out a half mile and floated alone in the calm darkness. The ebb and flow within “Chacala” places the listener next to Rymer in the middle of the Pacific on that warm starry night.
