Instant Treeline is a Brooklyn-based folk-rock band founded in 2016 by Will Leet, a musician and Chris Burns, a poet. The group’s songs are led by intricate lyrics and acoustic guitar soundscapes, juxtaposing the fast pace of life in New York City and the beckoning call of rural America. Hints of folk, pop, rock, country and Americana styles are found throughout the group’s work.
The group’s current rhythm section is made up of two jazz players — Dane Scozzari on drums and Jeff Koch on bass. The group often features Andrew Whitbeck on lead guitar, Tyler Campbell on back vox, vibes and guitars, and Stoddard Blackall on piano.
