Wiretree is an American indie pop/indie rock band from Austin, Texas. Initially a solo project based on Kevin Peroni's homemade recordings, Wiretree now currently also includes Joshua Kaplan on guitar, Gregory White on guitar, Rachel Peroni on bass and Daniel Jones on drums. Their music is influenced by British rock, indie, singer songwriter, jazz with home-based recording and song structures.[1] The band played one of the largest festivals in China, The Strawberry Festival in the Spring of 2013. Their fourth album, "Get Up" was released 2013.


Initially working under the pseudonym Wiretree, Kevin Peroni self-produced and performed the full-length album, Bouldin in 2007. The album's track, Big Coat was featured on the PBS series Roadtrip Nation.[2] After the release of Bouldin, Peroni recruited band members from Craigslist and his wife, Rachel joined on bass guitar to solidify the project. The group released their second effort Luck in 2009 while being named Best kept secret by Blurt Magazine.[3] The Canadian Television series Heartland featured Wiretree's song Whirl In early 2011.[4] On January 26, 2011, the band was recorded on Austin City Limits Satellite Sets[5] for KLRU. Also in 2011, Back in Town was used as the opening tune for the independent movie, Hold Your Peace. In 2013, Wiretree was featured in the season 2 finale of the PBS show, Hardly Sound. The Duplass Brothers produced movie Adult Beginners, featured two songs (Get up and The Shore) from the band in 2015. In 2016 the band's song Get Up was featured in a National Ad Council advertisement narrated by Matthew Mcconaughey asking the public to donate to Louisiana flood victims.
