Its a totally unique guy/girl, band fronted by //
Ian Treloar vox /8&6 string acoustic/elec synth guitars, Poly Bass
Ree Liddell vocals/ dobro / parlor guitar/mandolin, poly Bass
Simon Dewar on drums percussion loops n harmony
The collocation of the male/female singer-songwriters make for an exciting merge, creating a smorgasbord of unexpected song scapes. Ree Liddell through her grasp on the resonator, mandolin, parlor acoustic or the hybrid electric, finds voices with different style stories.
Ian's 8 string acoustic/electric guitar invention has his own signature “chang”. Hypnotic and lilting or hard-hitting with traces Hendrix and other guitar greats. Themes of space-junk, love, third-world rip-offs, rusted cars, politics, fun, environment; the stuff that makes the world go around - life.
At the heart of changoTRee is the poetic pith of retrospect and a song crafting which is honey for the world.

“Postcards From Tomorrow” has snared changoTRee’s last two years of music adventures in their spin across Oz and the globe.
It started rolling when changoTRee’s debut album “Home” had a number 1 on the AMRAP, AirIt Regional charts in 2017 and was reviewed masterfully by Rhythms Magazine.
Their songs stack magical roots, blues-cruise, funky-folk with swampy grooves and a splash of surf-Rasta-reggae.
This is the "chango" which has taken its two songwriters, through the whim of its “Muse”, from their home base in the Mornington Peninsula, travelling, writing, recording, & performing shows & festivals in New Orleans, Ireland, the UK, New York, France, plus annual East Coast Oz and Rural Victorian tours.
