Tree63 was a Contemporary Christian Music band from Durban, South Africa. The band was formed in 1996 and originally, it was unnamed. In 1997, the band had to come up with a name before performing at North Beach, Durban. They added the 63 part of their name in 2000 due to a naming conflict with an American band. 63 had been the name of their second album, which was named in reference to Psalm 63.

Their first album released in the United States, Tree63, won the GMA Dove Award for Rock Album of the Year in 2001.

Tree63's recording of Matt Redman's "Blessed Be Your Name" helped to spark the song's popularity. This recording was featured on the 2005 edition of WOW Hits and was nominated for two Dove Awards. On a February 2, 2007 broadcast of 20, The Countdown Magazine (special edition, Praise and Worship), guest Chris Tomlin described Tree63's rendition of "Blessed Be Your Name" as "...the definitive recording of one of the most all-encompassing songs in the entire world of Christian music." The song was then announced as the number 3 Praise and Worship song of all time.

Tree63 parted ways in 2009, and John Ellis returned to South Africa, where he started his solo career. His debut solo album, Come Out Fighting, was released in June 2010.

It's been a whirlwind year for Tree63. After a few reunion gigs last year in South Africa, we decided to pick up our instruments again and start the long and rewarding journey back to each other and our fans. Thanks to all our Kickstarter Backers and our long standing fans and friends, we have managed to raise the funds to put the finishing touches to our brand new album Land. This is the first new music from Tree63 in over 8 years.
