“Bearded man sings songs, violates banjo” – CMJ
Tall Tall Trees is the musical pseudonym of the one-man psychedelic folk rock orchestra otherwise known as Mike Savino. For the past half-decade, he has been turning heads with his extraordinarily innovative banjo style – using a hyper-modified instrument dubbed the ‘banjotron 5000’ and a slab of effects pedals – looping, bowing, and drumming his way into the ears and hearts of listeners all over the world.
In that time, Savino has toured North America, Europe, and Asia in support of both his own material (2012’s self-released moment and 2014’s self-released The Seasonal EP) and as an integral member of indie-pop violin sensation Kishi Bashi’s band.
Over the past year, TTT exchanged the ’round-the-clock bustle of New York City – the place he called home for fifteen years – for slower lifestyle in the mountains of Asheville, NC. He also completed his first full LP in 5 years – the incredible new album FREEDAYS, which will be released on Joyful Noise Records on Feb 17, 2017. This year is looking to be a big one. Keep an eye (and ear) out.
