We first met Mike Savino, aka Tall Tall Trees
, when he generously looped alongside Kishi Bashi
in front of our camera's lenses early one morning last year. We were quite baffled and mesmerized by his ingenuitous use of his banjo as a talk-box; a technique we had never knowingly encountered in the past. It was recently brought to our attention that we'd be treated to some fresh Tall Tall Trees material in the not-so-distant future as Savino is currently in Atlanta, GA working on a new record with Kishi Bashi at the producer's helm.
Typically at this point we'd direct you to a pre-order page, however, Mike is what you'd call a true indie
artist as he's not provided the economic shelter of a record label. Luckily, he's partnered with PledgeMusic
, who created a Tall Tall Trees project page where you can help him get the record off the ground and into our earbuds. Check it out HERE
For those unfamiliar with Tall Tall Trees' music, you can watch him work his magic in our Kishi Bashi session video
