Trey Anastasio Giveaway
Guitarist, composer, and songwriter, Trey Anastasio, has acquired a long list of musical accomplishments and collaborations. He’s not only worked with groups like Phish and Dave Matthews Band, but he’s composed several of his own orchestral pieces, including Evenings with Trey Anastasio. This particular piece has been performed with the New York Philharmonic, among others.
Along with multiple side projects, Anastasio even managed to cultivate his own band, aptly named the Trey Anastasio Band. Started as a trio in 1998, they’ve since expanded and evolved into a seven-piece collaboration.
This past year, he’s been touring with Phish, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and his septet, the Trey Anastasio Band (TAB). In October 2012, he released his most recent solo album Traveler, which marked the end of one of Anastasio’s busiest years and featured many of his past collaborators from both Phish and TAB.
Even though TAB isn’t set to release their album, Paper Wheels, until 2015, they’re kicking off an East Coast fall/winter tour in Chicago this month. Paper Wheels was recorded in Anastasio’s rehearsal/recording studio, nicknamed “The Barn”, outside Burlington, Vermont. Most songs were recorded in one or two takes and showcase his multifaceted talents while still remaining true to rock ‘n roll form.
