The man behind Tall Tall Trees is Mike Savino, a pioneer in the the world of experimental and psychedelic banjo music. If you've seen Kishi Bashi live over the last several years, chances are you've already seen this insane banjo virtuoso playing in K's band, and perhaps opening the show. Often performing solo, Savino’s modern take on the one-man band involves running his homemade instrument, dubbed the "Banjotron 5000" through a slab of effects and loopers, bowing, drumming, and strumming out multi-textured arrangements to support his lyrically driven songs.
Savino is currently prepping the release of his third full length Tall Tall Trees record, which is slated for release in early 2017.
