Tall Tall Trees is the pseudonym of multi-instrumentalist Mike Savino. Moving to NYC in the early aughts with aspirations of being a bassist in the city’s vibrant jazz and experimental music scene, he soon switched his focus to banjo and writing songs, resulting in his 2009 debut, Tall Tall Trees. Savino has since toured non-stop, pioneering a world of psychedelic electric banjo music while captivating audiences with his loop-based one man shows. Sonic imagery and pastoral landscapes are his hallmarks. Though the banjo is heavily featured, the influence of Pink Floyd and Cat Stevens can be felt as much as banjo mavericks Earl Scruggs and Bela Fleck. Reflective of today’s challenging times, his message is ultimately one of hope and finding peace of mind in the chatter of the modern world.
