Tall Tall Trees

Tall Tall Trees, an NYC-based band formed in 2008, is the musical project of multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Mike Savino. Though typically performing as a quartet, Savino often — as during this session of BTR Live Studio — performs solo, utilizing only his banjo, modified by an arsenal of effects and looping pedals. Even without the accompaniment of his bandmates, the sound is full and dynamic, from booming drum hits to playful banjo runs and perfect vocal melodies. Mike played a few songs and sat down with Maia to talk a bit about his — and the project’s — musical trajectory.

Featured song: “Nothing Less”
