Trey Anastasio 2020

Although born in Fort Worth, Texas, the American singer-songwriter and guitarist Earnest ‘Trey” Anastasio III spent most of his childhood in Princeton, New Jersey. Both his parents were in education, and his mom was rather creative. She was the author of children books and edited Sesame Street Magazine. For high school, Anastasio attended the Taft School. There he formed his first two bands. At the University of Vermont (UVM) Anastasio began the band with which he would become famous, Phish. During a Christmas Semi-formal in the dining hall, the band played their first gig using hockey sticks for mic-stands. After the first set, as the year was 1983, Michael Jackson’s Thriller album was put on to drown out the band.Read More ...

  1. Trey Anastasio Live

    Whether performing for Phish or by himself, Anastasio always presents himself as a laid back dude on stage. He wears blue jeans, his long strawberry blonde bangs down to the tops of his glasses, and a respectable beard. While he is best known for his work with Phish, Anastasio has been successful as a solo artist. He typically tours with the Trey Anastasio band but has been known to perform individual acoustic sets. There is a marked contrast between Phish’s live performances which consist of long jams, often resulting in twenty-plus minute numbers and Anastasio’s solo compositions. During his 2015 NPR Tiny Desk concert, Anastasio played three songs over the course of thirteen minutes.

    A constant element of Anastasio’s live music has been his career-long collaboration with a luthier and audio-technician Paul Languedoc. Over the years Languedoc has created several custom guitars for Anastasio. He has also honed in his amplifier and speaker set up to achieve Anastasio’s signature tone. On stage Anastasio typically plays his resonant hollow body customs plunged into an Ibanez Tube Screamer overdrive pedal, or if he is playing acoustic he sticks to a collection of Martin’s.

    More About Anastasio

    As a solo artist, Anastasio has taken extreme ownership of his production process. He started his own record company, Rubber Jungle Records, and has built a rehearsal venue in the countryside known simply as the barn. The cover of Phish’s album Farmhouse features a picture of this facility.

    Anastasio has toured with many outstanding artists including the Dave Mathews Band. He has played alongside guitar legends like Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Jeff Beck. He cites Jerry Garcia as a major personal influence, alongside Jimi Hendrix.

    Anastasio was once arrested while driving, as he failed a sobriety test and had drugs including heroin on his person. Since the incident, Anastasio has sobered up and publicly thanked the officer who arrested him for turning his life around.
