One of our favorite artists, Mike Savino, a.k.a. Tall Tall Trees, has just launched a campaign on Pledge Music to raise money to sponsor the making of his new album. Like many independent musicians, Tall Tall Trees makes his own way, relying on his talent, his sense of adventure, and the good people around him to make the life of a full-time musician possible.
Working with friend and fellow independent musician, Kishi Bashi, Tall Tall Trees’ new record will surely be a ground-breaking musical composition starring his trusty banjotron and his infamous mane. In order to better understand this fundraising project, please watch the hilariously entertaining video in which Tall Tall Trees, sitting comfortably by a fireplace in a knit Grampa sweater, explains the project and gives you a heavy dose of his infectious personality and awesome weirdness.

And as always, remember: the best way to support your local artists is to show up!
Matia Guardabascio is a proud citizen of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in both English and French Literature. As the daughter of a musician and a school teacher, Matia grew up in a musical household with parents who made a concerted effort to instill in her the value and importance of the arts. She is a music enthusiast, an avid reader, a writer of prose and poetry, a traveler, and an enthusiastic imbiber of red wine. The piano is her favorite instrument, followed by the drums, and she loves Impressionist artwork, especially because she doesn’t need to wear her glasses to see what’s going on. That’s right, the glasses are not for show. She wears tri-focals because she reads too much, or as her good friends might say, she actually 80-years-old.
