Trey Anastasio Dave Vann
February 6, 2013 - Trey Anastasio joins host David Dye in the studio for a rare solo acoustic performance. Trey Anastasio helped found Phish at The University of Vermont in 1983. In addition to his work with the group, Trey has continually pushed his improvisational and compositional boundaries, thanks to both a successful solo career and the Trey Anastasio Band.
During the five years Phish was apart from 2004 to 2009, in addition to his new music ventures, Trey tackled the addiction that he has cited as one of the reasons why Phish split. After much touring and fanfare around Phish’s return with Joy, Trey recently made time for a new solo album Traveler. He talks about the new material and tells the story behind his song “Valentine”, one of the first things he wrote after getting sober. And Graham Parker The British singer seemed on the brink of making it big with his band The Rumor in the late 70s. After three decades apart they reunited and released a new disc Three Chords Good late last year. He discusses what it was like to be featured in the Judd Apatow movie This is 40.
