Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist K Ishibashi was born in Seattle, Washington but spent his formative years on the East Coast, where he honed his skills as a touring violinist for the likes of Sondre Lerche, Regina Spektor, and, later, Of Montreal. In 2003 he co-founded the Brooklyn-based indie pop outfit Jupiter One, who went on to release a pair of EPs and two full-length albums. In 2011 Ishibashi embarked on a solo career, adopted the pseudonym Kishi Bashi, and began opening shows for Lerche, Alexi Murdoch, and Of Montreal, eventually releasing 151A, his full-length solo debut under the moniker, in April 2012. Ishibashi's sophomore outing, Lighght, followed in early 2014. ~Allmusic
Mike Savino is not your grandaddy’s banjo player, and Tall Tall Trees is definitely not your average indie-folk outfit from NYC. A pioneer in the the world of experimental and psychedelic banjo music, Mike Savino has released two records and one EP on his own label Good Neighbor Records, Tall Tall Trees (2009), moment (2012), and The Seasonal EP (2014). Since 2012 Tall Tall Trees has been touring relentlessly, mystifying audiences with his “continually refreshing and innovative approach to the banjo” (Paste Magazine). Often performing solo, Savino’s modern take on the one-man band involves running his homemade instrument, dubbed the Banjotron 5000 through a slab of effects and loopers, bowing, drumming, and strumming out multi-textured arrangements to support his lyrically driven songs.
