Phish Frontman Trey Anastasio Performs a Solo Tiny Desk Concert for NPR

Trey Anastasio, best known for his work as the frontman of jam band Phish, performed a solo Tiny Desk Concert for NPR.

Tiny Desk Concert host Bob Boilen wrote about the experience.

He came so humble, holding his acoustic guitar and wearing his heart on his sleeve… Anastasio was in town to perform a concert with his big band of brass and brawn, but this selection of Phish and solo tunes felt more personal. “Summer of ’89” is about his wife, Sue, while “Backwards Down the Number Line” reflects on his bandmates and friends. He opened this set with “Sleep Again,” a song that looks to a better and brighter future. It’s a treat to catch such an intimate glimpse of someone often seen in arenas, steeped in collaboration.
