Trey Anastasio.

Trey Anastasio is best known as the former lead singer of Phish, the legendary jam-rock band with a devout following reminiscent of The Grateful Dead's. A gifted songwriter and talented singer, Anastasio explores a variety of sounds in his solo work, experimenting with heavy bass lines and howling guitar riffs.

His most recent solo album, Bar 17, is his second in the past year. He reunited with Phish and Pavement producer Bryce Goggin to share producing duties for the album, and also collaborated with musicians such as John Medeski, Benevento/Russo Duo and singer Carmen Keegan.
