Parkington Sisters / Tall Tall Trees
With incomparable vocal harmonies and intricate string arrangements, the Parkington Sisters present music that is timeless and fresh all at once. The sisters are currently recording their second album, which will be released in late 2013. Their 2011 debut album, Till Voices Wake Us, was produced by Joel Hamilton (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello) and recorded at Avatar Studios and Studio G in New York City. The collection of songs explores the darkness but also the hope of each new day, the light in September, the geese flying north, the deer dead on the highway, and the struggle to move beyond. Acoustic Guitar Magazine selected the album as one of the best of 2011.
Mike Savino is not your grandaddy's banjo player, and Tall Tall Trees is definitely not your average indie-folk outfit from New York City. Most recently, Tall Tall Trees has been touring the U.S. and Canada, collaborating with beatboxing violinist Kishi Bashi. Savino is currently working on a third record, which he is expecting to release in 2014.
