Planes on Paper
Planes on Paper
There has been no shortage of bands that sound like Planes on Paper in the last 10 years of Seattle music, which makes it simultaneously delightful and frustrating when one of them is clearly a full head taller than the others."
- Sean Nelson, The Stranger -

“This is folk music at the highest level.” – Greg Jones, Ear to the Ground Music
“Planes on Paper expertly maneuvers dual vocals to produce this eerie, serene, beautiful aesthetic […] simultaneously mellow and powerful.” – Fallon Schlossman, WNYC New York
“[…] it’s easy to see why Planes on Paper is starting to attract serious attention on the neo-folkie scene.” – Paul de Barros, The Seattle Times
As a one year-old project, Planes on Paper was already receiving high praise from a nearly endless list of media outlets across the country: The Seattle Times, American Songwriter Magazine, KEXP, WNYU New York, The Revue, Ear To The Ground, and The Stranger, to name just a few. Now two years in, the praise continues, and the songwriting duo is selling out small venues on both coasts, and playing some of the Northwest’s most noteworthy festivals... all without yet releasing an album; that speaks volumes about the strength of Planes on Paper’s live performances. Described as, “a cohesive, stark showcase of pure, unadulterated song craft,” they are a show not to be missed.

“Bearded man sings songs, violates banjo” – CMJ

Tall Tall Trees is the musical pseudonym of the one-man psychedelic folk rock orchestra otherwise known as Mike Savino. And to say that he is an innovator would be an understatement.

The banjo-wielding bard has reshaped the landscape of what is possible with the instrument. On stage and in studio, Savino breaks down the banjo into its most basic iteration, reminding audiences that the banjo is – at root – a drum. Coupled with his mastery of electronic effects, loops, toy ray guns, and heaps of spontaneous creativity, Tall Tall Trees has been enthralling audiences at clubs, theaters, and festivals worldwide with his mystifying solo shows, as well as playing alongside his fellow innovator Kishi Bashi.

His live show is something not to be missed.
