Trey Anastasio Talks New Musical

Another recent Anastasio video

In an interview conducted by longtime Relix/ scribe Benjy Eisen for Rolling Stone, Trey Anastasio discusses his new musical Hands on a Hardbody. The article traces Anastasio’s songwriting collaborations with Amanda Green as well as the Phish guitarist’s own roots in musical theater. When asked if working on Gamehendge prepared him for writing a musical, Anastasio replied, “I’ve certainly dreamed of doing this for my whole life, but I would have to say that it was a whole different experience. The actors are so creative and talented and fun to be around. Everyday, during the workshops, we would go downtown to a little room near Union Square, six days a week, from 10:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m., and listen to twelve phenomenal singers pouring their hearts and souls into our songs in glorious harmony – two feet in front of our heads. It’s indescribable.” Eisen’s interview with Anastasio is currently available online
