Born Ernest Joseph Anastasio III in 1964, Anastasio attended Princeton Day School in Princeton, NJ. At the University of Vermont, he teamed up with bassist Mike Gordon, drummer Jon Fishman, and guitarist Jeff Holdsworth to form Phish. Soon after, Holdsworth was replaced by keyboardist Page McConnell.
Phish remained Anastasio’s primary musical outlet for the duration of the ’80s and the ’90s, as his original work progressed from lengthy prog-influenced compositions, such as ‘You Enjoy Myself’ of the mid-’80s, to the more focused (though still complex) songs of Rift (1993). While Phish placed more and more emphasis on group improvisation, Anastasio’s charts gradually fell by the wayside. In 1996, he organized and produced Surrender to the Air, a big-band free jazz excursion.
EXPAND FULL BIO
The transformation of Anastasio’s work from composition-based to improvisation-based was completed in 1997 and 1998 with The Story of the Ghost and The Siket Disc, two Phish releases chiseled out of hours of collective jamming overseen by producer John Siket.Phish performed at a massively successful New Year’s celebration in Big Cypress, FL, and in 2000 came the release of Farmhouse.
Soon after, he wrote and recorded an album with Oysterhead, a power trio of Anastasio along with Primus bassist Les Claypool and former Police drummer Stewart Copeland, beginning a new chapter in his musical history By early 2002, Anastasio prepped for his proper solo release for Elektra. His groovy cool self-titled album was issued that April and Anastasio returned to the road for a string of U.S. tour dates.
The live effort Plasma appeared in April 2003, showcasing more than two hours of performances from Anastasio’s 2002 summer/fall trek of North America. Seven brand-new tracks and a few covers were sprinkled into the double-disc set as well. The all-instrumental Seis de Mayo was released in April 2004, followed by Shine in 2005 and Bar 17 in 2006. The stopgap but quite effective The Horseshoe Curve, comprised of various tracks recorded between 2004 and 2007, appeared in 2007.. The unified Time Turns Elastic was released in 2009. TAB at the Tab, a live album with the traditional four-piece expanded to a septet to include additional horns, was recorded at Atlanta’s famed Tabernacle theater and released in 2010.
