The Shepherd’s Pie song. Trey came home late, maybe three, sat down and recorded this on his couch. Just as you hear it. We filmed this in a bar in Manhattan. The keep is a big fan and let us film while the bar was open. “I said the line, ‘I eat my shit,’ and looked over to see a Postman taking a bite of a cheeseburger, just frozen, unable to bite down when I said the line,” says Trey. Talk about home-made.
I’m not qualified to make a clinical diagnosis, but Trey Green is nuts. Bonkers. Stark-raving mad. Let me be clear about this. Trey Green is indubitably, wonderfully insane. His bio references accomplishments such as being hospitalized with several fish lodged in his nasal passage and being arrested on three occasions for failing to move at a green light. Musically, Green is an enigmatic figure, playing whatever he pleases from moment to moment. Stylistic consistency goes out the window in favor of whatever pleases him. This probably explains why Green connects so well with audiences. There is no planning, no pre-packaged musical experience. Trey Green is what he is, like it or not. His debut album, Trey Green was made after the same fashion. No matter who you are, you’ll find something you like here.
Every now and again there’s an artist whose sense of humour is so absurdly funny that you uncontrollably spew streams of scalding hot java out of your nostrils. Trey Green is one of those artists.
If you like artists who never leave you confused after you listen to their songs, then you just might like Trey Green. Green was born in Memphis, Tennessee and currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts. He was once hospitalized for having “several live fish lodged in his nasal passage” and has been arrested three times for failing to move at a green light.
