Frith pulls some orchestral pop strings on "Pinocchio"

The track Pinocchio by Frith is instantly whimsical and kind of surreal. The almost hyper cadence with imagery that flutters by in waves of orchestrated blends of world music tones, 70's chamber pop, and a splash of something like 40's cotton club jazz tones with an amazing trumpet outro played by Stewart Cole (Edward Sharpe, Foster the People, The White Stripes) feels like a twisted blend of Tame Impala and George Gershwin. So very Cool. 

Travis Frith Warner is a Los Angeles songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, arranger and orchestrator. He started classical piano at age 8 turning to jazz and classical guitar in his teens. He is self taught in a variety of instruments including bass, drums, trumpet and Transylvanian guillotine harp. In 2008 he began working for composer David Campbell (Adele, Beck, Michael Jackson) shortly after Warner began incorporating orchestral, classical music into his own indie pop sound.
