Trey dismantled any awkwardness between himself and the Road Recovery crew of strangers by
instantly seeking information about the teens' experiences, citing connections and similarities to his
own life. Trey's openness and interest in hearing from the group of teens led to a lively discussion
about life and the commonalities that forever unite us all in our human condition.
After everything was said and done, Trey connected with everyone by picking up his guitar and
jamming with Road Recovery teen guitarist - Ryan . Everyone witnessed how two perfect strangers
communicated clearly and effortlessly through the language of music. The room erupted into

"Trey Anastasio is an amazing person to sit down and talk to in so many ways. I feel like I've known
him all my life! He is an inspiration to me in both music and recovery. Trey's musicianship is an
extension of who he is as a person and the combination of speaking and playing with him is what
touched me the most. His playing was phenomenal and he was so supportive of my playing. I will
never forget that jam and his words of wisdom." –Ryan, guitarist/singer, age: 19, sober: 3 years
