This entry contains legacy content from the earler's FAQ file and/or from earlier editions of The Phish Companion. It may be incomplete and/or out-of-date, but we hope to update it soon.

As Phish got back together in 2009, guitarist Trey Anastasio was on the hunt for a songwriting partner. A mutual friend introduced Anastasio to songwriter/performer Amanda Green and the pair struck up a working relationship. Green, who like Anastasio resides on Manhattan's Upper West Side, has since written a number of songs with Trey namely "Burn That Bridge," "Summer of '89" and "My Problem Right There." 


Amanda Green is the daughter of Tony Award-winning actress Phyliss Newman and famed playright Adolph Green, a seven-time Tony winner. With that pedigree it's no surprise Green wound up getting into acting at an early age and pursued a career in entertainment after graduating from Brown University. Green's admiration for the music of Lyle Lovett led her to move to Nashville in the '90s to write country songs. is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
