How are a couple of creative misfits from New York City reinventing Americana with a fuzz box and an old suit case? Christmas Davis and Connie Lynn Petruk are the bride and groom of the Tall Pines’ perfect union, the man in black setting fire to the songs and the woman in white lifting them to the heavens – putting the soul back into music. They are open about their love for the people who connect with what they are doing, and they are glad to be on your side. It’s not easy to label what they do; “Outlaw Gospel” “Swamp Rock,” “Voodoo Country,” call it what you like, Chris and Connie’s “Tall Pines Music” proves that there’s still plenty of soul echoing through the urban canyons of NYC.
They’ve performed with Country music great Charlie Louvin (RIP), Norah Jones and Puss N Boots, Justin Townes Earl, Kevn Kinny of Drivn’ and Cryin’, Amy Ray of The Indigo Girls, and many more.
“With long straight hair falling over sky-high cheekbones and a penchant for floor-length dresses, Connie Petruk looks like she stepped out of late ’60s/early ’70s Nashville and sings like the lost sister of Bobbie Gentry or Dusty Springfield. Her honeyed alto will melt the frost off your windshield, and the band’s confident backing matches her attitude flawlessly. The Tall Pines are equal parts soul and twang, molasses and moonshine, sass and skill.” NPR Music
