The Tall Pines - Always True

CLIP 2:50 | Jan 16, 2013

The Tall Pines perform at Birch Cafe in NYC.

Raw, minimalist, and sometimes dark, The Tall Pines turn the folk tradition upside-down. The band’s chief songwriter, Christmas Davis, and it’s lead singer, Connie Lynn Petruk, are also husband and wife (not in The White Stripes sense). While they usually play with a larger band, we got a stripped down two-person set, and a look at the pure creativity of the collaborative duo in the intimate setting of the Library at Birch Coffee in New York.

If you hadn’t been told they were love-birds, you’d have figured it out eventually, as evidenced by the song “Spend My Life With You,” a song they wrote for a friend’s wedding, but is clearly just as much about them. This song has been stuck in our heads since we first heard it.

But they aren’t all ruckus and romance. They also have a dark side. The grim and moody “If The Devil Knows You By Name” warns that if the evil has its eyes on you, you ought to make sure good is on your side.
