The Tall Pines are a shack-shakin’, foot–stompin’ rock & roll duo featuring Connie Lynn Petruk, singing her heart out, playing drums on her alligator skin suitcase, and shaking her tambourine. Her partner Christmas Davis, plays guitar, writes the songs and howls along. The Tall Pines revel in the spirits of the late 1960s and early 1970sCountry, Soul, and Swamp-Rock scenes, while working hard to take the sounds they love beyond their history and into the next phase of American Music. Their first self-titled album was voted one of the top ten best records of the year by NPR's Meredith Ochs. They’ve performed live with Country music great Charlie Louvin (RIP) at the CMJ music festival, with Norah Jones and Puss N Boots, Alejandro Escovedo, Justin Townes Earl, Kevn Kinny of Drivn’ and Cryin’, Amy Ray of The Indigo Girls, and many more great folks. They produce a semi-regular live music series in New York City called The Tall Pines Revue, and were recently dubbed a buzz band at the 30A Songwriter’s Festival last January by American Songwriter Magazine. Their new LP "Skeletons of Soul" - Produced by Joel Hamilton (Tom Waits, Black Keys) will be released in the summer of 2019. The Tall Pines are on a mission to remind a world increasingly made of concrete, glass and steel that some music still burns like raw timber.

The Tall are saving up to go on the road as often as possible. If you want to contribute to their tour budget so they can come visit you in your town, please put something in the tip jar.
