The Tall Pines are a shack shakin’ Country /Soul band featuring Canadian singer Connie Lynn Petruk and her song writing partner Christmas Davis. Taking cues from the ruckus Nashville and Memphis scenes of the late 1960s and early 1970s, The Tall Pines debut album was featured as one of NPR’s Top Ten Best Albums of 2007. Last summer’s “Campfire Songs” album continues to convert fans to The Tall Pines camp, receiving praise from The New York Times, Vintage Guitar Magazine, The Village Voice, as well as many online music blogs. “Campfire Songs” was featured on the iTunes Store’s “New and Noteworthy” front page for nearly the entire summer of 2009, The band has supported Classic Country Legend Charlie Louvin (at the CMJ Music Festival), and they’ve opened for Roni Stoneman (of TV’s “Hee Haw”), while also playing with more contemporary performers Amy Helm (of Ollabelle), Carrie Rodriguez and Justin Townes Earle. Connie Lynn has performed and recorded with David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Ronnie Spector, Joan Jett, and many more folks you know. The Tall Pines classic songs put her unique and powerful voice in the spotlight, where it belongs.
