Simple Music Video Series: Patrick Dyer Wolf of Goodnight, Texas plays "Wristwatch"

Posted by on Fri, Jan 11, 2013 at 4:04 PM

In early 2012, Christy Smith performed a few songs from her Tender Fruit project for this video series. She brought along her duet partner, Patrick Dyer Wolf. After a few duo and solo tunes, we asked Patrick to play us a tune. As a sideman for The Tender Fruit, his delicate touches accented Smith's songs well.

Today, his primary group is called Goodnight, Texas; in late 2012, they released their debut CD, A Long Life of Living, an upbeat and old-timey disc. The song we present today, "Wristwatch," falls between The Tender Fruit and Goodnight, Texas. It is a brooding, melodic number with a soft and weary delivery.

As for future collaborations with Christy Smith and the Tender Fruit, he says, "She, and I, to a lesser extent, have been in record mode in recent months and haven't done too many shows, but you can look out for a new record and more from The Tender Fruit in the not too distant future."

Meanwhile, Goodnight, Texas is about to hit the road for the next two months, but first they will play The City Tap in Pittsboro on Jan. 25.
