The Tender Fruit grows deep in the sweltering streets of central NC where its tenuous songs ring prosaic, full-tinny & true. It's the musical project of Christy Smith, a North Carolina native who grew up listening to gospel & doo-wap (and not much else). She has since expanded her repertoire, but that mix of doddering hymns and swooshy soft pop can still be found in the music of the The Tender Fruit.
