about

"The Darkness Comes", Christy Smith's second album as The Tender Fruit, was written during a time of dislocation in which she pared down her belongings and spent many months roaming - house-sitting, visiting friends and camping under the stars. Through it all, Smith's next batch of songs came into clear focus and, with the help of many talented friends, a new album emerged.

At times mournful, at times hopeful - "The Darkness Comes" attempts to unravel our tangled notions of home: what is it, where is it, who is it, and how do we know when we've arrived?
