The Daredevil Christopher Wright w. Maryse Smith + Nyiko Beguin – 6.11.10

Tonight. The tunes continue on at The Monkey House.

Quite the week of music all around.  The Daredevil Christopher Wright are back again! Last time at the Bean in February was absolutely beautiful.

The Daredevil Christopher Wright

The phrase, “the agony of the leaves,” derives from hot water pouring over tea leaves. As the tea steeps and the leaves unfurl, they release various flavors to the water, evolving the taste.

While The Daredevil Christopher Wright’s debut album, In Deference to a Broken Back, doesn’t dramatize the agonies given them, they do face the weighty issues of cancer, death, and loss with a realistic and offbeat tone.

Their joyful music is layered with the profundity of small moments that flavor life.

Maryse Smith

An uncommonly gifted songwriter, she wields both assets with such seamless fluidity, they appear inextricable from one another. Much like Leslie Feist or Zooey Deschanel — Smith’s timbre bears a strong resemblance to that of the latter singer — at times you could believe that certain phrases exist only so that she could sing them. It’s a rare symbiosis. – 7 Days VT
