Conventional wisdom says the two frontmen of a band shouldn’t live on opposite sides of the United States, but that's never seemed to deter Avi Vinocur and Patrick Dyer Wolf.
Goodnight, Texas is a tough-to-define storytelling folk rock band whose strength lies in unexpected sweet spots. Drawing their name from Pat and Avi’s onetime geographic midpoint (the real town of Goodnight in the State of Texas, a tiny hamlet east of Amarillo directly betwixt San Francisco, CA and Chapel Hill, NC), the five-piece band also exists at the center of its songwriters’ contrasting styles — via a 1913 Gibson A mandolin and a 2015 Danelectro Baritone Guitar, at the crossroads of folk and blues and rock ‘n’ roll, in a place where dry wit and dark truths meet hope and utmost sincerity.
Storytellingis something of a Texas tradition. Tall hats and even taller tales are woveninto the fabric of The Lone Star State, and singer-songwriter Jarrod Dickensoncan spin a yarn with the best of them. Hailing from Waco, now based inNashville via Brooklyn, Dickenson spends most of his time on the road bringinghis own particular brand of soulful Americana to a wide variety of music lovingaudiences around the globe.
