David Duchovny recording folk album

David Duchovny on His Folksy Debut Album: 'I'm Never Going to Win 'American Idol' But I Do Have Something to Say'

But Duchovny has been harboring musical aspirations since he first picked up a guitar four years ago. "I wanted to become decent enough to play songs to amuse myself," he says.
