In the summer of 2010, Tim Harrington and Paul Wright were playing for spare change in Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace. In two short years since, Tall Heights has headlined packed listening rooms across the USA, showcased at South By Southwest Music Festival, and performed alongside national acts like David Wilcox, Ryan Montbleau, and Andrew Belle. For the duo's debut full-length effort, Man of Stone (May, 2013), Tall Heights returns to the home studio, sinking deeper into the vast world they've meticulously built for two. The title track and first single, Man of Stone, recalls a time when cavemen documented day-to-day existence on the walls of their stone-sheltered dwellings. "Emblems of cavemen they taught me / the importance of typing in bold," contextualizes the rest of the record and challenges a careful listener to view each song as a vital documentation of what is both banal and extraordinary. The record exists in a fire-lit, shadowy space for their growing army of fans to inhabit. After two powerful EPs, The Running of the Bulls EP (2012) and Rafters (2011), there has been a growing cry for more from these young artists, and Tall Heights delivers with an LP of grand vision and scale. RECENT PRAISE "Tall Heights's delicate melodies and gentle harmonies create a rare public space where the people can slow down, even stop, and suspend the chaos of city life in exchange for some really great music."-Meghna Chakrabarti, NPR "if you still remember how happy your ears were when you first listened to Bon Iver or Arcade Fire and realized you'd stumbled into singer/songwriter oblivion... you can trust me when I say this show is worth seeing." - Boston Magazine "...beautiful harmonies, exquisite musicianship, intricate songwriting. I love it when the bar is set so high" -David Wilcox.
