A talented duo based out of Boston, Massachusetts, Tall Heights' evocative, atmosphere-driven pop confections draw from both progressive folk and electro-tinged indie pop, invoking names like Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Fleet Foxes, and Jose Gonzalez.
Founded in 2010 by vocalist/guitarist Tim Harrington and vocalist/cellist Paul Wright, both of whom met in their shared hometown of Sturbridge, the duo spent their early days musically patrolling the streets of Boston -- they funded their debut album with a marathon 100-day busking session. After issuing a pair of independent EPs in 2011 and 2012, Tall Heights released their debut LP, 2013's Man of Stone. All three outings reflected the well-honed, acoustic-based sound that they had been perfecting on the city streets over the years. They expanded that sound on 2015's Holding On, Holding Out EP, which introduced drums, electric guitar, and keyboard into the mix. The duo inked a deal with Sony Masterworks shortly thereafter, and in 2016 released their full-length major-label debut Neptune. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
