Tall Heights have relentlessly built a career from the ground up. Starting as buskers on the streets of Boston and now performing in packed venues across North America, Europe and beyond, the duo has distilled their sound in an organic and unselfconscious way. The unmistakable DNA of their music draws on many elements, but the blend of their two distinct voices, in both harmony and unison, is what elevates it and separates it from the pack.
Hailing from the Boston area, Paul Wright and Tim Harrington met each other in their hometown of Sturbridge through Tim’s older brother. The friendship blossomed in high school when they both took up the guitar and began working on music together. It didn’t take long for them to see the potential hidden in these casual jam sessions. As Paul recalls, “Tim transformed from kid brother to musical collaborator over the course of a summer.”
Combining Paul’s lifetime of classical training, Harrington’s spontaneous artistic instincts and the prismatic union of their unique voices, Tall Heights’ sonic imprint is in a category all its own.
Tall Heights’ recordings have amassed over 275 million streams and they’ve toured alongside groups like Judah & the Lion, Colony House, The Paper Kites and Magic Giant.
Entitled “The Mountain,” their new single was inspired by a photograph that a friend texted to the band with the news that his grandfather had passed away. The grandfather had spent his final days at home, peacefully looking at the mountains that he and his wife loved so much. The song is characterized by love, loss and the endless sense of devotion we feel after losing special people in our lives.
“It’s an agnostic, naturalist’s take on the afterlife: “You always loved that mountain, so honey, that’s where you’ll go. Not trying to be morbid, but at the end of your road, if you go somewhere else before I do, I’ll be looking at the mountain, honey, I’ll be making eyes at you.” Lush harmonies, gentle strumming of the acoustic guitar and dreamy romantic soundscapes delicately intertwine to form a heartfelt love letter to those that we’ve lost along the way. The single is produced by Mike Mogis (Phoebe Bridgers, Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit).
The duo will be spending the summer traveling the country and playing non-traditional outdoor venues.
