Captivating vocal harmonies drive a folk-inspired accompaniment of cello and acoustic guitar. Powerful, intimate recordings and performances have fueled a burning demand for Boston-based duo, Tall Heights, in a thriving national folk scene.

In the summer of 2010, Tim Harrington and Paul Wright were playing for spare change in Boston’s Faneuil Hall Marketplace. In three fast years, Tall Heights has put on hundreds of shows, headlining packed listening rooms across the country,and shared stages with national acts like David Wilcox, Laura Marling, Ryan Montbleau, Andrew Belle, Lori McKenna, and many more.

After two powerful EPs, Rafters (2011) and The Running of the Bulls (2012), there has been a growing cry for more from these young artists, and Tall Heights delivers with an LP of grand vision and scale. For their debut full length effort, Man of Stone (May, 2013), Tall Heights hit 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.
