Tall Heights Folk Music Duo

“Intimate and arresting”NPR

“In addition to finger-picked guitar, swelling cello and tight, prismatic vocal harmonies, ‘Spirit Cold’ boasts a bold, airy drum part that propels the song through the peaks and troughs of the arrangement.” – Wall Street Journal

Recently signed with Sony Music Masterworks, multi-talented singer songwriters, composers and instrumentalists Tall Heights will release their new album, Neptune, on August 19 coinciding with U.S. and International tour dates throughout autumn.

Tim Harrington (vocals/guitar) and Paul Wright (vocals/cello) grew up together in the small town of Sturbridge, Massachusetts and started their journey as professional musicians busking on the streets of Boston.

In 2015 they released their EP Holding On, Holding Out which was met with critical acclaim from outlets like NPR and Wall Street Journal who compared their emotive harmonies and poignant lyrics to the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Sigur Ros and Bon Iver. Of particular note is the track “Spirit Cold” which is the lead single from the forthcoming release Neptune. In a short time it has almost 5 million streams on Spotify and is growing quickly.
