“Folk” has become a funny label for Tall Heights. It felt right when they went all-in on a career in music, street performing over 100 days in six months to fund their first recordings. It felt right when their plucky single, “To Be Young,” worked its way into the hearts of their hometown, Boston MA, and spread to the nation on Pandora and Spotify. It felt right when they played 300+ shows in 2013 and 2014 all across the United States.

But with the Spring 2015 release of live singles “Spirit Cold” and “Horse to Water,” Tall Heights stays true to their harmony, cello and guitar laden souls, while creating something brand new. These songs continue Tall Heights’ wistful delving, but they accomplish the remarkable: melancholy without mope. In the orchestrations and the voices lies a measured, rueful beauty, lush enough to beguile the ear, but spare and austere somehow: the aural equivalent of a Massachusetts farmhouse in late October.

“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

“It’s a contemporary sound that is not without it ageless qualities.”

-Chicago Sun Times

“With a guitar, a cello, and two voices in sublime harmony, Tall Heights creates quiet pastoral music out of city life. Call it urban Americana. Call it simply gorgeous.”

-John Platt, WFUV
