Boston based folk group tours the Northwest | Arts & Culture
Following the release of their first full length EP, Boston based duo Tall Heights is bringing their harmonies to the northwest. The band will stop in Spokane on Wednesday evening and will play in Moses Lake following several shows in Montana.
“We call it folk pop,” said Paul Wright. Tall Heights uses cello and guitar to compliment harmonies that are reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel. Wright and his band mate Tim Harrington have come a long way since they decided to take music seriously three years ago.
After releasing two LP's in 2011 and 2012, Tall Heights released their first EP in May entitled Man of Stone. The EP is self released and Wright describes it as a fan funded record.
“It's essentially our business card,” said Wright. Having a full length album allows the band to reach a broader audience. This is their second trip to the Northwest since Man of Stone was released.
“People seem to respond to our music here,” said Wright. Tall Heights is playing a combination of both club shows and college shows. On Wednesday night they'll play for students at Gonzaga University and on October 8th they'll take their music to Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake.
“You have a captive audience,” Wright said of playing at colleges. “Its a nice way for us to anchor our tour, the goal is to build something that we can return to.”
