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.

“The Mountain” was inspired by a photograph of a friend’s grandfather on his death bed overlooking the Green Mountains of Vermont. Seeing the sun glinting on the face of a man about to die made us think about the love people sometimes find in this world: a love strong enough to encounter and endure death together and/or alone, soon or in the distant future. it’s a song for the living; those of us keeping promises we made to love on and never forget, affixing ephemeral human connection to the eternal natural world.

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.

“The Mountain” is available now on Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and wherever you get music:
