A message from TALL HEIGHTS:

We’ve made the decision to postpone the first leg of our 2022 Juniors Release Tour (01/12 – 01/30).

arriving at this decision has been all-consuming. we’ve been feeling so many emotions: sorrow, concern, uncertainty, fatigue, anger, relief. maybe you’re feeling some of that too?

ultimately, we didn’t want anyone to have to choose between attending a show and feeling safe. keeping yourself and your loved ones safe should never be part of the calculation. we want you to be here because you love the music and want to share in something real, human, and lasting… sans fear.

with all of that said, we’re working on rescheduling the run so hold on to your tickets and we’ll announce new dates soon. hopefully andrea van kampen will be able to join us as well. 

be well, juniors.

p.s. our 2nd leg of dates with the collection (2/22 – 3/2) are proceeding as planned

The third full-length from Tall Heights, Juniors emerged from a period of profound turmoil and revelation for the Massachusetts duo. In the span of five months, Paul Wright and Tim Harrington experienced a convergence of events that included major health and substance-abuse crises among their closest loved ones, saying goodbye to Harrington’s grandfather and to a beloved grandfather figure for Wright, and—in far happier, yet still intense news—the announcement that each of their wives was expecting. Compounded by a series of shake-ups in their professional life, that upheaval coincided with the start of the pandemic. Rather than succumbing to the tremendous pressure of that point in time, Tall Heights chose to confront the chaos by creating within it. The result: an album that precisely channels the pain, uncertainty, and unbridled joy of its inception.

As they set to work on Juniors, Harrington and Wright discovered an unexpected outcome of the loss that they’d endured: a shift in mindset that enabled them to embrace a boundless curiosity and exploratory spirit even more powerful than when they first formed Tall Heights (an endeavor that began when Harrington, on guitar, and Wright, on cello, used to busk on the streets of Boston back in the late 2000s). In a nod to the wide-eyed perspective that arose from the album’s creation, the duo chose a title evocative of youthful wonder. “After everything we went through, we came to a place of understanding that we have no control, that each new day is an adventure we need to approach with beginner’s eyes,” says Harrington. Wright adds: “Through all the discomfort, we took it as our mission to stay humble and hungry, to know that everything will change and to be prepared to find something of real value in that—and to find ourselves in it, too.”

The follow-up to 2018’s Pretty Colors For Your Actions, Juniors came to life at “The Tall House”—the Northeastern Massachusetts home where Wright and Harrington lived together for six years with their wives, pets, and Harrington’s firstborn son, eventually moving out in August 2020. In a departure from the elaborate production process that yielded its predecessor, the two musicians wrote and recorded most of Juniors in isolation, holing up on the third floor of the household they liken to a joyfully anarchic artist commune.
