Audiences across the US and UK have been drawn to their forthright songwriting, lush harmonies, musical daring, and charismatic appeal, to quote Grammy-winner Alison Brown.
DAMN TALL BUILDINGS:
"THE CARTER FAMILY FOR THE MILLENNIAL GENERATION"
The Boston Globe
Get ready for a "fully-immersive and truly electrifying performance" tonight at The Lizard as Damn Tall Buildings and their secret guest ring in the New Year!
Tonight the local fave DAmn Tall Buildings brings their unique string band
The band's creation of "guerrilla roots" is much more than a genre; its a movement intended to open the ears of the general public to old music repurposed for a modern audience. Its their own special remedy, concocted with deft hands and heavy hearts, to relieve this new generation of homogenized music.
Damn Tall Buildings was born in January of 2013, busking on Newbury Street in Boston, MA. Through street performing, this dynamic quartet formed the foundation for the fully-immersive and truly electrifying performance for which they are known today. Priding themselves on their robust tour schedule, DTB has performed at numerous venues and festivals across the continental U.S. most recently including GreyFox Bluegrass Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Podunk Bluegrass Festival, Bluegrass On The Bogs, Vinegrass, and FreshGrass Festival (where they were awarded 2nd place in the 2016 band competition). During the span of these tours, they've shared the stage with artists such as The California Honeydrops, The Dustbowl Revival, Sierra Hull, Reverend Peytons Big Damn Band, Gangstagrass, and many more.
The band has recorded and released two studio recordings since its inception. Their latest release, Damn Tall Buildings (2015) explores more modern production while staying true to their soulful storytelling and foot-stomping grooves. Released July 15 to a sold-out crowd at the legendary Club Passim, the self-titled EP quickly bolstered the bands success on a national level. Their first release, Cure-All (2014) successfully captures unparalleled energy created in a live setting. In the 11 track album, DTB rambles from Portland to Richmond as they try to leave the Wichita Blues back in the hotel room and a Celtic air offers a foundation for the flying notes that rise like the oncoming water in the Ballad of Nigel Williams...Damn Tall Buildings have a way of making old songs feel modern.

Both releases are available for purchase & streaming on iTunes, Spotify, bandcamp, and most everywhere else music is available on the world wide web.
