JPR Live Session: Tall Heights (2021)

After a turbulent couple of years, the duo returns with a brand new album due out in January.

The orbits of Tim Harrington and Paul Wright have been intersecting since before high school (Paul was childhood friends with Tim's older brother), but it was after Tim graduated college in 2010 that the two combined forces and Tall Heights was born.

Through the pandemic, the duo (along with their growing families) shared a house, and that quarantine bubble proximity led to many nights of songwriting and music creation. Their new album Juniors, due out in January, is the result of that chaotic environment. "We translated the global and personal tumult into our songwriting, and we worked on it every day," says Wright. That period of creativity led to the tracking of 26 tunes, from which the album's final selections were chosen.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and conversations.
