Press release:

Tall Folk will celebrate the release of their album Wiser with a performance at The Boathouse. Jack and Lara - both folk of notable height - joined songwriting forces in late 2020, finding in the duo a new space to explore the writing process. As a US-American import, Jack brings song-writing and Midwestern twang hardened in Americana tradition. Lara softens and juxtaposes the raspy edges with warm, resonant harmonies established through years in the Dunedin folk scene. Together, they have have pushed their unique brand of folk to new heights on their debut album Wiser, recorded by Tom Bell at Chick's Hotel in Port Chalmers. The record displays the duo's diverse, socially concious writing sensitiblities and a locally sourced band of seasoned players.

Wiser is released on January 14th followed by an eleven date national tour. Tall Folk traverse both islands with their live duo set, presenting the tunes in their most intimate and honest form.
