“The Carter Family for the millennial generation." – The Boston Globe
Damn Tall Buildings is an all-acoustic guerrilla roots band from Boston, Massachusetts. While their instrumentation is that of bluegrass, they are not bound to it. With lyrical storytelling and foot-stomping grooves, their songs about love and ramblin’ help to forget the everyday troubles and slip away into their up-tempo hobo-anthems. With members from all around the United States, Damn Tall Buildings is truthful combination of four-different people branding their influences into a single sound.

In 2007, Mathias Kom collected some of his many songs and started a band named after a religious tract handed to him by a wide-eyed zealot in Toronto. Mathias subsequently invited all of his friends to join him in performing these songs about seagulls, shopping malls, and the similarities between love and hurricanes.
There is no categorizing this band. Just come. You might not know what hit you, but you will be happy it did.
