Video: Holy Cross Alumnus Makes Musical Debut on "Conan"

Broadway World


Tall Heights, a Boston-based duo comprised of Tim Harrington ’10 and Paul Wright, a 2007 graduate from Dartmouth College, performed their hit single “Spirit Cold” off of their major label album, “Neptune,” on "Conan," which is hosted by Conan O'Brien, and airs on TBS.

Harrington, who majored in English with a concentration in creative writing while at the College, developed his love for music during Tuesday night 10-Spot performances, where musicians had the opportunity to showcase their talents to the campus. "The music scene at Holy Cross, I believe, was underrated," he said in a Holy Cross Magazine interview. "There were so many great musicians on campus. People who loved listening and were open-minded had a lot of options at Holy Cross."

Tall Heights’ most recent single “Spirit Cold” garnered over 7.5 million streams on Spotify. Currently, the band is on a national tour with stops in Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
