Damn Tall Buildings is an acoustic guerrilla roots band from Boston. 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 people to forget their everyday troubles and slip away with  up-tempo hobo anthems. With members from all around the United States, Damn Tall Buildings is truly a combination of four different people melding their influences into a single sound.

Emma Hern is a singer-songwriter whose music is steeped in the late '60s and early '70s rock and blues she was raised on in Virginia. Her powerhouse rock vocals meld with her lyrical storytelling and thick harmonies to create a sound reminiscent of a contemporary Fleetwood Mac. Her electricity on stage will capture any audience. With her EP, American Gypsy, Hern hits the Boston scene for the first time as a solo artist.
