Introducing : Tall Talker


Who are Tall talker? 

 Tall Talker are an instrumental experimental rock band sometimes labelled “math” or “prog”. Fusing influences of jazz and funk to create a unique blend of groove driven melodic complexity while remaining accessible and danceable. 

Where are you from and when did you start the band?

Tall Talker are from Leeds and formed when all three members met while studying at Leeds College of Music. Individually the members cover the length of England with drummer Sam Newham hailing from Southampton, bassist Josh Barnett from Coalville (Leicestershire) and guitarist Zach North-Moore from Middlesbrough. Tall Talker formed in early 2014 but didn’t perform their first gig till March of 2015 preferring to hone their live sound and set list. 


What can fans expect from a Tall Talker show? 

Tall Talker gigs have an intimate inviting atmosphere to draw the crowd in and keep them on their toes with rhythmic twists and surprising melodic turns. Being an instrumental band Tall Talker let the music do the talking. 

What can we expect from you in 2018?

 2018 will be our biggest year yet having recently supported bands like The St. Pierre Snake Invasion, TTNG, Tricot and more.  Our debut EP will be out in the next few months and a subsequent tour in the Summer.  Watch this space!!!!
