Erik Hall’s group In Tall Build­ings set to make its Mil­wau­kee de­but

Wisconsin Gazette - - Opinion - By Mike Hol­loway Staff writer

Erik Hall is a mu­si­cal work­horse.

For most of his adult life, Hall has per­formed and toured un­der the moniker In Tall Build­ings and also with groups such as NOMO, Wild Belle and His Name Is Alive. He’s pro­duced and recorded al­bums for Lean Year, Bambi Kino Duo and Justin Wal­ter, while work­ing on his own record, record­ing each in­stru­ment him­self. In ad­di­tion, he just moved into a new home with his wife, leav­ing Illi­nois for Michi­gan.

But Hall sounds calm on the phone de­spite his hec­tic sched­ule.

His third al­bum, Aki­netic, was re­leased March 2 and Hall will kick off his tour in sup­port of the al­bum in Mil­wau­kee March 23 at the Colec­tivo Back Room. It will be his first time tak­ing a new band on the road and his first Mil­wau­kee per­for­mance as In Tall Build­ings. a ques­tion that needed an an­swer — hav­ing those dead­lines and be­ing ac­count­able to him. I’m some­one who in the past never had any­one else in the room and never had a dead­line.
