Artist Interviews In Tall Buildings

On a drizzly Sunday afternoon, Katie Owens met up with Erik Hall of the solo project, In Tall Buildings, in Chicago's Fulton Market District. Hall disclosed why he likes critics calling his music melancholy, recounted his most prolific moments and detailed his style of striking a balance between waiting and working while crafting Driver.

In Tall Buildings released its second album, Driver, this month on Western Vinyl. You can catch In Tall Buildings live, at Schubas Tavern, on March 5 for the record release show.
