"Local Indie Folk Duo High Tea
Unleash New EP "Old Cowboy"

High Tea, the indie-folk duo hailing from Boston MA, is a concoction of sweepingly soulful harmonies, guitar riffs to knock your socks off, and a refreshing blend of old blues and new pop. Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Isabella DeHerdt and vocalist/ percussionist Isaac Eliot have come together to fill spaces with homegrown story telling and Lumineer-esque vocals. Their songs are ripe with americana heartbreak and tell tales of growing up, going wild, and always coming back to the ones you love.  Come sit by the fire and find a piece of yourself in the music of High Tea.

Their latest release, "Old Cowboy", is an acoustic EP that weaves through stories of learning how to love, how to let go, and how to find one's power. The bluesy guitar lines and wailing vocals travel through tales of  a witchy girl named Rosey who runs from her cursed town in the hills, to that of a wistful and shadowy cowboy who shares his secrets and woes in the darkly lit room of an old western bar. "Old Cowboy" introduces listeners to poignant characters who won't be soon forgotten. High Tea's musicality and playful instrumental writing is highlighted on tunes like "Invincible" and "Rosey", while ballads like "'O'er My Skin" and "Let's Make A List" tug at heartstrings with the duo's swelling vocals and meaningful lyricism. High Tea writes from the heart, and their songs are rooted in intimate personal experience yet strive to find the universal understandings of life that all audience members will be able to connect with. High Tea invites listeners into their lives, and the worlds they've created.
