It starts with good songs — lyrics that resonate, melodies that linger, an occasional left turn that stretches the ear… that’s where Tall Tales lives. We’re all over a wide range of American and international influences, and we love to sprinkle that magic dust over a good song just to see where it’ll go. C’mon out and be surprised with us!

Tall Tales


At the core of Asheville-based Tall Tales stand Chris Rosser (vocals, guitars, piano, oud, dotar, melodica), Al Schlimm (guitars), Joan D’Entremont (vocals), Zack Page (basses), and Bill Berg (percussion). While they each keep busy with their own far-ranging musical ventures, they greatly look forward to the occasional Tall Tales reunion.

Chris is an accomplished songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Al brings decades of guitar inspiration to the stage, Joan’s lovely alto draws listeners into her uniquely vulnerable space, and Zack and Bill never fail to lay down a compelling rhythmic foundation.
