The Tower & The Fool
THE TOWER & THE FOOL initially started as a songwriting project between friends Alex Correia
and Chris Rosenquest. As writing and recording progressed, the duo added the drumming of their
producer/friend Mike Poorman (ex-HOTROD CIRCUIT), Jon Tucker on bass, Zac Clark on keys,
and longtime friend Chris Capaldi on lead and slide guitars. After hearing the songs with their full
instrumentation, Correia and Rosenquest decided to permanently add the additional lineup, making
THE TOWER & THE FOOL a full time band.
How Long is THE TOWER & THE FOOL’s debut full-length and follow-up to their critically acclaimed
Run For Cover 7”/EP XIII. Reverb-y warmth weaves its way through THE TOWER & THE
FOOL’s dynamic Americana indie rock instrumentation and tuneful, yearning vocals. Upbeat tracks
like the tambourine shaking “Dive Bar” drip with a Springsteen-esque working class desperation.
In contrast, sorrowful ballads showcase the group’s depth and knack for arrangement behind
impossibly catchy melodies and heartrending storytelling.
