Biography: 1) The Heights are an indie/rock band, mostly from Wales, on the 'Best Before' record label. They have released four singles, 'Long Way Home', 'Jamaica Beer Eyes', 'Bad News' and 'For Real'. The bands debut album 'Toys and Kings' is due out on June 18th 2007. They've toured with The Crimea, Stellastarr*, labelmates The Morning After Girls and Editors and played numerous festivals, including Glastonbury, Fflam, 02 wireless, Lovebox in the UK with numerous other festivals in Europe and North America. The band split shortly thereafter due to one too many pissed up fights while on the road...

2) The Heights is the name of a television show with a theme song, 'How Do You Talk to Angel', sung by cast member Jamie Walters which reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The Heights became one of only 12 artists to reach number one without ever charting in the Top 100 again, although Walters did later reach the Top 20 under his own name

3) The Heights is the name of a Dutch guitarpop band. They released their first album Beachyhead in 2005 on 'Excelsior Recordings'. The song Cinnamon was recently chosen for the Everything After All sample CD.
The band consists of Naomi van der Ven (guitar/vocals), Mark van Rijnsberk (bass/vocals), Davy van der Putten (keyboards/percussion) and Marc van der Holst (drums).
Early 2010 they released their follow-up called "Dream Maps" also on Excelsior Recordings. It deals with the separation between singer Naomi van der Ven and drummer Marc van der Holst.
Marc plays on the album but has been replaced with Andries Hannaart for the short tour to support the new album. The music on the new album is more rock orientated mostly because of the use of organ by Davy. They are looking for gigs all through 2010 so feel free to mail them for a booking (The Heights).
