When asked how they would classify their style of music, The Higher Choir’s front-man Chance Walls stated “we’re like a full glass of Southern Rock and Blues backed with a Folk chaser…but most folks call us Southern Blues Rock.” One thing is sure…where The Higher Choir plays, a party ensues. Their music is raucous and rowdy and just good old rock and roll fun.
Their forever growing (and quite large already) following and their comfort level with each other on stage is surprising for a band that only started jamming a few years ago. The band has even gone through it’s share of line-up changes, though guitarists Alan Connor and Grant Mitchell, drummer Wayne Glass, and Walls himself have always been a constant. “The line-up we have now with Harold Sellers, Pozz and Stephen Darley is awesome. We feel the band in this fashion has really solidified” the singer added.
THC’s unique sound is a direct reflection of each players broad range of influence… though they have one thing in common; The South. Collectively they are all southern boys at heart. They grew up here, they learned to play here, they’re raising families here. And they love playing music so they do it, a lot.
The band released their first EP last summer “Half-Way Home” and are ready to serve up more of their ‘good ol’ southern luvin’ with their follow up CD “Steeped In Southern Tradition” due out sometime this month.
You can see The Higher Choir live Saturday, May 11th at Crescendo Fest (Nonis) and also Friday, June 28th at Smith’s Olde Bar in Atlanta, GA with New Madrid and Sam Sniper as the band celebrates the release of their new album “Steeped in Southern Tradition.”
“We are just trying to play great shows, make great records but above all have a great time”
