High & Rising Bio
Out of Western Wisconsin and the banks of the mighty Mississippi River grew this Groovy Grass band of music makers. High & Rising is known for their unique combination of instruments that bring a fresh groovy sound to the Bluegrass & Folk American scene. Youll hear a range of original and jammy cover songs designed to bring good vibes and fun.
Quickly blazing a name for themselves with their progressive approach to American folk music, Fireside Collective delights listeners with memorable melodies and contemporary songwriting. Formed in the mountain city of Asheville North Carolina, the band plays original songs on stringed instruments, intended for a modern audience. Following the release of their debut album Shadows and Dreams, the band hit the road seeking to engage audiences with their energetic live show built on instrumental proficiency, colorful harmonies, and innovative musical arrangements.
Well what do you call it?
Bluegrass, Newgrass, perhaps Progressive folk These are some descriptions mandolinist and songwriter Jesse Iaquinto chooses to identify with. Depending on where you come from and your experience with folk music, you may think were very traditional, or on the other hand, consider us a progressive act. We appreciate both ends of the spectrum and may lie on a different end on any given night. While roots music lies at the core of the Collectives songs, a willingness to explore the boundaries and present relevant new material remains fundamental.
The band burst onto the scene in early 2014 following the release of Shadows and Dreams. The album weaves bluegrass, funk, rock, and blues influences into a refreshing representation of modern folk music. From the opening track Poor Soul with its energetic bluegrass overtones to the closer Shine the Way Home, the album takes listeners on a journey through simple love songs to complex themes such as metaphysics and coexistence. The album, recorded in Asheville at Sound Temple Studios, features guest musicians from Ashevilles rich acoustic music scene alongside members of the Fireside Collective.
