High Up announce tour dates (2015)

High Up is a new band hailing from Omaha, Nebraska. After Christine Fink, sister of singer-songwriter Orenda Fink (Azure Ray, O+S, Art in Manila), relocated to Omaha from Muscle Shoals, Alabama she found herself depressed, shuffling between minimum wage jobs and braving the harsh midwestern elements. After many whiskey soaked nights, pondering the past, present and future, the sisters decided to start High Up, an indie “soul” band that showcased Christine’s powerful vocals and Orenda’s seasoned songwriting to take the edge off of the malaise.
It wasn’t long before they were joined by Greg Elsasser (Capgun Coup) on keys and guitar, Eric Ohlsson (Capgun Coup) on drums, and Josh Soto (The Seen) on bass. Orenda and Muscle Shoals transplant Jason Biggers (Religious Husband) round out the band as the horn section, playing trombone and trumpet respectively.  Taking cues from classic soul and the indie rock roots of the members, High Up blends the genres to create a frenetic live show and sound that is at once old and new.
Popular TV has premiered High Up’s new song “Two Weeks” which will be released as a digital single on October 9. Popular TV says, “On the band’s debut single ‘Two Weeks,’ Christine’s soulful vocals and Orenda’s gorgeous songwriting skills make the biggest impact. With a little bit of blues, soul and funk, High Up has created a musical masterpiece that gives Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas a run for their money.” “Two Weeks” is available now to post and share via SoundCloud.
