Norwegian/American band based in Oslo, Norway
Every once in a long while things just seem to come together naturally, as if they had been aligned in the stars, or perhaps by destiny. Such is the story of the creation of High Red.
Hailing from the heartlands of both the United States and Norway, the combined members of the High Red are on a mission to spread their musical message to audiences the world over. With nothing short of awe-inspiring live performances, High Red will embark on a musical journey right in front of your eyes and ears. And all you have to do is witness.
With countless appearances sharing the stage with world-class touring acts (Robben Ford, Michael Landau, Kirk Fletcher, etc) in Scandinavia, Europe, and the USA, it was only a matter of time before Jon, Per, Iver, and Adam were to embark on their own musical endeavor – as High Red.
Drawing inspiration from heavy study and upbringing in gospel-infused soul music and playing the blues everywhere from Los Angeles to Stockholm, these boys create a genre-splitting version of urban sleek and rural grit.
With Adam Douglas’ vocal prowess and avant-garde guitar playing, Per Øystein Erstad’s command of the bass, Jon Reidar Furulund’s relentless groove behind the drum kit, Iver Olav Erstad’s mastery of the Hammond Organ, Clavinet, Rhodes, and piano – High Red has a message for you… Are you ready to listen?
