Kingblind Band Profile (The High Strung)

Motor City boys Chad Stocker, Josh Malerman, Mark Owen and Derek Berk comprise the exciting rock & roll of the High Strung. Formed in summer 2000, the modern-rock foursome has a legacy that stretches back to elementary school. Once in college, the members of the High Strung played in and around the Midwest and concentrated on getting enough material ready for a proper album. A series of EPs and the self-released full-length, As Is came and went, as did the High Strung’s attachment to Detroit. They picked up and moved to Williamsburg, NY just as they were supposed to make an album for Tee Pee. In 2001, the High Strung joined producer Jim Diamond (Electric Six, the Mooney Suzuki, the White Stripes) for These Are Good Times. The foxy retro-garage album appeared in summer 2003. In 2004, Owen left the band, which continued as a trio; early in 2005, they reunited with Diamond and returned to their home Detriot (for good) for their second album, Moxie Bravo.

R.I.Y.L:: The Who, Cheap Trick, Big Star, Teenage Fanclub, Guided By Voices, The Sonics, The Dirtbombs etc.
