Born with a desire for the finer things in life, a love of rock n’ roll, and a rich background in the entertainment industry, The High Plains Drifters are the new band that is effortlessly merging various genres with their infectious music that speaks to the rebel in all of us. Gearing up for the fall release of their self-titled album, the band of wanderlust veteran musicians delivers a unique rhythmic backdrop that showcases a diverse abundance of melodies, hooks and tongue-in-cheek lyrical conceptions that make it irresistible not to sing along. The EP produced by Greg Cohen (Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake and more) conceptualizes a listening experience of a sonic road trip across the country where your radio station of choice fuses into various genres as you travel. As they bend through various genres, one this is certain: The High Plain Drifters offers a body of work of pure “feel good” systematic cohesion.
