Hot Takes: Getting to know The Higher

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce (or in today’s case, re-introduce) themselves to you, the reader.

Q1 – Who is in your band?

 We are “The Higher” from Las Vegas and current members are myself (Seth Trotter) vocalist, Reggie Ragan guitarist, and George Lind drummer. 

Q2 – What is your take on your own sound?

We are a pop rock band from the punk/emo days and sound like a mixture pop/rock/R&B.

Q3 – If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

I’d say our biggest single to date is a song called Insurance? I’d show them that song first but definitely would want to show them our new single Free Ride!

Q4 – What is the plan for 2022?

Recording more music and playing more shows!

Q5 – What is the one song you wish you wrote?

Bohemian Rhapsody!!! The greatest song of all time!!!

Q6 – What three bands inspired or continue to inspire you the most?

The 1975, The Eagles, and Panic @ the Disco

Q7 – Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

Live At Furnace Fest or When We Were Hungry Fest and online via YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music among others…

Q8 – If your band was an animal, what would it be and why?

Hardest question of them all. I’d say a sloth 🦥 cause we slowly creep our way into peoples hearts when they get to know us.
