High or Hellwater is an American band serving "farm to stereo" comfort food for your senses. Most folks can't resist their deep-fried country swagger, piled high with that 70s rock feel on a batch of well-crafted songs, and served with fresh local harmonies from the members of the group.
Singer/dreamboat Dan Coakley & songwriter/renaissance-man Matt Reasor began as a duo in Los Angeles, and the two grew into band adding pianist Brant "Silk Claw" Kay & others.
High or Hellwater became a touring machine taking their original music coast to coast, mountain to desert, through cities to dirt roads by way of college & factory towns, and into almost any venue where the love of live music lives.
In 2014 High or Hellwater is putting it into high gear and regrouped in Los Angeles to record new songs for the NATURAL ANIMAL EP in addition to a few live and unreleased bonus tracks. High or Hellwater will be support this release in select markets sharing an unquenched passion for making music together.
"Sounding a bit like a grittier, funkier version of the Eagles, the group brings a welcome rock & roll swagger to the alternative country scene."- Steve Leggett
