KHIGH starts as a heavy rock project in late 2002 from an intuition of Kris, its founder and songwriter in the role of guitarist and singer. By the end of the same year Kris after a long, life-time activity as multi-instrumentalist and guitarist of hard rock acts between Europe and America, starts gathering a roster of skilled musicians in Los Angeles, CA to give life to his brand new 3-piece-band.
In a couple of months with a rocky rhythm section, "Liquid Demo" is recorded and mixed at StarNIX Studios.
The result is a very personal sounding 8-song CD inspired by a wide variety of influences with a common element: an immediately recognizable guitar style.
The mix of heavy rock sounds that represent the best of both the American and European metal heritage with some exotic flavors, intriguing solos and original compositions is what gives the band a distinctive groove that goes way beyond the common labeling conventions, necessary in a way, but limiting any music production nowadays.
These are the elements that impressed some labels so much that after a few months the band got signed to Power Play Records of NY and scheduled the release of the debut album "Wise Hedonist" for February 15, 2005.
The lyrics of these compositions represent the due complement to the intuitions and intricate musical weavings of the band by describing the philosophical visions of the songwriter about the contemporary world and his investigations about the true human nature.
So this year sees KHIGH as a brand new heavy rock reality ready to tour all over the world and release its debut album "Wise Hedonist" to an ever growing fringe of fans that can follow the news of the band and keep up-to-date about the concerts and all the most recent events on this official website http://www.khigh.com
