The River High is melodic rock quartet from Minneapolis that fuses folk-inspired male/female vocals with classic rock strut.
After releasing their self-titled EP in 2016, The River High enjoyed local radio play and gained a loyal following playing venues across the Twin Cities, including Minneapolis clubs Mortimer’s, The Fine Line, and The Cabooze and St. Paul’s Amsterdam Hall, Hat Trick Lounge, and O’Gara’s Bar.
In 2018, Justin Law (vocals, guitar), Rena Rasmussen (vocals, guitar), Joe Masanz (bass) and Jason Anderson (drums) built a new album on riffs and melody. Law and Rasmussen’s vocals layer into one as the guitar and rhythm section banter, resulting in an album that “sits comfortably in the middle of harmonizing doom folk and southern-style stoner rock.”
