New Music Monday: High Valley

High Valley, comprised of brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel are bringing back the basic, classic, country music feel with their simple chord patterns and duet-styled melodies. Growing up in a small community in Alberta, Canada, these two brothers gained their musical inspiration from listening to 80s and 90s country tunes.  They grew up with a Mennonite upbringing due to their parent's Amish beliefs, and as a result they were also very heavily influenced by gospel music as well. In the year 2000, the brothers moved to Nashville Tennessee, and began recording with a very small budget. Their single Make You Mine has already been streamed 8 million times, and their cover of I'll Fly Away has gotten an incredible amount of attention as well. Their tempos and musical style strongly resembles that of Mumford & Sons, and even though Make You Mine (featured below) has such a simple, catchy melody that features powerful vocals from both brothers, their sound is unlike any other.

High Valley takes a lot of pride in the fact that all of their songs and live performances have been viewed as "family friendly" and "genuine old school," and they are very adamant about keeping their message positive and uplifting. Through all of their releases, this message is definitely front and center.
