Bio

For rock and roll trio Highly Suspect, making and performing music isn't a hobby, or even a profession. It's a way of life. Founded by twins Rich and Ryan Meyer, and their best friend Johnny Stevens in 2009, this literal band of brothers have gone from playing cover sets on the shores of Cape Cod, to playing original material at countless venues and dive bars in New York City. They now live in Brooklyn, and after recording a 3 song EP The Worst Humans with producer Joel Hamilton (Elvis Costello, Plastic Ono Band, Black Keys/Wu-Tang Clan), are working on a new album. Their current sound has been to compared to Band of Skulls, Pink Floyd, and early Kings of Leon. In their single "Bath Salts‚" The twins play off their primal connection to hold down a rocking, tension filled rhythm section, while lead singer Johnny's dirty, lo-fi vocals play into the song's themes of recklessness and wasted youth. "We have been rogue, nomadic, bohemian, and poor for years now, but we stay together because this life and this music is what we love," says Johnny. The band is currently working on new material some of the newer song titles are "Black Tears" & "Guess What?" much more to come.
