High Valley announces new EP
Monday, April 20, 2020
– High Valley will be back with a new EP, "Grew Up On That," on May 22 through Warner.
The six-song project of brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel tells of childhood, family and love.
High Valley is previewing the EP with the release of new song "River's Still Running." Brad wrote the song with Randy Montana and Corey Crowder.
"When we wrote this song, we had no idea about the predicament we'd be in right now," Brad said. "But it's pretty true that if you can look outside and see the sun still shining, see the river still running... then you know it's going to be ok. We just have to focus on little pieces of positivity every single day."
"Your Mama" was written by Ben West, Josh Miller, Troy Verges and Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard as a message from parent to child. The song pays tribute to the duo's better halves. The official video, which stars the brothers as well as their wives and children, was directed by Emma Higgins and shot at Brad's home outside of Nashville.
High Valley offer bluegrass-infused country music. Their 2016 debut album, "Dear Life," produced "Make You Mine" and Top 10 radio hit "She's With Me," both of which have been certified Gold.
The track list is:
1. Grew Up On That (Brad Rempel, Ben Stennis, Jaron Boyer)
2. Your Mama (Ben West, Tyler Hubbard, Josh Miller, Troy Verges)
3. River's Still Running (Brad Rempel, Randy Montana, Corey Crowder)
4. Northern Star (Brad Rempel, Matt Rogers, Ben Stennis)
5. One Day You'll Get It (Brad Rempel, Derrick Southerland, Ben West)
6. Show Me The Way (featuring Jillian Edwards) (Brad Rempel, Daniel Tashian, Tenille Nadkrynechny)

CD reviews for High Valley
There's a scene in the movie "Bull Durham" where Kevin Costner tells Tim Robbins how holding the record for most home runs in the minor leagues is kind of a dubious honor - it shows a lot of years that you didn't make it to the majors. Is that what being the biggest country band in Canada is like? High Valley, who've scored an impressive run of Great White North charting singles and awards, would disagree - Shania's a Canuck ,of course. And everybody's from somewhere. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
