A great artist taking up the banner of the Saratoga Sound and bringing a contemporary version of it to today's generation. Saratoga has been the inspiration to many of the greats including Bob Dylan and Don McLean and has been the place to be for every major touring act today. Marcus has been compared to Eddie Vedder and Bruce Springsteen because of his heartfelt baritone vocals....but its his songs that make him stand out. They are great stories about the human condition covering everything from love and loss to the frailties of just being alive. Make no mistake when you hear Marcus you will be entertained and moved through a gritty pop based Americana sound, but your soul will be touched at the same time by his lyrics and emotion.

Rick Nelson of High Peaks

Expect the unexpected at an HPB show. Its not quite the Twilight Zone, but its close. Feel free to lose yourself in the music… You may just find the band staring at you and realize your dance is driving the jam!
HPB has shared this musical journey and stage with some amazing artists such as; Rusted Root, Melvin Seals and JGB, R.A.Q., Bernie Werrell, The McLovins, Capital Zen, Lucid, Stone Revival Band(featuring Vinnie Amico of MOE), Roots Collider, Fundimensionals, Audio In flux, Flux Capacitor, Kung Fu, The Breakfast, Formula 5 and many more.

Made up of 4 soldiers of Gsus, HPB has traveled the world listening for the magic. HPB incorporates Reggae, jazz, blues, calypso, gospel, progressive, classical, funk, jam, rock and folk into a unique blend that is called Smart-Jam. The words and the notes sometimes get lost in each other before you are taken out into big sky. Only to come crashing back down into a driving groove that will leave you “Peaking”.
With subtle words that tell tales of yesterday, haunting harmonies that tell of a future still uncertain, HPB is simply the catalyst for the music. On a whim, it takes them where it will.

Born out of the Saratoga NY 518 Pham scene, HPB weaves fragile melody with booming thunderclaps. The sounds of the storm clouds when they meet the mountain ridge, forcing terra down the slopes with its merciless push into the deep waters , is the sound of HPB in mid trance.
