Meet Philadelphia’s own HIGH LEAF, MMR’s Local Shots Artist of the Month.

This stoner rock quartet hails from Philly. HIGH LEAF is truly a force to be reckoned with. The group fuses an array of influences and musical backgrounds, making a sound that’s all their own. With years of experience and plenty of chemistry, HIGH LEAF is one of the top up-and-coming acts in their genre.

Although HIGH LEAF officially began in February 2022, members of the band have been collaborators for several years. In fact, they first met in 2013 and spearheaded two prior bands. The band has shared musical interests. For instance, they are heavily into grunge, stoner rock, and heavy blues. The band incorporates a wide range of 1970s – 1990s inspirations into their style, ranging from Tool, The Sword, and Clutch to Corrosion of Conformity and Queens of the Stone Age. Records like Black Sabbath’s Masters of Reality, Down’s Nola, Kyuss’ Welcome to Sky Valley, and Soundgarden’s Badmotorfinger and Superunknown really motivate them.

In several ways, the quartet is all set to make this their breakthrough year. They’ve got a killer look and sound firmly in place. Mix that with the tenacity and talent to do whatever it takes to become a permanent fixture in the stoner rock scene. Whether you listen to them while working out, smoking, or just chilling, undoubtedly, HIGH LEAF will take you where you need to go.
