Residing in College Park, Maryland, the power trio Higher Education is an eclectic rock band known for their high-energy live performances, with a reputation of weaving in and out of various genres while still keeping their own distinguished sound. Their range of musicianship and songwriting abilities are impressive to say the least. You can’t help but have a good time with Higher Education. Their vibe is contagious.
Higher Education’s music is for the people. It’s real; it’s not superficial or materialistic. All three members are highly involved in the writing process, bringing multiple perspectives to the music making the songs relatable to a wide audience. They also thrive on the live performance; an area where they truly shine. The chemistry that they have live is something special, and they are capable of playing for hours on end. You can tell they are having a great time up there on stage. “Our goal is for everyone to enjoy themselves, to have fun, and to be able to escape for awhile with our music.”
They regularly play around the DC Metro area, at notable venues such as The Fillmore in Silver Spring and U Street Music Hall, as well as Rams Head Live in Baltimore. They have shared the stage with local and national acts including The Flobots, Mike Pinto, Three Legged Fox, Bumpin Uglies, Shrub and many more.
