HIGH SPIRITS began in Chicago in early 2009 with a series of fun songwriting sessions and demo recordings. Soon, there were 10 songs recorded, enough for an album. It was released as a plain white label LP at the band’s first live show, which was in August of 2009. Only a handful copies sold that night, but the rest sold quickly through the mail to fans all over the world.
Since then the band has released two full-length albums, Another Night (2011) and You Are Here (2014), a compilation of demos High Spirits (2009) and a couple of singles and EP’s.
