Good times with good people.
Higher Education is a lively rock-reggae band from College Park, Maryland. The power trio has made their presence known in the DMV with several residencies at popular venues and bars in the area. Brothers, Petey and Danny Devaney with Bradley Wilson have integrated both reggae vibes and psychedelic inspirations into the electricity of rock and roll. Influences include Sublime, Nirvana, and Jimi Hendrix.
At the heart of their music, HigherEdu is two bands in one. Brothers switch between playing lead guitar, vocals, backup vocals, and bass. Bradley, inspired by Tim “Herb”Alexander and Vinny Paul, keeps the tempo tight in the pocket. HigherEdu values the power music has in bringing people together. The band hopes to create albums and perform live shows in which their fans can simply have a good time.
Their debut album “Chasing Highs” was released in 2013, recently HigherEdu released their second album, “Would You Like Fries With That?” While the former is heavily reggae based, the new album, “Would You like Fries With That?” combines all their new flavors for a heady, groovy, rock feel that is dance worthy yet heavily layered. The third album “The Ballad of Alexander Henry” is coming soon!
These guys love to challenge themselves and the new album is more vocally and melodically intricate than the previous album. Weaving in and out of genres, Higher Education reaches fans across the spectrum. This young team of talented artists has been building a repertoire of music that is ready and waiting to be released. The band is dedicated to sharing great evocative music as well as pushing themselves to look for other people who equally value creating new and original art.
“If you’re looking for a little positivity, love, and strength, then welcome to the Higher Education family. This talented group loves producing music that brings everyone together, using their unique sound to fill the room with a contagious good vibe. Higher Education’s live shows are full of high energy, and showcase the passion these boys have for their music. Inspiring vocals and powerful guitar playing lift the negativity right off your shoulders.Petey, Danny, and Bradley have each brought their own individual skills to the group, allowing them to combine multiple genres of music and create their own distinct style. These guys don’t just want to be another band, they want to create a community of loving, creative and passionate people who love life as much as they do.
One thing is for certain, you’ll never leave a Higher Education show without a smile on your face.”
