“High Stakes” is our tip of the hat to the classic organ-driven sounds of bands like Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake, & Palmer. We have found a lot of stylistic continuity between our favorite progressive rock and jazz fusion artists, so one of our primary goals as a band has been to utilize and combine these elements in to a unique, singular musical voice.

The primary musical unifier for “High Stakes” is the shuffle feel. Practically every influential artist - whether they be considered blues, jazz, rock, fusion, etc. - has a hard-hitting shuffle in their repertoire. So, “High Stakes” has naturally become a vehicle for us to really tie a lot of our favorite influences together while presenting a little something for everyone to enjoy: open-vamp guitar and organ riffing, neoclassical-rock style counterpoint and arpeggios, powerhouse drumming, and shifting harmonies and meter right out of the prog-rock playbook. “High Stakes” has quickly become a fan favorite as well as a band favorite.
