High Road Easy

Country Germany

Style Melodic Rock/Hard Rock

Profile Teaming up in March 2008, Jan and Sven were instantly hitting off with each other. Within three weeks six great melodic rock gems were written and demoed. HIGH ROAD EASY were born. “It’s fun, says Sven, “to write the words that compliment his singing. And I do really love his voice. I always did.” These demo tracks reflected their melodic rock influences. But most of all they present Jan at his best – with his strong, clear, emotionally rich singing that surely will be a surprise to many.

Jan profits from years singing in his cover band Juke Box Heroes. Foreigner, Journey, Toto, Rainbow, Bad English, Deep Purple are classic rock highlights that are the core of his musical taste.

Enter Sven Horlemann, busy guitar wizard, bass player, songwriter, producer and mixer for various outfits, most notably the three Ocean Bed releases. Being aware of the extraordinary talent of Jan – both live in Karlsruhe, Germany, and are part of the local music scene for ages – he always had in mind to team up with Jan to write some songs.

“We started the song writing session with talking about our favourite songs, and listen to them, Sven remembers. “It was a great way to tune into each other. I prepared several songs ideas, but they didn’t work very well. Fortunately, I found a way to give Jan some basic layouts for him to improvise melodies. From that point on the record wrote itself easily.”

“It seemed to me”, Sven said, “that it was never meant to be. I mean, I always wanted to join forces with Jan, but life had other plans. Until now.”
