The Mighty High and Dry

MHD paints life’s adventure as an ever-unfolding mirror
Which hangs over altar with full bar

 The Mighty High & Dry pump out big-hearted American Rock ‘n Soul, employing a healer’s touch and a lover’s kiss to the other cheek.  Since 2011, singer Alan Murphy has been channeling his writing efforts into MHD along with bassist Kyle Vock.  With two original members relocating in ’16, they’ve added guitarist Eric Katerle and drummer Alex Coté, who both triple their duties by writing and singing with the band.  

The Mighty High & Dry perform largely in their hometown, Rochester, NY, and occasionally burrow through the earth to make their way to stages in New England and the Great Lakes region.  Since the spring of 2017, they have expanded their band’s size for some shows, adding horns, keys and female vocals, dubbing the outfit The Mighty High & Dry Assembly.  MHD has released two full-length CDs, the 1st  (‘13) self-titled and the latest one (’16) titled The Next Waltz, indicating a nod to The Band’s big dance.  They released a single and a video for their song “I Was Living Here” in February 2018 and included the song in their August ’18 EP release, American Record.
