Ep 13 - Song 2: "The Thing About the Devil" by The High Crest

"The High Crest is the Folk & Roll duo of Kat Darling and Aaron Short. They are living small and traveling big, taking their sustainable Iowa grown original music across this country. They have released two albums, sold their house, and have now downsized to travel and perform their music. Their music is a strong blend of dueling guitars, harmonies and songwriting infused with harmonica, resonator guitar, and driving djembe hand drum. The songs lead into shared storytelling and invite humor, reflection and camaraderie. With hard-earned maturity and wisdom their songs ring true and will find a way into you."

"Aaron and Kat write and perform on acoustic guitars but often switch gears to include Aaron’s slide guitar and Kat’s djembe drumming on their album and at their shows. They thrive in an acoustic setting and can transform into a full band. Not fitting into the traditional genres, they dubbed their music, Folk and Roll.

"The couple was married in 2007 and recorded an EP, Fire. In 2008 their daughter, Abileen was born and in 2010 they recorded a family EP, Simple Songs Simple Feelings. They formed their partnership, 5 of Hearts Productions, in 2012 to support current projects which include, The High Crest self-titled debut album, Aaron’s solo album, Strange and a full album of their family songs, Simple Songs Simple Feelings. The High Crest performs an average of 100+ shows per year at top events and venues in the Des Moines and surrounding Midwest area. They have also been recorded live on Des Moines’ radio station, KFMG 99.1 and continue to have their songs played regularly.

"Aaron and Kat will be taking their music further into the Midwest area and also have plans of touring to Colorado and the West Coast. Armed with their new album, family and passion, The High Crest is dedicated to making music and sharing it with you."
