The band members have a wide taste in music and they love combining several music styles in their songs. All members take part in the songwriting process, often by endless jam sessions that later become potential songs.

In 1997 the band released the E.P. “Keep on Walkin´”on ProActive Records in the UK, which received considerable critical acclaim. The band started working on their debut album in 1998, shoot a music video for “Ghost in My head” in London at the end of 1999, as the album “Perfect Chaos” was finally released in May 2000. In 2004 the album “A Thousand Pieces” was released on the German label “AOR Heaven” and in 2009 the album “13 tracks” were released on their own label “Speechless Music Productions” that consisted of a number of songs from their previous albums (remixed and reproduced), as well as two new songs.

During 2012 a single called "Missing You" were released. The sound of HIGHER GROUND is like a great ‘mixtape’. Blending rock with pop melodiousness, a bit of soul with classic rock dynamics and modern melodic rock with a touch of West Coast/AOR pop from the eighties. The band has all the ingredients that you would expect from a Swedish rock band, melodic hooks with a melancholic touch – just good music, timeless and for everyone ! 2) HIGHER GROUND was formed in 1998 by West Country singer-songwriter, Uno Annalon. Uno combines brilliant songwriting skills with a unique style of music, inspiration and an air of magic and mystery. Together with the other band members they created a distinctive and powerful sound.

Inspired by the legends and myths of King Arthur and his Knights of The Round Table, their debut album Torr Stories gained an enthusiastic following. Critics have favourably compared Higher Ground to the Moody Blues.

While the band plays a variety of bluegrass oriented tunes, they expand their musical taste beyond the scope of traditional, hard driving songs, to include original and contemporary selections. Their philosophy remains one of developing interesting arrangements of lesser known songs, and adding something new and unique to standard bluegrass tunes. As well, Higher Ground performs a selection of original material penned by members of the group.

The band took first place at the Santa Fe Bluegrass festival in 1996 and again in 1998. A few personnel changes have ensued over the past four years, with three members recently joining the group. In October of 1999, Dave Devlin, on mandolin, and Diane Lujan, on lead and harmony vocals, joined Higher Ground. The newest member is Fred Bolton, from White Rock, who joined the group in December of 1999, bringing a solid guitar, lead and harmony vocals.

The resultant combination is an eclectic blend of truly accomplished musicians who enjoy watching all the pieces of a tune fall naturally into place. Each member brings new ideas to old standard tunes, as well as thoughts on how to put the most into original or contemporary selections. From diverse backgrounds, Higher Ground performs an interesting array of traditional, original and contemporary bluegrass tunes. With four members providing vocal contributions, the swapping of lead and harmonies offers something new and appealing for each song in their repertoire.
