Bio

Musically, GH5 draws heavily from the early 2000 pop-punk sound to create fun, high-energy southern punk that appeals to an audience of their peers. The band also infuses the newer pop-punk sound along with a pinch of metal to create a dynamic wave that rides catchy melodies and soaring harmonies right into the stylish breakdowns that contain a hint of metal influence. When playing live shows, the band is extremely energetic and likes to perform call-and-response type antics if the audience is willing. If not, you'll see five guys passionately thrashing around the stage (minus the drummer, of course) to the music they love having the best time of their lives. The thing that sets GH5 apart from other bands like them is their perseverance and their uncanny ability to work through adversity. This band is not easily stopped by anything or anyone that opposes it and will continue to press on in a brilliant display of determination and persistence.

Specific musical influences include but are not limited to:
Blink 182, The Almost, Forever The Sickest Kids, Underoath, All Time Low, Angels & Airwaves, New Found Glory, Fall Out Boy, We The Kings, Mayday Parade, Hit The Lights, Sum 41 and Green Day.

Goodhigh5 was co-founded by members Tyler Harris and Brandon Culpepper in August 2008. Both had been in several projects prior to starting Goodhigh5- including a metal band in which they both played- but decided to make a fresh start by forming a pop-punk band like the ones they had grown up listening to. In the new project, Ty would be playing guitar and singing lead vocals and Brandon would be playing drums and singing back-up. Within the first days of GH5's existence, Bradford Conrado joined up as the bass player and the three-piece played its first local show a few weeks later. The band continued writing and playing shows as a three-piece for about two and a half months until they attracted interest from Buddy Prow- the former drummer for local band Typewriter Poet. Since Culpepper was nothing short of an incredible drummer (probably one of the very best ever), Buddy joined GH5 as the new bassist and Bradford was moved to rhythm guitarist. A few weeks after Buddy joined GH5, they also began to attract the interest of one Brett Callan. Brett was the former guitarist/back-up vocalist for Typewriter Poet. It seemed that he and Prow had recently hit a rough patch with their former band and were seeking new opportunity. Toward the end of November, Callan officially joined GH5 as the frontman/lead vocalist- rounding off a terrific line-up. In December 2008, GH5 decided to make a trip into a local recording studio to make a five-track demo EP for marketing and promoting purposes. After finishing the recording in January in a new up-and-coming studio called Foul-Core Productions (run by Brandon Frisby), the band posted their first single, "Let It Go", on their MySpace. Other tracks from the self-entitled EP, "Fiesta Song" and "Feeling of Fall" were soon to follow.
