Mic Harrison and The Highscore
Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Mic Harrison, lead guitarist Robbie Trosper, bassist Vance Hillard, guitarist Kevin Abernathy and drummer Don Coffey, Jr., have a chemistry that can only come from long term friendships and shared experiences.
I’d rather see Mic Harrison and the High Score perform than just about any band on the planet.......Every time I go to a Mic Harrison and the High Score show, I know I’m going to walk in and see guys who look like they’re having so much fun on stage that it can’t help but spill out into the audience...........Harrison, who started his young adulthood working in a saw mill in Bradford, Tenn., a town so small it barely shows up on the map between Memphis and Jackson. He moved to Knoxville in the 1990s to become co-lead singer-songwriter (with Scott Miller) in The V-Roys, a band that defined “Americana” before it was genre. After that group split, he teamed with Trosper in the short-lived favorites The Faults and, later, teamed with Coffey in the now legendary power pop act Superdrag. When Superdrag ended, Harrison enlisted established Knoxville rock act The High Score to back up a tour and the chemistry was so good that the partnership never ended.
