Story behind your band/artist name: The Who wrestled with several different names before they became The Who. One of the names on their early bills was the HighNumbers. They didn't end up choosing it, obviously, so we decided to spin off of it for our name!
Band Members: Ginny Hill (Vocals), David Rothman (Guitar), Daniel Rothman (Guitar), Matt Febles (Bass), Mitch Bass (Drums)
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : NW DC
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: Higher Numbers recently wrote a song called "We'll Be Free" inspired by the band's mutual friends who gave up their place in DC to drive around the country busking and camping and living free.
The recently released song, "I Know Your Name" is inspired by the perils of online dating where a guy lied to Ginny about his name. Shame on him!
The two guitarists in Higher Numbers are brothers, David and Daniel Rothman. This makes songwriting smooth because their styles are different but quite complimentary... dare I say "brotherly."
