The Natural High
THE NATURAL HIGH are a three piece male vocal harmony group producing their own Pop/Soul/R&B sounds as well as covering Soul & Motown classics from the 60s, 70s, 80s and early 90s. Their live show contains many surprises and the band are a real throwback to the golden days of the vocal supergroups like The Temptations or The Drifters. This is mainly due to the fact that they spotlight not one or two, but three capable lead singers - sometimes all in the course of the same song! The main ingredients are all there - a bass/baritone voice, a tenor and a falsetto - all neatly housed in The Natural High's sound.
Whilst the group cover well known classic songs on stage, they still find that they also appeal to a younger audience. This is demonstrated via their own material which, although having its own unique style, is still very accessible. Their own songs are very well constructed and people are often heard humming or whistling a Natural High tune as they leave a venue, completely unaware of the fact that it is not a well known standard ! One thing is for sure - when you watch this group you'll be on a Natural High !!!
The group have many musical influences ranging from The Jackson 5, The Temptations, Quincy Jones, Marvin Gaye and Luther Vandross right through to some more surprising choices for a soul outfit such as Lennon/McCartney, Cole Porter and Burt Bacharach.
Mark Bryant, Micky Davis and Bradley Bryant are the current line-up of The Natural High - a group that was formed back in the Summer of 1992. Their songs were penned by the group themselves and "the invisible fourth member" Phil Owen who also plays all the instruments on the tracks and takes care of the production side. In the Summer of 1995 the group spent six months getting a great show together to perform their songs to a live audience. Having signed up with some of the South's top entertainment agencies, like the Essex Entertainment Agency, they have been performing regularly ever since at venues throughout the UK. Reviews by both national and local press have been very warm and The Natural High are going down a storm wherever they play.
MARK BRYANT is a founder member of The Natural High who holds the group together and writes most of the original material.
BRADLEY BRYANT is the youngest and newest member of The Natural High and is a very talented young singer, very much in the tradition of the group.
MICKY DAVIS is enjoying his second spell with the group and they are pleased to have him back on board. He was initially with The Natural High between 1992 and 1998, during which time his input was immense. His return is winning the group a lot of new fans.
