The High Strung is an American band from Detroit, Michigan, United States. The band is composed of lead singer and guitarist Josh Malerman, bassist Chad Stocker, and drummer Derek Berk. Malerman and Berk attended Michigan State University in the late 1990s before moving to New York City. The band formed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, when the members of the former East Lansing, Michigan, band The Masons changed their name and added Stocker to the roster. Detroit guitarist Stephen Palmer joined the group shortly after the recording of Dragon Dicks in early 2010.
These are Good Times, Moxie Bravo, Get the Guests and ¿Posible o’ Imposible? were produced in Detroit by producer/engineer Jim Diamond.
