High on Stress

High On Stress (HOS) is a Minneapolis based alt-country/indie rock band formed in 2003 by Nick Leet and Mark Devaraj. They recruited the services of Jon Tranberry, owner of OBT studio, and Ben "Country" Baker and began writing and playing. By 2007, the line-up consisted of Leet, Devaraj as well as bass player Jim Soule and guitarist Chad Wheeling. According to Peter Jesperson of New West Records, High On Stress carry on in the grand tradition of Minneapolis music - great rock 'n' roll with a rootsy slant; cheeky at times, consistently well written and played.

The band has played shows throughout the midwest primarily, either headlining their own shows or opening for acts as diverse as Jackson Browne, Jane Wiedlin, and Tommy Keene. On special occasions, High on Stress has served as backing band for ex-Replacement Slim Dunlap. After 11 years the band has parted ways amicably, choosing to call it quits while still reaching some new creative heights but before it stops being fun. The music will hopfully live on and continue to reach new audiences. Thanks for stopping by, check out some tunes here on CD Baby. We hope you enjoy them!
