High Up singer Christine Fink moved to Omaha to be closer to her sister, singer songwriter Orenda Fink (Azure Ray, etc.) back in 2012. Down South in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Christine was known to perform at the local karaoke bars. The first time Orenda saw Christine sing at Sheffield’s Old Town Tavern, she was completely taken by her sister’s talent. After a few years in Omaha, Orenda noticed that Christine received praise from people of all ages everywhere she sang karaoke.
But Christine was feeling lost, shuffling between minimum wage jobs, and the thrill of the weekend performances wore off quickly. One night, the two began to talk about the future, and Orenda insisted that Christine should try and perform for people for a living. After much discussion, they decided to start High Up, a collaboration mixing elements of punk and soul that showcased Christine’s powerful vocals and Orenda’s seasoned songwriting, drawing from a wide variety of influences- from Janis Joplin and Sam Cooke to Dead Kennedys, from Screaming Jay Hawkins to Velvet Underground.
