Dance rock outfit The Heights are guitarist Scott Malcolmson, drummer Eli Matas, and bassist Sam Little—high school friends and Winnipeg music scene veterans who have been performing together for over a decade. After years of soul searching, trial-and-error, and fizzled-out projects, these old friends have finally settled into a project that combines their shared love of pop with a deep appreciation for sophisticated soul and R&B. In 2007, Malcolmson, Matas, and Little began a four-year residency at the now-defunct Winnipeg watering hole Red Cactus, playing a broad spectrum of covers to a packed house every Friday night. Brought together for a few last minute gigs, the trio rekindled the chemistry from their early cover band days. With a newly refined sound distilled from ten years spent in the jam spaces, clubs, theatres, The Heights are poised to break new ground on the Canadian music landscape with a sound that is uniquely their own. Their live show is primed to get people on the floor, dancing the night away in a way that only they can.
