of Chelsea.

  • The HPD single VIRGINIA is “sublime”. On this song the band has “a bygone sound that is reminiscent of the true country standards of yesteryear that recall [Johnny] Cash, [George] Jones, [Carl] Perkins and [Merle] Haggard.”

    Glide Magazine
  • “ 'Santa! Bring my Girlfriend Back!' is simply tons of fun. With a fantastic musical build that reaches “big band” heights and lyrics that are hilariously infectious, this song is a must play for the Christmas season. . . . [The tune] is a musical force of nature. An obvious display of musical proficiency, this song is humorous and lighthearted while simultaneously being a very serious artistic statement. The mallet lines and horn runs are unbelievable, and the way the track builds to a heavy swing is impressive. Music lovers will find so many things to like about this track. A totally fresh-feeling holiday song, this is one for the whole family to enjoy."

  • VIRGINIA “Our Fave Songs of the Year (So Far)."

    WRIR FM
    Richmond, VA
  • HPD “radiates all the good things in this world. A perfect mix of feel-good rhythms and catchy melodies, the album showcases the members’ talent at effortlessly merging completely different genres like rock’n’roll and country and still makes you want to dance and sing at the top of your lungs.”

    Stage Right Secrets
  • HPD’s “catchy debut single titled VIRGINIA . . . [has] lyrics that paint a vivid image of nostalgia and regret that contrasts with the cheerful nature of its instrumentals, which are reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel’s glory days.”

    1st DAY FRESH
  • The single JENNIFER ANISTON “is as catchy as it is cheeky, spiked with Devo-esque synthesized panache, and you’ll soon find yourself singing along to the loving, longing chorus.”

    ELMORE MAGAZINE
  • “In these tough times of 2020 especially during the Christmas Holiday Season, folks need more than ever to smile, laugh and have fun and the musical talent of the High Plain Drifters ride into town and deliver just what is needed.”  “Their hilarious funny classic “Santa! Bring My Girlfriend Back!” is just what the doctor ordered.”  “This track is downright funny and adds a little lighthearted humor to your holidays!! Guaranteed to get you smiling and into the holiday spirit!!

  • It’s the greatest of all the dysfunctional Christmas Songs ever recorded. It’s brilliant and just makes me merry every time I play it.

    If you were to ask me is it as good as White Christmas, I wouldn't be lying if I said yes.

    Zach Martin

  • This is the song that took me away from the world and allowed me to Christmas chuckle.
