Gentle yet edgy, Hi-Strung has proven in a short time that they can rock the mountains of Colorado in haunting unison. Samantha Donen, aka "Doom," came from the Canadian provinces with a rhythm in her head and a song in her heart. Her deep voice carried South and enticed Maia Fortis to bring to life the sound that became their band, Hi-Strung. While Samantha belts heartbreaking lyrics and plays bass, Maia accompanies on violin and angelic vocal harmonies. The sirens wooed the romantic sentiments of Danielle Wells on cello, the thunderous drums of Shane Hartman, and the soul-bending guitar of Brian Fausett to complete their soundscape.
