Vertical Horizon stands for a commitment to superior music. Its a concept that has always meant a steadfast striving for the artistically-creative high road. Perhaps the most significant key to Vertical Horizons success today is the freedom they have from the constraints of a major recording label. Scannell says, "Our music is coming from the purest place - there are no other considerations beyond 'Do we like this? Does it mean something to us?'" Vertical Horizon works at a tempo that fuels the creative process. Its no wonder why so many performers cite them as influences.
