    Formed in 2010 Ashland HIGH is Trace Cyrus' new band. Yes, Miley's older brother and Billy Ray Cyrus's son. He's one of those Cyruses and he's rocking again.

    Formerly of pop rock band Metro Station, Trace has taken his musical experience and put everything he knows into Ashland HIGH. Consisting of pop, dubstep, r&b and rock, this project put Trace behind all aspects of the production where he wrote the lyrics and sings all the vocals.

    Wanting to give back to his fans for the support they have shown him through the years, Trace decided he wanted to give his entire album away for free download, which he did on New Year's Eve. Already seeing over 30k downloads in 48 hours he knows it was the right decision. Simultaneously while giving away the album, he launched the video for the first single "Jealous Lover" which was shot in various locations around Venice Beach and can be seen here.

    Trace has been recording songs as Ashland High for the past 2 years all around California, Canada, Nashville, Venice beach and has now made over 100 songs. All the songs from "Geronimo" were recorded at the end of Nov 2011 within 9 days at Trace's home studio and were edited and put online 1 month later on New Year's Eve. Leading off with the first single called "Jealous Lover" the song is about a couple that misses out on true love. It is about how "it is so easy to always fight and be jealous when you should just be happy and in love," says Cyrus.

    Continuing to stay in touch with his fans while he worked on this new album, Trace has been busy working on his clothing line "Southern Made Hollywood Paid" since 2009 which features t-shirts, jackets, sunglasses, hats and more.

    It was important for him to have a creative outlet and he has always been passionate about fashion. Trace's love for art is one reason his entire body is covered in tattoos. "I have always had a love for fashion and the opportunity presented itself to have a clothing company of my own and I really wanted the name of it to represent me. That is why I decided on Southern Made Hollywood Paid. I feel it tells a lot about my life, my story, and me. I love any way to express myself and that's why I started SMHP," says Trace.

    1. Jealous Lover
