The Blue Highways
Formed in early 2018, four piece Americana band The Blue Highways have quickly cemented themselves as a fixture on the Americana scene in the UK. Having built a reputation as a commanding live act driven by big vocals, close harmonies, and narrative led songs, they’ve already played some of the best Americana festivals in Europe and supported some of the biggest acts in the genre including Iris Dement at the Sage Gateshead, Robert Vincent at Country in The Afternoon, and Bennett Wilson Poole on their first UK tour.
In August 2019 they released their debut four-track EP, The Blue Highways, to wide acclaim:
‘The EP ought to be considered as good as any UK debut of its ilk since perhaps the first Grand Drive record’ - Americana UK
‘The Blue Highways have made an impressive sound in their latest EP, combining folk, country, rock and soul into a wonderfully enflamed piece of work.’ - Maverick Magazine
‘Their new EP will do nothing to dispel the belief that this is a band marked out for big things….a superb debut which perfectly showcases their talents’ Fatea
‘The Blue Highways are unfeasibly young to have created such a mature and well crafted songs; but they have and this EP is certainly well worth hunting down regardless of which side of the Atlantic you live on.’ – Rocking Magpie
