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’, recorded with Chris Clarke at Reservoir Studios in London, to wide acclaim:
‘Straight away you can see why they’ve been so highly rated... Get used to seeing them a lot more too, because debut EP’s shouldn’t be this good.’ – Maximum Volume Music
‘the diversity of the four songs hints to a bright future for the band.’ Glasswerk
‘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
Appearing at festivals this Summer and over the last 12 months including AmericanaFestUK, Tonder Fest (Denmark), The British Country Music Festival, Summertyne Americana festival, Millport Country Music Festival to name a few, they are also established regulars on the London gigging circuit playing at some of the best Americana nights the city has to offer: What’s Cookin, Come Down and Meet The Folks, Country in the Afternoon and more.
