Blue Water Highway
Blue Water Highway
Blue Water Highway comes from the working class, coastal town background that has informed the work of so many of rock’s greatest writers and artists. They take their name from the roadway that links their hometown of Lake Jackson, Texas to Galveston, where the cops, the teachers, the baristas and the chemical plant workers travel to work hard and to play hard, blowing off steam, dancing to their favorite bands. Blue Water Highway’s music is the soundtrack for their lives.“Best Friend” is the first single from their upcoming album Heartbreak City, coming out on Blue Water Highway Records/Thirty Tigers on June 8th. With a hook that’s a mile wide, it chronicles the lives, loves and friendships that sustain us. Blue Water Highway was started by two “best friends” from high school - Zack Kibodeaux (lead vocals, guitar) and Greg Essington (guitar). They were later joined by Catherine Clark (keyboards), Jared Wilson (drums) and Kyle James Smith (bass). They will be touring relentlessly to support Heartbreak City, so look for them in a town near you soon. www.bluewaterhighwayband.com

With over 140,000 streams on Spotify, sold out shows with Mt. Joy, Susto, Wilderado and 100+ other performances under their belt, Whitacre is a group blurring the lines of folk, indie rock and bluegrass music. Their music combines thought-provoking lyrics with 3-part vocal harmonies paired with an energetic live experience that has drawn comparison to The Oh Hellos. Playing numerous venues in Denver led the band to supporting JD McPherson in Indianapolis at the end of 2017. Since then, they have supported Birdtalker, Mt. Joy, Shane Smith & The Saints and many more. They are now in the process of releasing their debut EP 'Within The Mountains' Shadows' due October of 2018.
