Blue Water Highway

Blue Water Highway is an Austin-based Americana/folk rock band known for their soulful harmony singing, thoughtful songwriting, and entertaining live performances. Hailed by The Austin-American Statesman as “one of Austin’s best Americana acts,” with “legitimate national potential,” they have been compared to artists such as Counting Crows, Bruce Springsteen, The Band, and The Eagles. They have over a decade of national and international touring experience—from headlining shows to tours with Bob Seger, Reckless Kelly, Shane Smith and the Saints, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Johnny Lang, and Turnpike Troubadours. Their third album, Paper Airplanes, was produced by Cason Cooley (NEEDTOBREATHE, Drew Holcomb, David Ramirez) and they are now excited to present their most ambitious project to date—a self-produced fourth album entitled, Year of the Dragon. Musically and lyrically in the Southern Gothic vein, it melds the world of fast cars, rock and roll, chain gangs, cops, and Delta Blues with that of knights, queens, dragons, and troubadours, revealing a grittier side of the band, while still preserving the beauty, hope and soulful energy that has become their signature.
