Blue Water Highway
Roots-bound music in three-part harmony
Blue Water Highway comes from the working class, coastal town background that has informed the work of so many classic American musicians. Packing glorious, three-part vocal harmonies and tight yet inventive musicianship, the Lone Star state-based quartet, together since 2013, released two enthusiastically received albums – their 2015 debut, Things We Carry, and its 2018 follow-up, Heartbreak City – that had critics hailing them as one of the brightest hopes for modern Americana. Growing up in various Texas towns, the members took inspiration from traditional and modern country, but also from classic rock bands like Eagles, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. At the same time, both Kibodeaux and Clarke also boast degrees in opera. “When we got together, our idea was to make all of those influences fit,” says Clarke. “And that came true on especially on this album – we wanted to build a spaceship in a barn.”
