Blue Water Highway

Your favorite band named after a highway, Blue Water Highway, is an indie, alternative, and Americana band from Austin, TX. See them perform here in Lewisville, only minutes from your home!

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 in 2015 and 2018 that had critics hailing them as one of the brightest hopes for modern Americana. Their latest album, Paper Airplanes, was released in March 2021. Beautiful melodies and arrangements support lyrical themes of childhood wonder and re-enchantment on recent singles “All Will Be Well” and “Dog Days.” 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 play hard, blowing off steam, dancing to their favorite bands. Blue Water Highway’s music is the soundtrack to their lives.
