The Highway (www.thehighway.BIZ) is an original band that performs and writes with intense passion.
Their meaningful lyrics touch on a variety of topics, leaving no song the same as another. Many songs reflect on self-discovery such as cheerful Sunday Driving and shadowy Candle. Their songs also bring to light the need for discovery of the world and universe and existential questions with songs like Arabian and dreamy Secrets of the Stars. Political commentary is littered through the tracks as well; Make Waves and Shine are great examples, with the latter also containing a strong "world peace" message. Love songs and storytelling build on their creative skills with Let It Rain and Sir James. It seems no matter what the subject, The Highway says it with originality!
Their music, because of its many varieties, draws fans of all ages and genres.
The band has performed in Indiana at The University of Indianapolis, The Gear, The Attic, Logos, The Roof Top, and the Johnson County Fair. The Highway also has performed for free to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Alternatives, Inc. This band consists of a great group of young men who want to make a difference using their talents.
