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 (vocals/guitar). Zack then turned to Catherine Clarke (vocals/keyboard) to complete the three - part harmonies the band would soon be known for. They were then joined by Kyle Smith (Bass) and Jared Wilson (drums).
F.U.X, but you can call us FUX, was started by a lonely heartbroken Sultan after years of freelance playing around the east coast. Blending their love for Phish, um, TAUK, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and many classic rock bands, Sultan set out to find his brothers (Reade Alexander, Zach Sloan, and Luke Klaer) and thus in an erotic crossfire hurricane FUX was born. FUX decided it was time to take their knowledge and mend it with their soul to work towards getting the masses dancing, laid, and spreading love. After receiving knowledge from idols Jacob Alan Cinninger, Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey’s McGee) and Gabriel Marin (Consider the Source) they were ready to finally show the world what was brewing in their mind and make music that makes sense. FUX combines their goofy and laid back personalities on and off stage to help spread cheerfulness and positivity to the world. Don't let their silly attitudes fool you, these boys show up to play. With the deep transcendental rhythmic varieties from Luke, the bass love bombs from Zach, smooth melodic phrases from Reade, and sporadic ignition from Sultan, FUX will keep you dancing all night long.
Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Angie Aparo built up a devoted cadre of fans in the Southeast thanks to frequent, committed performances. Following his initial independent release, Aparo hooked up with producer Matt Serletic in 1998 and began to craft the material that would become his debut album. The American was released in early 2000 and featured a full, contemporary, adult alternative-style production missing from his previous, largely solo acoustic work.
