Blue Water Highway is an Austin-based folk rock band known for their soulful three-part harmonies, thoughtful songwriting, inventive arrangements, and live performances that are just as captivating and entertaining as their albums.
The band consists of childhood friends Zack Kibodeaux and Greg Essington, alongside Catherine Clarke and Kyle James Smith. They take their name from Zack and Greg’s working class, coastal hometown, and the highway that runs from the mouth of the Brazos River to Galveston, TX.
Additionally, they’ve made three full-length albums blending modern and traditional sounds to create something timeless and familiar, yet fresh and original. Their most recent album is Paper Airplanes, produced by Cason Cooley. They are currently working on their most ambitious project to date, a self-produced album entitled, Year of the Dragon, due in 2023.
