Blue Water Highway

Lake Jackson, TX
Blue Water Highway comes from the working class, coastal town background that has informed the work of so many classic American musicians. They take their name from the roadway that links their hometown of Lake Jackson, Texas to Galveston, where the cops, the teachers, 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.
Their new album, Paper Airplanes, was released in spring of 2021. Beautiful melodies and arrangements support lyrical themes of childhood wonder and re-enchantment on recent singles “All Will Be Well,” and “Dog Days.”
Lead singer Zack Kibodeaux is no stranger the Kerrville Folk Festival, as he was a Kerrville New Folk Finalist in 2013. Welcome Home!
