Although Tumbleweed Highway has a calendar filled with great Music Festivals and top venues, things weren’t always this good. It took years for the Tumbleweed Highway vibe to form in to what you hear today.
The Bands Latest release “Where do we go from here?” recorded and released independently by the band, has been selling extremely well on the road. This Grassroots work ethic has been paying off for this Catskill Mountain based band. Putting Thousands of Miles on the van each year, TW HWY continues to win over new audiences every night.
“It’s about getting our music in to everyone’s hand that we can, and independently, being on the road is the only way to do It.” says Lead Singer/Guitarist Nate Gross.
Although TW HWY has a strong Country audience, live shows are known to bring out a slightly different audience. As diverse as a Willie Nelson show, a Tumbleweed Highway experience is one that includes Cowboys, Hippies and Folkies. Their shows are known for extended Jams, Zydeco Grooves, Soulful Ballads and Upbeat Honky Tonk Tunes.
Because of this diverse form of music, which holds no boundaries, TW HWY has been seen at a variety of Festivals and Shows.
"Tumbleweed Highway is a great regional band that has everything you are looking for in a performance-good songs played by good musicians with a good attitude. They are easy to work with and audiences love them" says Eric Larsen, Chenango Blues Society President/Founder.
From Blues & Roots festivals to Straight up Bluegrass & Acoustic Festivals, it shouldn’t surprise you to see some form of TW HWY there. Nor should it surprise you that they have shared the stage with such Legends as Levon Helm, Arlo Guthrie, Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale, Garth Hudson, Donna the Buffalo, and the Marshall Tucker Band.
“We have been extremely grateful that the fans have accepted our diverse and eclectic sound. In the past, bands that wear multiple influences on their sleeves, do well with the critics but confuse the audience.” says Gross.
So as the Title track of their debut Album asks, “Where do we go from here?” It really is unknown just how far this band will go, but if the crowd response continues to increase the way it has, we will see great things from this musical collaboration.
