Jeff Mix and The Songhearts / Press

“To up the ante, Jeff Mix created a film that complements the songs on Lost Vegas Hiway, his debut album with lots of firsts”

"an ambitious companion piece to his debut album of the same name, the hour-long independent film Lost Vegas Hiway follows a handful of disparate dreamers and down-and-outers"

“Jeff Mix has written a film that mirrors his tunes: gritty, homespun, world-weary in places yet ultimately defined by a hard-fought resolve. The rootsy singer-songwriter’s flick, “Lost Vegas Hiway,” which is set at the Gateway Hotel and was mostly shot in Vegas, is a Robert Altman-esque, intertwined narrative of various characters lives intersecting.”

“Jeff Mix & The Songhearts took the tempo down with some Zepplin-esque long notes before kicking it up with their Vegas-reference heavy material, which includes tracks like “Fremont Street.” This testimony to the group’s local roots is the only thing that screams “native,” though, as their sound is very honky-tonk meets smooth American rock, an analog heart that burns through our Sin City neon and EDM.”

“To say it was well received would be a huge understatement. The audience loved every delicious minute of it.”

““Imagine if Beyoncé’s Lemonade took place at a dive motel in Vegas but with rootsy Americana tunes.” Who’s not on board after a teaser like that?”

“Jeff talks about longing, hope for the future and not taking those important to you for granted in “Girls Got Gold”.”
