Unforgiving Prairie winters seem to have a knack for producing some of Canada’s best musical exports. Known for their rich four-part harmonies and unique take on the Americana/Rock N’ Roll genre, The Highway Company aim to continue Winnipeg’s fine tradition, both honoring the past and creating something brand new.
After several years of honing their craft, 2019 saw the band embark on a three-month Canadian/US tour in support of The Tea Party. Their single “Company” was a hit on Sirius XM’s North Americana, where it remains in rotation today. As the pandemic wore on, The Highway Company slowly built their own recording studio, and the new songs that come with it. “We were forced to reevaluate everything. Nothing in life is guaranteed, may as well be true to yourself and enjoy it,” says bassist Jesse Meyer. THC is rounded out by his brother Kyle Meyer (guitar, vocals), Jay Stanley (guitar, keys, vocals), Jay Mymryk (drums) and Ryan McConnell (vocals, guitar).
2022 is a bit of a new start for everyone and everything, so armed with a new name, new songs, and a new ethos, watch for a lot of new The Highway Company music on your favorite streaming service this year.
