A neon sign casts a dim glow on a dive motel in the seedy part of town. Lost Vegas Hiway tells the stories of the down and out, through their eyes.
We’ve booked a room here for you, so grab yourself a couple FREE tracks from the album and have a look at what our other guests have said.
“The tracklist here is evocative of a jukebox in one of said dives, ranging from moving Americana to full-throated rock and roll to foot-stompin’ honky-tonk. Best played in a motel with a weekly rate.” – Jason Bracelin, Las Vegas Review Journal
“Lost Vegas Hiway follows a handful of disparate dreamers and down-and-outers” – Richard Skanse, Lone Star Music Magazine
“Jeff Mix captures the lowdown Vegas vibe. The human condition. Universal. Life, at street level. Pure.”-Gurf Morlix
A conman in Vegas? Yep. Jeff crossed paths with one on the run from the law, who squeezed $283 out of him. “Got a tongue like the devil and a mouth full of lies.” This experience inspired Jeff to write these songs, imagining him in his motel room coming up with his scams. This turned into an album of stories of different people in different rooms. The album was recorded in Las Vegas and Austin, grammy winners, Pete Lyman (Isbell, Stapleton) mastered the album, as well as Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams) producing and playing on a track. In short, if you’re a fan of Springsteen, Isbell or Petty, and well written songs, then the debut album from Jeff Mix and The Songhearts is a must have for your collection.
The prostitute, the motel manager, the con man, the musician who’s on the road with a heartache. All these stories are written from these people’s point of view. It put’s you in their shoes for the night to see how the other half lives. These songs are full of heart and empathy
