Listen to what others are saying about Jeff Mix and The Songhearts debut album!
“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” – Richard Skanse, Lone Star Music Magazine
“Jeff Mix has written a film that mirrors his tunes: gritty, homespun, world-weary in places yet ultimately defined by a hard-fought resolve.” – Jason Bracelin, Las Vegas Review Journal
It’s got everything… Sex, drugs, rockin’ Americana, and murder. This is an ambitious (and intriguing) independent film. It tells the stories about a collection of characters – some sleazy, some endearing – that are connected by a common thread… a dirty old motel in the shady part of LasVegas. – 5 Stars Amazon User Review
Lost Vegas Hiway explores the wide shared human afflictions of grief, love, and a desperate need to connect. Jeff Mix leads as we peer into the interesting and ever diverse lives of the guests of the Gateway Motel, a sordid and all but forgotten inn in Las Vegas, Nevada. A few unexpected twists will hold you captivated. With music that stays with you long after the credits roll, Jeff Mix brings the original tunes of Jeff Mix and the Songhearts to life with one brilliantly scored film. – 5 Stars Amazon User Review
This is the debut album & movie by Las Vegas artist and first time film maker Jeff Mix. Lost Vegas Hiway is an hour long concept film and album that features national artists Hal Ketchum, Gurf Morlix, Jack Ingram and Robyn Ludwick along with Jeff Mix playing a fictionalized character of himself. It was inspired by a real life run in Jeff Mix, a real estate agent by day, had with a conman client looking at 2 million homes. Turned the experience into a story of shady characters spending one night at the Gateway Motel in Las Vegas.
Mix describes his music as an Americana, rootsy rock and roll with a Tom Petty slant, steel guitar, viola solos, sweet duet on Promise Ring with Jeff’s wife Lee Ann. So if you’re a fan of Mellancamp, Springsteen or Petty, along with the country side of rock and roll, well written songs, then Jeff Mix and The Songhearts is a must have for your collection or your next road trip across the desert.

“Sounds Like: An East Nashville salute to the glory days of California country-rock, shot through with Seventies swoon and swagger
For Fans of: Bobbie Gentry’s string arrangements, Stevie Nicks’ vibrato, Erin Rae’s crooning calm” Rolling Stone
“Tender and wistful in places, defiant and blaring in others, the record sees Johnson fully excavating his Americana roots. There are several acoustic-based tunes, some sweet sounding, some sad-eyed, enhanced with fiddle and pedal steel, instruments that heighten the longing that saturates Johnson’s voice.” JASON BRACELIN LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
