In an era of pop heroes and pre-packaged musical robots, Highway J ignores the fads and does what makes sense.... Good rock music that strives for meaning and creativeness.
Fronting songs like "Corporate Clown" and "Beyond This", which combine both thoughtful social commentary and memorable melodies without losing a driving edge, Highway J crafts a pleasant experience for the thoughtful listener.
Since 2003, HJ has explored its rock roots as well as delved into similar musical genres while highlighting its vocalist (Dave Combs) as he seeks to strike a chord all his own. Combs, an obvious talent, continues to evolve from his classically trained beginnings and draws comparisons to no one with his unique energy and ability to command attention. Guitars, (Ryan Knox, Ryan Bradle) share a musical relationship that tosses back and forth pieces of riff, delicate melody, and exploratory noise. The two members who form the rhythm section (Don Bruce- Bass)(Jeff Badorek- Drums) act as the expressive force that drive the band's songs into reaching their culmination. No tricks, no loops, no hidden backup singers: just a refined rawness that aims to rediscover real music- that is Highway J.
