Today we are joined by Texan musical group Blue Water Highway.
We talk about the origins of the band and the difficulties they’ve faced getting to the successful point they’re now at.
I love their music. The way they work together and harmonise their voices just sounds amazing.
After talking about how they make their music and who does what, we move on to food.
They tell me how their ‘on the road diet’ shifted from Wendy’s and Subways to more local, healthier dishes.
We also talk about how the coronavirus has affected them as artists, and how they think it will shape the music industry in the future.
”It’s so weird, people expect musicians to also be models. That’s not a skill set you get imparted with.” – Catherine Clarke
