Press Kit Bio
Based out of Dallas, Texas, Highway 31’s music combines a unique array of influences from the genres of Rock, Pop, Indie and Country-Rock. They are known for their catchy melodies, soulful lead vocals, rich vocal harmonies and driving guitars, bass and drums. They’ve been working with renowned Los Angeles based recording engineer and producer, Florian Ammon, who has worked with artists including Lifehouse, Kiefer Sutherland, U2, Van Halen and Rammstein to name a few.
“Highway 31 is a group of guys who work very hard on their music and lyrics, have meticulously studied the classics and apply that knowledge artfully to their version of rock in a very distinct, Texas-flavored way. I love working with them, as they are very open to suggestions but at the same time have a keen idea and vision of where to take their music.”

(Lifehouse, U2, Jude Cole, Van Halen, Rammstien, Lenard Cohen, Kiefer Sutherland)
“I’m lucky enough to have worked with Highway 31 on their last couple releases. I’ve seen them evolve as songwriters and musicians and their new record, “So Hard to Say”, is the product of that growth. Catchy, taught pop-rock tunes with thoughtful arrangements performed with skill and emotion. And no modern studio trickery here … this band can play! My favorite is “Light Come Down,” but its solid record top to bottom.”
Matt Aslanian – Producer/Recording & Mix Engineer (Green River Ordinance, Ryan Tedder, Stoney LaRue, Breaking Southwest)
