This is a story of 5 guys from the Jacksonville, Florida area that grew up playing music together. They built their sound around organic songs, gritty guitar tones, brotherly harmony and a high energy live show like none other. Sounds familiar, right?
Like Lynyrd Skynyrd did almost 50 years ago, Lonely Highway has made a name for itself in Southern Georgia/Northern Florida, and are gearing up to make the move from Baker County, Florida onto the national scene via Nashville, TN. Tyler, Trey and Tanner Orberg grew up singing in the choir at the Calvary Baptist Church. The brothers have been harmonizing since they could talk. Tyler handles all the lead vocals while his older brother Trey lays down the Bass and the perfect upper third harmonies while their younger brother, Tanner, rounds out the girth with a baritone bottom end. The intricate guitar work from Bruce Sapp and Daulton McKelvey is a musical cocktail that can only be developed after countless hours of mixology.
Lonely Highway’s lyrics are the truest depiction of their lives and loves growing up in North Florida. These are songs that tell you who they are and what they’re all about. From the crowd favorite “Bad Boy” and the anthemic “Barn Burner” & “Living In The USA”, to the blistering harmony hooks of “I Wanna Get High”, the craftsmanship of the songs and the relatability of the lyrics never fails to create real impact amongst the industry and the fans.
If you’re familiar with the effect that Hamburg, Germany had on the Beatles, you’ll appreciate the daily grind Lonely Highway has endured in Nashville’s famous Broadway honky tonks like Tootsie’s, Kid Rock’s, and Honky Tonk Central. They’ve honed their live skills while simultaneously completing their debut effort, [Living In The USA] which is set to be released in 2020.
They say “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and Lonely Highway has proven this to be true beyond a reasonable doubt by consistently selling out their homecoming shows which has tripled their live performance fees in the Jacksonville, FL market over the last year.
