In their debut album, Things We Carry, Blue Water Highway Band fuses complex harmonies with operatic elegance. Through songs that span broad landscapes, sonically and narratively, songwriters Zack Kibodeaux and Greg Essington carry on the great American tradition of giving voice to the struggles and triumphs of the people they love.
