Highway 61 is a Los Angeles-based blues-rock 'n' roll band whose debut album was recorded 30 years after the band broke up. And it only took a worldwide pandemic, a near-fatal bout with Leukemia, and the death of their mentor to make it happen... In summer 2022, the foursome reconvened for the first time in decades at Kitten Robot Studios in Los Angeles with producer Paul Roessler (The Screamers, 45 Grave, Nina Hagen) to make Driving South, which mixes doses of The Rolling Stones and Tom Petty with dashes of The Black Crowes and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The band ripped through the entire album over a few weeks, finally tracking fan favorites like "Baby Whered You Stay Last Night" and "Supernatural Monkey Child," alongside brand new song "Black Magic." Driving South also salutes Highway 61 mentor Alan Mirikitani, a.k.a. blues guitar master BB Chung King, who sadly passed away in 2015. "Walk on Water" and "Breath Away" feature unreleased solos Mirikitani recorded with the band in 1992. In an incredibly emotional reunion, "Walk on Water" also features Mirikitanis daughter Alana Mirikitani on backing vocals joining the two artists on an album for the first time.
