Jeff Mix and The Songhearts
“A Guy Clark-revering troubadour with just the right mix of melodic heart, rock ’n’ roll punch, and scrappy wherewithal to knock out one of the best Americana albums of the last year.” - Richard Skanse, Lone Star Music Magazine, March 2018
Jeff Mix and The Songhearts are a five piece Americana band from Las Vegas, NV. They conjure up the vibe of Tom Petty, Mellancamp and the country side of rock. Intelligently written songs where the lyrics are at the forefront.
Jeff Mix and The Songhearts have performed at Americana Fest (Nashville), SXSW (Austin), Life Is Beautiful (Vegas), and a sold out show during Neon Reverb Music Festival (Vegas), with the premiere of their debut album/movie Lost Vegas Hiway.
Jeff Mix is a late bloomer when it comes to music, but he hasn't pulled any punches with his debut album at 46. Lost Vegas Hiway is a concept album that's based around different guests of a dive motel in Vegas. Lost Vegas Hiway also includes a 1 hour feature film that Mix wrote, stars in and edited himself. The film has Hal Ketchum, Jack Ingram and the legendary producer, Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams, Ray Wylie Hubbard). Gurf also produced a tune on the album and the rest of the album was mixed by Dave Cobb's assistant, Eddie Spear (Jason Isbell, Stapleton). The film is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Lost Vegas Hiway tracks have received airplay around the county. The film was nominated for an Independent Film Award in NYC spring 2018.
"What results from the film and the album collectively is one of 2017’s year’s best work by this new rising, country-Americana artist.” - Terry Roland, No Depression Magazine January 2018
“...the music remains warm and accessible — shimmery country rock of the most inviting variety.” - Lee Zimmerman, Gigwise U.K. December 2017
“It’s hard to believe this is Mix’s debut album. It is that good. One of the top albums of 2017.” - Turnstyled Junkpiled
“The tracklist here is evocative of a jukebox in one of said dives, ranging from moving Americana to full-throated rock and roll to foot-stompin’ honky-tonk.” - Jason Bracelin, Las Vegas Review Journal August 2017
