Happy Hour Music- Route 358
Route 358 began as a jam session at the kitchen table that sounded anything but musical. Then a trip to the studio to record a live performance video of the song “Alone Tonight” started the four-piece Americana/Roots artists on their current trajectory.
358's sound can be described as having one foot in bluegrass and the other in a swampy mixture of pop, country, folk and rock.Their songs tell tales of love, love-lost, ghosts, prohibition speakeasies and the roads they travel together.
“Only The River Knows,” the bands first album, was praised for its “distinctively vintage sound, combined with beautifully honest songwriting and emotional performances” (Rebecca Cullen, Stereo Stickman).
Songs from the album earned the band a nomination for “Americana/Roots Artist of the Year” by the Arkansas Country Music Awards as well as a selection as a showcase artist for Folk Alliance Mid-West and The John Hartford Memorial Festivals.
For the past two years the band has toured playing venues and festivals in Arkansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Indiana, Missouri and Texas. In late 2018 they released their second album “Lantern’s Light”.
