Highway 50

Highway 50

HIGHWAY 50 is the brainchild of Al Laughlin, original member of the Colorado band, The Samples. Laughlin wrote or co-wrote many of the band’s most enduring songs, and his percussive offbeat reggae stylings on keyboards became known as “the bubble” that helped form the band’s signature sound.

HIGHWAY 50 honors a tradition blending ska, reggae, jazz, pop and R&B with Laughlin’s melodic vocals and introspective lyrics.

The band’s lineup includes guitarist James Hambleton, Scott Higgins, drummers Jeep MacNichol (also formally of The Samples), Brian Nevin (of Big Head Todd and the Monsters), horn players Andrew McNew, Matt Planer, Sara Mount, and bassist Chris Wright.

Their latest EP, Highway 50 - "The Violet Project" contains 6 songs and is available on Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, and CD Baby.

We’re actively composing for 2018 so be sure to stay tuned!
