Hello Highway is the Southern California piano rock project of Daniel Sumstine. Through his sincere lyrics and piano driven melodies, Daniel aims for a passionate pop/rock sound.
His new EP "Timeless" was produced in Atlanta, Georgia by Kenneth Mount and Zack Odom (All Time Low, The Ready Set, Mayday Parade) The EP debuted at #130 on the iTunes Alternative charts and has been gathering worldwide
attention ever since.
The single off the album titled "Hope in Tomorrow" was written with one thing in mind; to inspire Hello Highway's fan base, and all people, to never give up. He aims to uplift and inspire through his music.
"When people listen to my songs, I want them to feel hope. I want them to feel like they should never give up doing what truly makes them happy," said Sumstine. "For me, that's music."
Hello Highway has found success in an entirely independent way. From following major pop rock tours and selling his EP in line, to booking house shows as a source of touring, Hello Highway has already developed a loyal following. The Hello Highway family, as he calls it, is growing with every city he travels to. This work ethic and drive recently landed him a tour with fellow pop rock act Paradise Fears.
Stay on the lookout for Hello Highway because 2012 will without a doubt be a breakthrough year for him.
