THE HUMAN HIGHWAY
Formed for a 2014 show at the Newport Record Club series in Fremantle to play the songs of one of the most influential and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters of our time, the ‘Human Highway’ is fronted by long time lovers of Neil Young, David Hyams and Rose Parker. The 6-piece line up also includes bassist Roy Martinez, drummer Russell Wilson, fiddler Adam Gare, and Jeremy Threlfall on pedal steel and guitar.
Covering music from the beginning of Young’s solo career in the late ’60s through to the 21st century, the band is equally adept at capturing the essence of Young’s two primary styles: from the gentle folk and country-rock of albums like “Comes A Time”, to the electric guitar driven rock of the Crazy Horse days.
They have continued to play shows at the Newport in Fremantle, and more recently Freo Social, as well as sell out shows at Perth’s Quarry Amphitheatre (550 capacity) each year from 2018 to 2020.
“The Human Highway are awesome. We ran an evening with them at The Quarry Amphitheatre in November 2018, and it was a sell-out success, with the crowd loving the performance and shouting for several encores. They are thoroughly professional, with an excellent sound, and I would highly recommend them. David Hyams and his band are a pleasure to work with, and I hope we will do many more shows together in the future. We had only positive feedback from the crowd”. Mark Taylor, Wasup Promotions
“The talent and authenticity of the group was outstanding, and we received many comments of congratulations and praise for the night’s entertainment. I would not hesitate in recommending the Human Highway to other venues as both a popular appealing concert and a night of quality performance.” Drew Dymond, Manager Albany Entertainment Centre
