Human Highway Announce New York Shows!

Human Highway
(featuring Nick Thorburn of Islands and Jim Guthrie)
Release Debut Album, “Moody Motorcycle,“ Today on Suicide Squeeze * Announce Debut Performances September 15th and 16th in New York City!

On the duo's best songs, they harmonize like Simon & Garfunkel shutting their eyes against approaching shades of winter. - Spin Magazine

A nice midpoint between the easygoing harmonies of the Everly Brothers and the big open spaces of the mid-70s west coast songwriter boom. - Pitchfork

One of my favorite albums I've heard this year, so far at least, is the new collaboration project between Nick Thornburn, of Islands, and Canadian folk singer Jim Guthrie dubbed Human Highway. - My Old Kentucky Blog

Excellent. - Prefix

We are very proud to announce the debut release from Toronto's Human Highway, a duo featuring Islands' frontman Nick Thorburn, alongside seminal Canadian songwriter, Jim Guthrie, entitled "Moody Motorcycle."

To celebrate the album's release, courtesy of the good folks at Suicide Squeeze Records, the band has announced their first ever live performances for the lucky few in the New York Metropolitan area. Appearing as co-headliners w/ Harper Simon, Thorburn and Guthrie will bring Human Highway, for the first time ever, to New York's Cake-Shop on Monday, September 15th, and the lovely Joe's Pub on Tuesday, September 16th. Be sure to reserve your place on the guestlist for either show fast as spots are filling up quickly... we look forward to seeing you there!
