Highway Natives, Clarke Sexton, Jordan Allen
March 10 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm CST
Jordan Allen & the Bellwethers can be best described as “Southern Rock meets the Appalachian Mountains”. Their music focuses on telling stories and is accented with catchy riff writing to create a unique musical experience. They have been performing as Jordan Allen & the Bellwethers since May of 2013.
Over the years, the style of music has changed, but one thing has always stayed constant: the band’s attention to songwriting. In 2016, their song “The Wanderer” took home the overall winner at The Richard Leigh Songwriters Festival song contest. The band’s frontman, Jordan, has been included on the writer’s night roster at the Historic Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee since February of 2017.
The band has 3 full length studio albums. The latest record, called Give My Love to Jenny, was released in November of 2020.
Born and raised in the hills of Eastern Kentucky, Clarke Sexton has been making music throughout the entirety of his life. At 18, he decided to take on Nashville and now at 26 is pushing music forward while staying in tune with that classic influence everyone wants to hear. Vocalist, guitarist, bassist, drummer, producer.. whatever the music calls for, Clarke strives toward!
Highway Natives is an American rock 5-piece out of Nashville, TN. With “a retro ‘70s vibe combined with roots-flavored country-rock brawn, Highway Natives conjures up early Allman Brothers, The Black Crowes, and savors of the fictional band Stillwater in Almost Famous,” (Medium). Having such a wide array of eclectic influences, at their core, the group can best be distinguished by their rich, soulful harmonies, artful full-bodied stylings on guitar, and a rhythm section that’s groovy timekeeping is nestled tightly underneath singable and raw lyrics that trade between the two lead singers.
