In today’s world of music and easy accessibility to new music, it is hard to find a “smash” album from artists who are breaking out online.

But that is all about to change as Australian modern rock band HIGHWAY BLONDE release their new album “Winning Ways”.

HIGHWAY BLONDE (formerly known as Smart Artists) are regarded by many as one of the most dynamic up and coming modern rock bands in the country.

The bands name 'Highway Blonde' was born after one member was reputedly picked up at a truck stop just south of the Northern NSW town of Byron Bay by none other than Paris Hilton and was then whisked away to a private party somewhere in the NSW North Coast Hinterland.

Fans of bands such as The Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon and The Killers have for the past couple of years been cranking Highway Blonde tunes on over 300 radio stations throughout the US alone.

With the band continuing to receive much critical and popular acclaim both locally and internationally for their tight, melodic songs, the release of their new album 'Winning Ways' is only certain to propell the bands music onto many more ipods.

So, buckle up. Roll down the windows. Crank the volume. Pop 'Winning Ways' into the CD slot. And get ready to rock.

Tracks like ‘Let it go’, ‘Annie’ and 'Inside Moves' showcase Highway Blonde's ability to write intelligent high-energy rock songs, where as tracks such as ‘Hurting on the Inside’ and the epic conclusion to the album, ‘Bad Girl’ display the band’s desire to work outside the 3 minute boundary.

Love, sex, reparation, salvation, being and nothingness: these subjects entwine and influence the music of Highway Blonde.

But down to its bones, commercial modern rock is what Highway Blonde write… they just layer those bones in muscle, and give the beast a heart.

Throughout 2009, both 'Annie' and Inside Moves' reached the No 1 position on the charts. The video clip to ‘Inside Moves’ won the 2009 Pacific Film and Television Award in the 'Best Independent' category.

The song 'Inside Moves' also was awarded 8th position in the 2009 Australian Songwriting Awards.

And the bands formula for success ….. avoid trends, write cool songs and deliver a brand of modern rock full of catchy chorus and crunchy guitars in its purest rocking form. Sounds simple really!

With their eyes set firmly on consolidating their recent successes, Highway Blonde is set to continue wooing audiences nationally.

Whether it's a corporate event, a music festival, or a night at the popular local venue, Highway Blonde is known as the band that creates an event and delivers an awesome performance everytime.

Let it go (Do you just wanna)
"There is NOTHING like this music on American radio currently. Just like the other transcendental moments with music in the past, MY JAW DROPPED. Highway Blonde are FANTASTIC, invest 4 minutes and you will realize things will never be the same.... " Ken Bailey - Westfield Radio Ohio
