“Jackson Holte & The Highway Patrol are a Grammy-eligible rock and roll band from Missoula, MT, formed by several of the town’s greasiest bar-band veterans in 2017. Jackson Holte is a hard-nosed, soft-spoken folk singer who aspires only to possess the cathartic wit of John Prine and the biceps of Kris Kristofferson. The Highway Patrol are Aaron Chiazza on drums, Eric Rudnick on pedal steel, Tyson Gerhardt on guitar, and Marko ‘The Midnight Shadow’ Capoferri on bass; a band hotter than the furnaces of Nebuchadnezzar. They have been called ‘a pretty rippin’ band’ by U.S. Senator Jon Tester, ‘a cavalcade of horses on the plains of America’ by an independent Portuguese music podcast, and ‘heroes’ by the owner of a small Chinese restaurant in Virginia City.”

“There is an extensive proportion of the album that resides in the rootsy styles that we’re well known for (country, rockabilly, blues, folk) but there is also a good chunk that explores the harder styles (hard rock, prog rock, jazz fusion, alt rock). It is quite possibly the most varied mash up that we have presented to date and features visits to extremely niche genres such as horror folk. This particular compilation is also unique in that it is the first compilation since our very first release where all artists are previously unfeatured on Aldora Britain Records. Keeping things fresh and moving forward.”

“Aldora Britain Records is an e-zine and record label that promotes the music and work of authentic independent or underground artists from all around the world. Originally established in 2013, they revamped themselves in 2018 with a brand-new approach. Their first weekly compilation, aptly titled THE SECOND COMING, was released in late 2019. They now also release original singles, EPs and charity projects.”
