The Long Road were formed with a single mad idea: to go back to the source to explore and reimagine what might grow out of the great musical roots of USA; a crazy notion to try distil something original and powerful from the elements that made some of the most potent music ever heard by human ears. The band call it Moonshine Music: taking a few simple, authentic ingredients adding a little heat and magic to try to conjure up some rare, raw spirit.
Three musicians who blend a swampy brew of styles mixed from both sides of the Atlantic, characterised by sharp lyrics, great melodies and the fab sound of acoustic instruments being played with passion and purpose.
Renegade Americana, country blues, acoustic rock? It’s hard to pin down the compelling, distinctive high energy music of Steve Bonham and The Long Road. It’s a kind of music that appeals to the renegade and outlaw in us all.

"The outlaw songsmiths... employ a renegade-Anglo touch to make Americana great again... but they’re less world-weary, more foot down hard with raw whisky energy."
