Virgin Records pop-rock quartet MY FAVORITE HIGHWAY is clearly kicking into top gear — online, on stage, in several of cable television’s most popular series, and in digital sales. The band’s debut album, HOW TO CALL A BLUFF, was released on May 5th 2009. All signs point to a major take-off in progress for the suburban Washington, DC-based group, comprised of David Cook (vocals, piano, guitar), Will Cook (bass), Bobby Morgenthaler (drums), Pat Jenkins (guitar, vocals), as several tracks from their album make noise, attracting fans to My Favorite Highway’s outposts on the web and drawing a mention in Alternative Press’ 100 Bands To Watch in 2009 issue. On the album, “Steel City,” “Dreamer,” “The Chase” and “Bittersweet Life” all reveal the group’s knack for songs that can touch every listener and pass into classic status. “Bittersweet Life” was featured on an episode of MTV’s The Hills, and also “Bigger Than Love” was featured during The Hills season finale. The band has sold over 100,000 individual digital tracks to date. In an album full of standouts, “What Are You Waiting For” (the trailer song for MTV’s The City), “Say So” and “Getaway Car” display the band’s clean, snappy, angular production values; “Simple Life” is a sunny shuffle with real guitar muscle; while “Go” and “Entertain the Pain” both convey urgency without a tortured edge.
