Full Bio

The road to Las Vegas singer-songwriter Jeff Mix’s debut album, “Lost Vegas Hiway,” has been a long and winding one, but he is making up for lost time.

Mix wrote his first song in the fourth grade, drummed in a heavy metal band with his brother as a teenager, and later began writing songs influenced by the Texas country songwriters he discovered in his 20’s, but he never thought to sing his own songs until he was in his 40’s.

“I never thought I could sing,” he said.

But nearly 20-plus years living in Las Vegas, where Mix moved from Florida at age 19 to build neon signs, he finally decided to start hitting open mics and songwriter circles, eventually traveling to Nashville to attend a songwriting workshop with revered songwriter Mary Gauthier.

“It took me a long time to get in that frame of mind when I thought I’d be ok,” he said.

Mix assembled a band, The Songhearts, working his way up to club gigs. But his confidence still wavered, even before traveling to Texas to record a single with legendary Texas producer Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams, Ray Wylie Hubbard), who complimented Mix’s writing and vocals.

“It really kinda weirded me out,” Mix said. “I thought maybe Gurf was wrong.”

However, it is now plain to see that Morlix wasn’t wrong, and that Mix was learning songwriting and performing in the fast lane. “Lost Vegas Hiway,” is proof — an ambitious concept album written from the various perspectives of fictional characters at a real Downtown Las Vegas budget motel, the Gateway Motel.
