Highbeams began in 2012 writing dozens of songs and performing them live anywhere they could. In 2014 they captured their feel good, folk rock sound with their premier album “ONE WORD”, recorded in their own home studio, and began touring throughout the Southeast. Before long, they were drawing larger and larger audiences and opening for national acts like Vertical Horizon and Chase Bryant. In the year since their albums release, Highbeams has grown ever closer to becoming the band it was always envisioned to be, and is making the most of every opportunity to grow, perform, and share their dream with the world. Highbeams are Adam Pendlington, Ian Pendlington, and Stephen Quinn.
