Highway 95

Highway 95 is an acoustic/rock country music duo, based in Karratha, Western Australia, performing at events and local venues across the Pilbara Region.

The duo formed in January 2023, featuring Bob Derschow (a traditional owner in the Pilbara Region) on guitar and Nicole Bylund on vocals. Both have many years of experience performing in multiple bands over the last 20-30 years. They share a passion for writing and performing original country music.

Highway 95’s unique brand of entertainment fuses modern country music vibes with a strong vocal and guitar presence. The emotion in their music shines through with every performance, captivating audiences, and allowing listeners to connect emotionally with each song. They have publicly released several original songs and are set to release more throughout 2024.
