Formed through happenstance in the fall of 2017, The Long Way began as a project of mutual artistic desire.
Tillett and Taylor met ‘cross a copper bar counter through friends in New York City. With the multi-talented Day joining a short time later, the three all wanted to make music that fulfilled the aesthetics they shared. All hailing from the south, though having a myriad of different influences, they aspired to make music based on their roots. 

After writing a slew of music, they selected the few songs they felt would fit best together, and decided to get it done. Recording their debut EP with Taylor Bradshaw at the tail end of January, over the next few months they have continued to work and refine their sound and lyric style. The Best We Had was released the first of April and is by no means a joke. 

In June of 2018, guitarist Tanner Lackey joined the band, and the lineup was complete.

The quartet are currently working on their full LP: What We Wait For.
