We asked, he answered …

Regional country group Lost Highway’s lead vocalist Jesse Steberg talks about the band’s “This Feels Good” album and more. 

What is your favorite part of a live performance?

It’s the all-around energy from the crowd and being able to put a smile on people’s faces.

Do you remember your first public music performance? And what do you recall about it?

I was Joseph in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and I was scared to death.

In five words or less, describe your new album “This Feels Good?”

It’s a feel good album.

Is there a meaning behind the album title?

Just that the majority of the songs on the album have that vibe. They just “feel good.”

What is the last thing you watched on T.V.?

“Chicago Fire”

If you weren’t performing live on stage, where would someone find you?

You’d probably find me at my cabin in Park Rapids.

What is one thing someone wouldn’t know about you? 

I eat chocolate and peanut butter in the middle of the night – almost every night.

If you could perform with any artist – dead or alive – who would it be?
