Before Midland was a band, they were simply a trio of friends. Then, at a wedding where the three members ended up jamming onstage at the rehearsal dinner, it clicked and Midland was born.
“Midland isn’t manufactured. We are three real friends who stumbled upon making music together,” says Cameron Duddy, Midland’s bass player, who is joined onstage by singer Mark Wystrach and lead guitarist Jess Carson.
Described as 70s California country, Midland is known for their smooth, Eagles-style harmonies and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics, all sung with the twang of George Strait. After endearing themselves to fans with the hit radio single “Drinkin’ Problem” and a self-titled EP, Midland unveiled their full-length debut, On the Rocks. In addition to “Drinkin’ Problem,” the album features the songs “Make a Little,” “Altitude Adjustment,” “Nothin’ New Under the Neon,” “At Least You Cried” and “Somewhere on the Wind.”
