Hailing from Dripping Springs Texas, Midland, made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy is the embodiment of Seventies California country, all smooth Eagles harmonies, and heart- on-your-sleeve lyrics. Their songs are intoxicating country sung with the twang of George Strait.
Recently signed to Big Machine Records, Midland has been in the studio with ace songwriters and producers like Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Dann Huff. The sessions have yielded some of the most traditional-sounding country music to come out of Nashville in a decade. Lead single “Drinkin’ Problem” evokes Gary Stewart and Merle Haggard two of Midland’s biggest inspirations. Their self-titled EP was released on October 28th.
