Country trio Midland bring their live show to Ireland
Made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy, a trio of friends based in Dripping Springs, Texas, Midland 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. And it's impossible to resist.
Midland — the guys took their name from a Dwight Yoakam song — excel in setting a mood, transporting the listener to another place and time. This is music made for wide-open skies, endless deserts and wondering where the road is going to take you next. They had a hand in writing all thirteen songs on their debut album On The Rocks, working with top songwriters like Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, who also co-produced On The Rocks with Dan Huff.
Signed to Big Machine Records, Midland hit the studio refining and expanding their catalog with ace songwriters like Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. The sessions yielded some of the most traditional-sounding country music to come out of Nashville in a decade. Lead single "Drinkin' Problem" (which has sold over 250,000 copies, had 13 million views and reached #6 on Hot Country Songs in the US and #1 in Canada)
Whether they intended it or not, Midland have filled a void in country music. Like their inspirations the Eagles, they are writing and recording songs with mass appeal.
