ABOUT MIDLAND

Originally formed in Dripping Springs, Texas, lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound, rounded out by lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition both in sound and style, the band initially garnered attention playing clubs in the Texas region. Already featured in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and Billboard, their full-length debut album on Big Machine Records features their #1 song, “Drinkin’ Problem,” and is available everywhere September 22nd. Midland intentionally nods to the wild west with Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, channeling legends idols Dwight Yoakam and Willie Nelson, both who they previously opened for on the road. Directed by band member Cameron, Midland was nominated for a CMT Music Award for Group Video of the Year. Watch the video here: http://vevo.ly/j6UPkQ.
