Midland On Their Debut Album, "On The Rocks"
With all the chest-thumping going on in Nashville today, where bluster and swagger have replaced heart and soul, you half expect some of country music's male stars to be sporting bruises. That's what makes Midland, a trio of friends based in Dripping Springs, Texas, so undeniably refreshing. Made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy, Midland is the embodiment of Seventies California country, all smooth Eagles harmonies and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Midland's debut album, "On the Rocks," excels at setting a mood, transporting the listener to another place and time. It's an album made for wide-open skies, endless deserts and wondering where the road is going to take you next. Midland stops by BUILD to talk about the album.
