Midland is such a fun band! Made up of Mark Wystrach (vocals), Cameron Duddy (Bass guitar), and Jess Carson (guitar), they first burst on to the scene a few years back after each had successful careers outside of music. The three got together at Cameron's wedding- both Mark and Jess were groomsmen- played for fun, and decided that they needed to be a band. Named after the Dwight Yoakam song "Fair To Midland," they released an eponymous EP in 2016. Their first full length album came out in 2017, and produced hit songs "Drinkin' Problem," "Make A Little," and "Burn Out." Today, a new album called "Let It Roll" was released, which features their latest hit "Mr. Lonely."
The guys were ice enough to take time out of their day to call and chat about the new album, Dennis Quaid starring in the video to Mr. Lonely, and a few other fun tidbits. Here is our conversation in it's entirety.
Here is a fun picture with Midland and I taken last fall. L-R, Cameron Duddy, my boyfriend Steve, Mark Wystrach, me, and Jess Carson.
