Itâ€™s full steam ahead for Midnight North after an exciting year featuring major festival plays, a nationwide tour, and the release of a second live record. Midnight North headlined tours and played in support of heavy-hitters such as Grammy winners The Infamous Stringdusters. Rolling Stone hailed Midnight North as the â€œBest New Actâ€ in its review of 2018â€™s Peach Music Festival saying the band â€œtakes the best parts of roots music and weaves them into a tapestry of rock and Americanaâ€. And the best is still to come. In the summer of 2018, Midnight North released their second live record, Selections from the Great American Music Hall. This 8 track album features original live staples like â€œEverydayâ€ and â€œPlaying a Poor Hand Wellâ€, covers like John Prineâ€™s â€œAngel from Montgomeryâ€ and the Deadâ€™s â€œThe Music Never Stoppedâ€. The concert album also features guest appearances by Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, members of Twiddle, and the bandâ€™s hometown horn section, The Northbound Horns.
Rooted in the rowdy spirit of rock & roll, Wild Adriatic has built an international audience on a combination of groove, grit, and guitar-heavy swagger. With the power trioâ€™s newest album, Feel, bandmates Travis Gray, Rich Derbyshire, and Mateo Vosganian update the sound of their influences â€” from Seventies rock to Motown to soul â€” for a contemporary audience, taking influence from the past but never losing sight of the present. They arenâ€™t revivalists; theyâ€™re modern men, carrying the torch of melodic, riff-ready, high-energy rock into new territory.
