It’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 “Best New
Act” in its review of 2018’s Peach Music Festival saying the band
“takes the best parts of roots music and weaves them into a tapestry
of rock and Americana”. 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 “Everyday” and “Playing a
Poor Hand Well”, covers like John Prine’s “Angel from Montgomery” and
the Dead’s “The Music Never Stopped”. The concert album also features
guest appearances by Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, members of Twiddle, and the
band's hometown horn section, The Northbound Horns.

Immediately after their sophomore studio release, 2015’s Scarlet
Skies, Midnight North - fronted by lead songwriters Elliott Peck &
Grahame Lesh with lush Hammond B3 organ, and harmony work from Alex
Jordan, and strong rhythm section work from bass player Connor
O’Sullivan and drummer Nathan Graham - began touring the country in
earnest, visiting the East Coast and the Midwest for the first time in
Summer 2015. The band wrote the majority of 2017’s Under the Lights in
the following months, and the lyrical road themes - the initial
excitement, the longing for home, and the inherent need to keep moving
- shine through. “Under the Lights is the perfect title for this
collection of songs,” said O’Sullivan. “These songs and lyrics are
about being a band of musicians on the road away from home. Songs
literally performed and tested under the lights at countless venues
across the US.”

2019 and beyond will continue the growth for Midnight North, as the
expanding discography and consistent national touring help pave the
way for more and more fans to discover the band. “These songs tell our
story, at least up to this point,” said Lesh. “Our job is to sing you
these stories as honestly as we can and transport you into our world
for an hour or two.”
