2returns to the Eagles, recalling their famous intro to"Seven Bridges Road," with the closing "Somewhere on the Wind." "On the Rocks is a confluence of our musical tastes and our reverence for classic country," says Duddy, whose wife, photographer Harper Smith, shoots all of the group's stylish photos. "This record is truly a nod to the time period we are influenced by," says Carson, a Pacific Northwest native, "and is an effort to bring that sound and that pageantry back to the forefront." "We write with a very visual storytelling approach. We paint that big picture and go to that place," says Wystrach. "Where is this story going? Let's paint it." "Electric Rodeo," with its plaintive piano, sweeping strings and high-in-the-saddle chorus, is a prime example of the "picture" the band talks about creating.And "Check Cashin' Country," a solo composition by Carson, stands as the band's true-life road diary: the tale of a country-rock band trying to find time to sleep as they hustle from gig to gig, barely making enough money to put gas in the tank. It's the country equivalent of Seger's "On the Road." Midland first came together at Duddy's wedding in JacksonHole, Wyoming, where the three members ended up jamming onstage at the rehearsal dinner. "It was this serendipitous chain of events,and it was the best week ever," says Wystrach, who, despite his hippie persona, was actually raised on an Arizona cattle ranch. "By the end, we knew the three of us had amazing chemistry." "Midland isn't manufactured," says Duddy, born in California. "We are three real friends who stumbled upon making music together. "Whether they intended it or not, Midland are filling a void in country,with songs that run the gamut from lush Urban Cowboy anthems to loose campfire sing-alongs. Putting their own spin on a classic sound, they're making something old relevant again. "We are a band," saysCarson, declaratively. "That's a big part of the spirit of what we do, that group experience and camaraderie."Says Wystrach, "We've poured our hearts and souls into writing and making these songs and are extremely proud of what we've been able to create."With On the Rocks, Midland have captured a sound decades in the making that is just right for today.
Desure is a writer of deeply moving songs that'll smack you in the face with emotion. He believes in the power of pure transparency in his music. "It builds a stronger connection," he says of his affinity for raw, unbridled performances. That's how the light gets in, to borrow a line from the great Leonard Cohen.
