American country group Midland have announced a live show at Dublin's Vicar Street on December 7. The trio, made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy, formed in Dripping Springs Texas in 2016.
Midland thank their success in part to their friendship, and an ounce of kismet. "Midland isn't manufactured," says Cameron. "We are three real friends who stumbled upon making music together." Since then, Billboard have described them as "...one of the biggest success stories in Nashville this year."
Midland cite the Eagles as one of their greatest influences, and like the Eagles, their music has mass appeal. "The commonality with the Eagles is that we set out to make soulful, catchy and accessible music," says Mark. "Our greatest compliment is when somebody who says they're not a country music fan says they really like our songs."
