2015 came bearing the gift of rapid territorial expansion for Midnight North. They landed a coveted late night slot at their first High Sierra Music Festival and became regulars on the California summer festival circuit. The band made a lot of new fans on a successful East Coast summer tour and gave Chicago and Southern California a taste while they were at it.
When you come to a Midnight North show, you'll find Elliott Peck, Grahame Lesh and Alex Jordan sliding into three part harmonies that are as comfortable as an old pair of jeans. You'll hear bassist Connor O'Sullivan and new drummer Alex Koford making themselves at home in any groove from a stomp to a slow-burn or boogie. Settle in and you might find Midnight North writing a new page in the American songbook.
In addition to all the touring, Midnight North is entering their third year of holding down a weekly gig at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA where they began webcasting live and connecting with fans as far away as Japan. Every Sunday night, you are one click away from tuning in for fun nights like one in June of 2014 that had Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh standing in for an out-of-town Connor. This is a band that is as happy logging highway miles as it is keeping the home fires warm.
Midnight North released two recordings in 2015. Scarlet Skies, the band's second full length album was released on June 9th and Stayin' Single, Drinkin' Doubles, a 4 song digital EP, was released on Valentine's Day 2015. About the EP's title track, The Washington Post has this to say: "the Dead never wrote a song quite like 'Stayin' Single, Drinkin' Doubles'. Sung by Elliott Peck, the live staple is an exuberant, twangy anthem with a tinge of sadness that could pass for a Kacey Musgraves tune."
“… a soaring, dramatically powerful voice.” – New York Times
“Atkins has a big voice full of longing, Loretta Lynn elegance and slightly surreal folk-pop that evoke moonlit walks with the shadows closing in.” – Rolling Stone
“ Her voice is that of a tremolo-fuelled siren, at once adult and nakedly emotional…” – BBC
Named Rolling Stone’s “Top 10 Artists To Watch” in 2007 for her debut album Neptune City, Nicole Atkins has appeared on numerous late night TV shows, including “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Conan”, and “Later… with Jools Holland”, and featured in media outlets ranging from the New York Times to Time magazine.
