Middle Western

Middle Western was formed out of a long friendship and discussions the various members had while playing on each others’ recordings and the occasional band show organized as a way to play and sing songs written and recorded by other members. The band is made up of singer/songwriter and Bloodshot Records artist William Elliott Whitmore on bass guitar and vocals; singer/songwriter/session keyboardist and founder of legendary Iowa roots music label, Trailer Records, David Zollo on keyboards and vocals; Chicago multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Stephen “The Kid” Howard (James McCartney, Pinebender, Mississippi Heat) on electric guitar; Stevie Doyle (The Hoyle Brothers) on electric and slide guitars; and in-demand Iowa City drummer Brian Cooper on percussion. Mixing New Orleans piano stomps, Crazy Horse-era guitar epics and proto-garage boogie, Middle Western just released their debut record, which was recorded in Lone Tree, Iowa, at Luke Tweedy’s Flat Black Studios.
