About Midnight Pilot
Midnight Pilot is an americana pop-rock band originally from West Michigan. The four members have been playing together since early high school and stayed together throughout individual collegiate endeavors that sent them to various corners of the country. Despite the distance, the band recorded and produced several full length albums over the years and continued to develop new material. In 2014,Midnight Pilot moved to Nashville and started fresh. Drawing influences from bands like The Beach Boys, Tom Petty and Wilco, Midnight Pilot writes music with good old fashioned harmonies fortified by steady rock rhythms perfect for cruising through prairies in a drop-top Bel Air. At its core, Midnight Pilot is a group of friends working to create the best version of their music as possible while remembering not to take themselves too seriously and enjoy the ride.
