Formed in Tacoma, Washington, Midnight Salvage Co. (MSCo.) has been steadily building a following all over the Northwest with their high energy live performances. Playing venues from Seattle to Missoula (and everywhere in between), MSCo. continues to impress with their brand of timeless rock & roll – part E Street Band, part Johnny Cash, mixed with just the right amount of The Hold Steady.
After a series of late night acoustic guitar jams back in 2008, Brason Alexander (Vocals/Guitar) and Bryan Kiehl (Guitar) began ditching the Wilco and Tom Petty cover songs and started writing original music. Once seven or eight songs had been penned and after a couple of open mic performances, Alexander and Kiehl began looking for bandmates. In Aubrey Shelton (Piano), Dustin Lau (Bass), and Michael Haley (Drums), they were lucky enough to find guys who shared a similar rock and roll vision.
As the band has grown, so has the song writing. The additions of Shelton, Lau and Haley have moved the band's music in to an exciting new direction. What was once a two man writing partnership is now a complete five person collaboration. You can definitely hear all of the individual contributions being made.
Recorded at the legendary Egg Studios in Seattle, WA with Conrad Uno (Sonic Youth, Presidents of the United States of America, Mudhoney), Midnight Salvage Co.’s much anticipated debut album is slated for a spring 2012 release.
