Thunder 106presents

with special guest DESURE


Hailing from Dripping Springs, TX lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound that is rounded out with lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition in both sound and style, the trio initially garnered attention playing clubs in the region. Their critically-acclaimed freshman album, ON THE ROCKS (Big Machine Records), features 13 tracks with songwriting credits from each member alongside hitmakers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. Launching to rave reviews from notable outlets like Los Angeles Times and Rolling Stone Country with Washington Post touting ON THE ROCKS as “the year’s best Country album.” The Dann-Huff produced album earned the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Country Album Sales chart upon release. Their debut No. 1 single “Drinkin’ Problem,” which offers an intentional nod to Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, earned the band their first GRAMMY® Awards nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Midland recently joined forces with Jay De La Cueva of Mexico’s Moderatto music group to re-record a Spanish version of the PLATINUM-certified chart-topper – “Drinkin’ Problem (Brindemos)” – available now. Ahead of the April 15 live broadcast of the ACM Awards in Las Vegas, Midland have been named New Vocal Group of the Year and are the most-nominated debut artist this year with three total nods, also including Vocal Group of the Year and Single of the Year (“Drinkin’ Problem”). This year Country Radio Broadcasters voted the trio as one of the esteemed 2018 CRS New Faces. Midland is currently on the road with Little Big Town and Kacey Musgraves for THE BREAKERS TOUR and will join Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOUR this fall.


Music is a powerful thing. And in the eyes of singer, songwriter  Desure, it can be the riff that rid you of that bad mood, or the chords that steer you through a smile. Born and bred in Los Angeles surrounded by a big, close family, Desure stumbled upon Neil Young and Bob Dylan at an early age, and his life would forever be changed.

A writer of deeply moving songs that’ll smack you in the face with emotion, Desure believes in the power of pure transparency in his music. “It builds a stronger connection,” he says of his affinity for raw, unbridled performances. That’s how the light gets in, to borrow a line from the great Leonard Cohen.
