Being able to 'express yourself and do your own thing' is what The Midnight Hours are all about. Jimi Hendrix once said in an interview, "most groups I was with they didn’t let me do my own thing, you know, like feedback 'in The Midnight Hours'". Drawing inspiration from the legends of classic rock and the pioneers of reggae, The Midnight Hours are definitely doing their own thing with a sound of blues infused reggae tinged with rock and roll.
From the historic town of Fort Langley, BC, the band has been together since 2010 with Sean Simpson on lead vocals and guitar, Grant Easingwood on bass/vocals, Devon Forsythe on drums/vocals, and Ana Serena on vocals/percussion.
The Midnight Hours have kept a steady schedule since forming, playing live in pubs and clubs all over Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and Vancouver Island. In April 2010, they released their first EP, Route 66, followed by Motel Blues, in March 2011. The song “Motel Blues” was featured on 104.3 The Shore’s Coastal Blues Program, leading it up to a spot in the top 20 Shore Song Search 2011. This accomplishment led them into the studio again to record their first full length self titled album, The Midnight Hours, released in January 2012.
As the band and music progresses so does their singing and harmonies, exploring new styles and directions. The Midnight Hours are currently held up at Nimbus Studios recording new tracks, planning to release a new EP in September 2012 with the working title, "Dope Girl."
As a long run project, The Midnight Hours are looking into a large scale tour experience while continuing to gig locally as much as possible to get their music out there!
