Excerpt from Toby Oler’s interview with Midnight North, featured on Jambase
Catching Up With Midnight North
On Friday night, Bay Area fixtures Midnight North will open The Mother Hips’ annual holiday show at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. The quintet made up of guitarist Grahame Lesh, multi- instrumentalists Elliott Peck and Alex Jordan, drummer Alex Koford and bassist Connor O’Sullivan appeared on a lot of people’s radars this fall when Phil Lesh and Bob Weir shared the stage with them at SOB’s in New York City.
JamBase contributor Toby Oler caught up with the members of Midnight North at Jackie Greene’s Greene Room, where they were working on recording the follow up to 2015’s Scarlet Skies with engineer David Simon-Baker (Los Lobos, Mother Hips, Jackie Greene) to discuss the genesis of the group, performance highlights from the road and more.
