Full of drive and passion, the Midwest Riders launched in Flint Michigan and their inaugural show was opening for The Swon Brothers in 2019. After writing original material and touring, the Riders’ rapid success was slowed but not halted when the world shut down in 2020. Determined to stay engaged and active, they built their own home studio, immersed themselves creatively and a first album was born. “Countryish” was recorded at the legendary Sound Emporium Studios in 2020 in Nashville, TN with some of the best players in the industry. Inspired by the roots of Southern rock and country music, torn by the feel of funk and soul, the Riders are now working on their second studio album at Rust Belt Studios. Their talent and camaraderie continues to energize and mesmerize audiences from the midwest to the deep south.
