Cameron Duddy, Mark Wystrach, and Jess Carson – the three men who make up Midland – can always count on their families to go big for the Christmas celebration.
“We go hard in my family,” Cameron Duddy says a press release from the trio’s label. “Black Friday is Christmas, man, and ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ always on the eve of Christmas.”
“My mom is like, Christmas is her favorite holiday, and she goes all the way out, and it’s kind of crazy how much she does it,” adds lead singer Mark Wystrach. “But to me, it was always about the music, like my mom just blasts all the classics. You know, she loves like The Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing ‘Oh (Little Town of) Bethlehem’ and ‘O Holy Night’ and stuff like that.”
Jess Carson grew up on a Christmas tree farm. “You’d think that I would be sick of that smell of the Christmas tree,” he says. “But every year nothing says Christmas to me like that smell.”
