Born in Las Vegas and raised in the California desert, Brad Lodge discovered his passion for music at the age of ten when he started singing along with his motherís Elvis record collection. As he entered his teen years, the rotating cast of mother and father figures tied to his divorced parents and the haze of smoke from their incessant drug use forced him into his bedroom, where he would barricade himself and pluck the guitar, pen lyrics, and perform songs that expressed his unhappiness and his hope for a brighter future. During those years, Brad found his love, music, and he found his voice, but he was still looking for a way to show it to the world. He packed everything he owned into his 1970 Volkswagen Bug and headed for Los Angeles to try his luck as a musician.
Fate wouldnít let him down. While Brad was sleeping in the backseat of his car or crashing on couches, Dan, James, Jared, and Tim were looking for a voice, a front man, the right person to express their musical energy. They had jammed a little bit here and there, and like Brad, were looking for a way to express themselves through music. Fate brought these men together on the streets of Los Angeles. They began rehearsing together and soon everyone who heard them knew something special was happening. Those marathon sessions in dark and seedy rehearsal studios would provide the foundation for what would become Midnight Hour.
From those early days to the present, the members of Midnight Hour have bonded together as brothers and used music to express their mutual frustration, rage, passion, and hope. Midnight Hour has recorded a still untitled album in their self-built studio, which is currently being mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers, Bloc Party, Hot Hot Heat, Pete Yorn, etc.). Local radio has already noticed the buzz and started spinning a few tracks from the forthcoming album. Local Los Angeles venues have opened their doors to the bandís amazing live show. Their local following is growing and Midnight Hourís future contrasts any darkness their name might imply.
