The Midnight Sons

The Midnight Sons

The Midnight Sons Band is a Canadian rock band consisting of Alex Johnston (Guitar/Vocals), Patrick Docherty (Drums/Vocals), Ian MacIntyre (Bass/Guitar) and Daniel Stark (Guitar).  The group was formed in December of 2012 in Whitehorse, Yukon.  Since their inception, they have been spreading their music playing music festivals and venues across Canada. Their original sound is a mix of melodic guitar rifts, dynamic percussion, ambient background sounds with soulful lyrics and vocals. Their influences range from contemporary rock, to blues, to folk and their lyrics shed light on both the good and the bad of young manhood, and life north of 60.  The Midnight Sons band was formed December 2012.
