we used to be country rock but we're probably more country pop....
Charleen and mick formed midwezt originally as a duo in 2005 and after a year playing various venues and building up their fan base decided to add lead guitar and bass guitar which saw them record and release their first 6 track EP (BEGGIN FOR KINDNESS) 2 tracks off the EP (WHERE WILL I BE and TEN TO ONE) were regularly played on radio stations in UK and U.S.A and with this, gained them a place in the I.P.O (international pop overthrow) which is an american music organisation which also allowed them to showcase their music at the cavern liverpool .
2008 saw midwezt record their 2nd 6 track EP but this time a live recording,A successful launch was held with t,shirts badges etc and their fan base became stronger.
After 3 years playing and writing and after a break, midwezt are back with a new line up and a new sound and have just finished recording their Debut Album [Closer] which was launched at freedom in soho London.
