Midnight To Twelve Biography
The Alternative-Rock band Midnight To Twelve was born when founder bassist & co-songwriter Al Baca, enlisted Nashville-based friend vocalist Jon Hartman and convinced him to move to the West Coast. In Los Angeles, California USA, the two joined forces with keyboardist Steve Oliver; soon afterwards, they found guitarist Daniel Jordan through an ad in a local paper and with Drew Molleur on the drum throne a bit later, the line-up was complete.
Always willing to do the hard work involved in establishing themselves
in a competitive market like Los Angeles, the band played all around town,
slowly building their audience.
Midnight To Twelve sold some 13,000 copies of their first independently-made recording, out of its tour bus. These sales figures are a testament to the band's powerful live show, as both a solo touring act and as opener for such bands as Buckcherry, Jimmy Eat World, Evanescence, Joan Jett and Saliva. Their debut full-length disc, "King Of Spain", hit store shelves in February 2006 through JKH/Koch Records.
July 2008 saw Midnight To Twelve release its self-titled second album; the 12-song set featured most of the material from their previous LP, including the soaring, pop-savvy first single "Slam" which peaked at #35 on The Hot Mainstream Rock chart.
