The Middle Ground

The Middle Ground emerged on the Milwaukee music scene in late 2012 as The Joe Neary Band, and has quickly gained the reputation of putting on high quality live shows. Their first album, "From Love, to Loss, to Living," was released June 2013 under the name Joe Neary, and was nominated for a 2013 RadioMilwaukee Music Award. The band's varied influences of pop, blues, and alternative have likened them to Coldplay, Maroon 5, and OneRepublic. In their first full year together, The Middle Ground had showcases at RedGorilla Music Fest in Austin, TX, Summerfest, and Yellow Phone Music Conference. The band won the 2014 WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Award for New Artist of the Year, and is currently working on an upcoming EP for fall of 2014. [+]
