Midnight Pressure has seen rapid success over a short period of time. Their songwriting to date is eclectic and brimming with tension; the blues permeates their music like capillaries through so much tissue. Midnight Pressure stirs your loins with music that is sexual, gritty, and a little dangerous.
The Denver-based band is comprised of five members. The soulful vocals belong to Graham Hartle, a rare talent with a seductive growl. Matt Leeke creams the audience with heart-attack solos and a torrential stage presence. In contrast, longtime composer Richard “Big Dick” Schwering writes methodical solos and enchanting melodies. Dave “The Gravedigger” Morrison (bass) and Andy Austin (drums) drive the band’s raucous energy relentlessly forward.
The quintet has recorded three original songs to date. Fan favorite “Together Anymore (The Whore Song)” is an introspective song about falling out of love, trying to move on, succumbing to lust, and ending up right back where you started. “Non-Stop Blues” is exactly what you’d expect from this band when a 12 bar blues tune is left to their devices. “Birds in Flight” marks what may be a watershed moment for the band. Richard and Dave weave bass and guitar melodies through Matt’s dark pop chord progression while Andy’s minimalistic accents develop into an accelerating intensity that defines the climax of the song.
Building an ever-growing fan-base, Midnight Pressure has performed in several venues around the Denver Metro Area. Most notably, the band opened for the winner of America’s Got Talent, Michael Grimm. They are excited to build on the sound they have created and to dig deeper into the roots of their inspiration.
Blues-Rock from Denver, CO.

Waiting Til Three
With the release of the album Nowhere Bound, Waiting Til Three brings a new feel to a classic genre. Lush, with addicting progressions, a classic rock approach, and pop undertones throughout, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie rock anthems. Though the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds it all together much like a concept album would. Most importantly, the record never loses sight of the emotional platform great songs are built from.
The first single, “18 & The Rules Change”, is a classic rock powerhouse. Complete with a bouncing rhythm, catchy melody lines, and loads of energy, the song seems to breathe and build as it plays on.
“Turning 18, life gets thrown at you fast and you have to start making important decisions for yourself. As the song moves along, Jesse sings about turning 25 and still feeling the same pressure to make important ‘adulting’ decisions, ” explains the band of thier single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding of where Waiting Til Three are coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.
“I think the entire album is about struggling with what life throws at you, particularly as a young adult. 18 & The Rules Change is a good introduction to what you will hear throughout the album. Songs about dealing with change, love and tragedies, sung and performed with real emotion and passion,” says drummer Grant of the album and song writing approach.
Conceived in a small Rocky Mountains town, Waiting Til Three is composed of guitarist/ vocalist Jesse Hughes and drummer Grant Payton. Being a lifelong musician, Hughes had set up a home studio and rehearsal space in his Grand Lake cabin after relocating from Austin TX. After some time, Grant, a good friend, needed a pace to crash and Hughes let him stay for a while. As their friendship took shape, Jesse asked Grant to hop on the drums to accompany him in writing some songs. Before long their sound also took shape and things quickly escalated. Soon after, the duo was playing local bars and venues. Eventually the two decided to relocate to Yuba City, CA to continue the bands progression. With a new found urge to write new material, the duo went to Chicago to record in a studio Grant’s uncle had put together. It was then that the Nowhere Bound album was finally born. A huge step forward for the band, the release is the epitome of where they are with their sound right now.
The album is now available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets, and the band is planning on performing up and down the front range of the Denver, CO area in support of their release.
