MI Basement Session Mini Documentary-Don Middlebrook
Producer Duane Weed has a knack for taking a dive into a story and making it real. Don Middlebrook, writes songs about life, but more importantly about people. “In this mini music documentary Don shares a story of how two of his song titles meet and make a connection; The Girl with the Clothes Tag Out and Bike Ride around the Island,” states Duane. “Don shares that many great songs are written in a cubical in Nashville or New York, for him… it has to be real.”
Guitarist Rush Clement shares how Don’s ability to improvise on the spot by adding an “extra verse” or even a full-length song for folks in the audience. Duane continues, “Check out the last song in this video. Totally made up on the spot about people in the audience. He makes it real, entertaining and as I have heard before… ‘this separate him from any artist you have ever experienced!” Check out more Michigan Music at MI Basement Sessions.
