"MIDNIGHT TRANSIT CO. LEAD SINGER NEW SOLO ALBUM"

Check out the new album by Bob Russell, the lead singer of the band Midnight Transit Co. "Running Crazy" is available now at iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and more. - Spectra Music Group


"Tracks of the week"

Back in the day Russell opened up for the likes of Alice Cooper, The Guess Who, New York Dolls and many others. Before that he grew up flitting between England and Chicago, jamming with musicians on both side of the Atlantic; which clearly informed his bluesy playing, to flattering effect, as we see here. He's since done studio work throughout Chicago, and now has turned his attention to his own music, streamlining years of experience into classy slices (even if it cuts out a little abruptly at the end). - Loudersound


"Midnight Transit Co plays 191 Toole, in the heart of warehouse city in Tucson."

...Midnight Transit Co. kicked off the evening with some funky blues and rock. What a nice surprise they were…with Bob Russell on guitar and vocals, Les Merrihew on drums, Stefin Gordon on bass and vocals, Rob Francis on keys, and Rene R Andreotta on guitar and vocals. They performed a really catchy, rhythmic set. This is one tight and talented band!
...I was thrilled to be witnessing one of the great under-rated bands of
our time. Midnight Transit Co. is one helluva blues rock band with
dazzling intensity and feel. - ION Indie Magazine

Bio

Midnight Transit Co. is an original band from Tucson Arizona whose music is influenced by some of the greatest rock bands of the 60’s and 70’s.

Midnight Transit Co. was formed  by five extremely talented musicians. Their music combines American and British artist influence along with their own creative song writing skills.

Their music is reminiscent but fresh - familiar yet exciting! If you took all of the best elements of a number of classic bands and threw in a huge amount of creativity - you have MTC.
