In the summer of 2016 songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Will Gonzalez started writing a handful of songs about self-skepticism & optimism. Soon after, Will joined forces with producer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist, Steven Martinez to record and produce them using techniques he acquired through past recordings he did with Will & drummer Daniel Jurado’s previous band, Fine Minds, as well as Stevens previous band, The Ambient Light (who Jurado also drummed for). Will, Daniel and Steven met years ago through playing shows with their old bands throughout Los Angeles and The San Gabriel Valley. Their new musical project called Pure Mids is an alternative/new gaze rock sound with a splash of neo-psychedelia. All three members are from Southern California.
