"Gloom Balloon is full of surprises!" -Spin Magazine
“Gloom Balloon is energizing, hilarious, heartbreaking, depressing, and sometimes it’s all of those things at the exact same instant. Gloom Balloon physically or emotionally grabs you by the head; there can be no doubt that Fleming will continue to be one of the best lyricists and one of the best performers you’ll ever see.”
Christopher the Conquered
Middle Folk
Middle Folk (formally known as Backfire) is the musical collaboration of brothers Ben and Jack McLaughlin, Lukas Olson, and Erik Shouse. The band plays original folk-rock tunes consisting of the songwriting of all four members with deep cut covers thrown in. Middle Folk has been in the making for the past few years and has now been officially declared a band. We hope you enjoy our shows and music and sincerely appreciate your support and interest.
