MIDLAKE heads to Austin for three shows at 3TEN this fall on September 18 (with Dancey Jenkins of The Texas Gentlemen), October 29 (with Buffalo Hunt), and November 27 (with James Petralli of White Denim)!


Midlake is an American folk rock band from Denton, Texas, formed in 1999. The band consists of Eric Pulido, McKenzie Smith, Paul Alexander, Eric Nichelson, Jesse Chandler, and Joey McClellan. In 2012, vocalist, guitarist and primary songwriter Tim Smith left the band during the recording of its fourth studio album.


Recorded under the moniker Buffalo Hunt, “Apple Tree” is the debut single and video by Stephanie Hunt, Austin-based songwriter and co-frontwoman of the band Nancy And Beth, opposite Megan Mullally.

Backed by the Texas Gentlemen, “Apple Tree” is inspired by the great Doug Sahm.  “The first time I heard Doug’s music it was like being given permission to cross pollinate. I related to him as a fellow Texan who loves where they come from, but can’t get away from wanting to add the cosmic sound to it,” Hunt tells Rolling Stone.  

“Apple Tree” is the first song released from Buffalo Hunt’s upcoming debut LP Play the Fool, out summer 2020 on the Austin-based non-profit label, Spaceflight Records.  The album features some of the best on the current Texas scene—the stunningly versatile Texas Gentlemen; Hunt’s fiancé Shakey Graves; and drummer McKenzie Smith, to name a few. 

Stephanie is also a member of Nancy And Beth, the punk/vaudeville heart-child led by her bandmate, musician, comedian and actor, Megan Mullally.  Megan and Stephanie pick dope songs and sing them while dancing and wearing matching costumes, with a backing band that includes Petra Haden, drummer Joe Berardi, and Austin musicians Datri Bean (keyboards) and Andrew Pressman (bass).   They’ve been described by The New York Times as having a “fearless take on live performance, and by Noel Gallagher as “definitely not bigger than The Beatles.”

Nancy And Beth also most certainly left a lot of newfound fans Googling the name “Stephanie Hunt.” What they would find is the c.v. of a musician and actress who is both still rising and already thoroughly accomplished. Hailing from Austin, Hunt grew up surrounded by music. Her father began gigging in New Orleans at age 12 and went on to study with classical guitar maestro Andrés Segovia; her sister is the critically lauded singer-songwriter Phoebe Hunt. Stephanie studied violin seriously throughout her childhood and began writing original music in high school. In her early 20s, she formed an experimental psych-rock band, the Ghost Songs, with Black Angels members Alex Maas and Christian Bland. Acting also came by way of music: She was cast as a young musician in the NBC TV hit Friday Night Lights in large part because she’d been practicing bass guitar. An enviable amount of work followed, from more era-defining TV (Fox’s Glee, Showtime’s Californication) to buzzed-about indie flicks (Somebody Up There Likes Me) and sitcoms for ABC and TBS.

All throughout her acting years, when she was based in Los Angeles, songwriting remained a refuge or a sanctuary—“a place to be able to actually consider how I felt about life rather than saying lines that people had written for me,” she says. With Buffalo Hunt and her continuing musical life back home in Austin, she’s giving voice to her own ideas and those of the fabulously creative friends that surround her.
