Midnight Notion is a hard-hitting, head-banging riff-rock artist from the Twin Cities, MN, and possibly the loudest one-man-band around. Fueled by his rich imagination, multi-instrumentalist Bryce Kalal writes, performs, records, and produces each infectious hook himself.
Born of a single mother, Bryce has experienced the hardships of life in a broken family since Day 1. Often left home alone, he would keep himself occupied by way of pencil and paper. Over the years, his drawings became writings, and those writings became lyrics. By 9th Grade, he had saved up enough money for his first drum kit, and his first guitar came only months later. He poured every ounce of his free time into teaching himself how to play, dreaming of someday playing a sold-out stadium show.
The local independent music scene in the mid-2000s brought many performance opportunities for Bryce, but each time a new band would find their groove, the band would fall apart. Frustrated by always having to start over, he decided to focus his time and energy on a new project: his own.
In 2008, with nearly 100 unreleased original songs, and his first home studio setup, Bryce started from the beginning with The Archives: 1–10. Released on Christmas Day, The Archives brought to life the first ten songs he had ever written. 2013’s March to Midnight delivered the hit “I Feel Bad For You,” which has received radio airplay on 93X’s Loud & Local. In 2017, he turned to video with a short run of bi-weekly cover song music videos, and started The Somewhere in Dreamworld Podcast.
Now, the itch has returned, the record button has been armed, and the next original Midnight Notion release is just around the corner!
Everyone has dreams. Whether we remember them or not, what happens in our minds is often bizarre and illogical, but sometimes it can have an enormous impact on our waking lives. The Somewhere in Dreamworld Podcast is the podcast about all things dreams—both waking and sleeping. As host, Bryce Kalal discusses the wonder of the subconscious mind, and shares the stories behind each one he and the listeners can recall.
