Don Middlebrook is a Florida Trop Rock, Americana, Country, Rock ‘n Roll singer/songwriter from the frozen North. East Lansing, Michigan is ground zero. He travels a circuit from Michigan to Key West – Seattle to the East coast. Original Florida swamp rock, with authentic country sensibilities, give Don a heart of pure Trop Rock.
Don Middlebrook revels in the back roads, small towns and the seedy underbelly of the Florida Keys — although he is equally at home in the country clubs of southern California, baseball stadiums of the Mid-west, and Yacht Clubs of the east coast. Don is a sought-after entertainer. From corporate America to private house parties, he writes songs that celebrate the people, places and uniqueness of this great country.
Don Middlebrook and The Pearl Divers is fronted by Don Middlebrook who has been a professional recording and performing artist since 1993. Don is the real deal! His voice has an authentic sound that expresses the soulfulness he injects into his songwriting. The Trop Rock Music Association justly awarded him “Songwriter of the Year” in 2015. His albums, The Key West Connection and Songs from Talespin Bay, were given the honor of “Album of the Year” and runner up for the same award. He is backed by an equally experienced band of road warriors. All of whom have been plying their trade in the trenches and the pinnacles of the profession.
Don Middlebrook writes songs about life. The people, the places, the weather, and the tabloid stereotypes provide rich fodder to draw from when he writes. His uncanney abliity to write that “extra verse” or even a full lenth song for folks in the audience — at the spur of the moment — separate him from any artist you have ever experienced! Don delivers the songs in a compelling and deliberate manner that is authentic and intimate all at once.
