Middle Cyclone was produced by Case with Darryl Neudorf and features Case backed by her touring band - guitarist Paul Rigby, bassist Tom V Ray, vocalist Kelly Hogan, multi-instrumentalist Jon Rauhouse and drummer Barry Mirochnick.

Numerous guests on the album included members of Los Lobos, the Sadies, the Lilys and the New Pornographers.
