In the early days, Mike played bass while Jan sang lead and played guitar. They could often be found kicking around the Boston music scene. They received airplay on several of the city’s radio stations and were nominated for a Boston Music Award in 2001. They have shared the stage with The Black Crowes, Corey Glover, Fuel, Feeder, and Hum as well as playing the Boston leg of The Vans Warped Tour. Their songs are on numerous compilations alongside the likes of G. Love and Special Sauce, Jack Johnson, Burning Spear, and The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones. Their music has been licensed to television shows on ABC, VH1, MTV, ESPN, and ESPN 2.

Mike and Jan bought land in rural Vermont in 2003 and started building their home, doing most of the work themselves. This is where the humble seeds of The Milkhouse Heaters were planted. Mike bought an acoustic guitar, and began writing Americana songs. With Jan on bass, they honed their sound and played their first show as The Milkhouse Heaters in 2010.

Mike and Jan have added several notches to their musical belt, including closing for Billy Bragg as part of a WOOL Black Sheep Radio fundraiser and opening for Fred Eaglesmith at The Shoulder to the Plough concert, which benefitted the farmers devastated by Hurricane Irene. Two of their songs are featured on The Shoulder to the Plough CD, which was recorded live at the Rockingham Meeting House in 2011.
Since then, The Milkhouse Heaters have been playing nearly every weekend around New England and were invited to play the 14th Annual Roots on the River Festival.
