Album Notes
The Milkman & Sons is a Brooklyn based band that pays homage to all the American Roots music of the past and specializes in Traditional Blues and Prohibition Jazz. They are known for their ability to take audiences in a musical time machine by playing the music of such varied notables as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Fats Waller,
Hoagy Carmichael and Little Walter, as well as original music written in a similar style.

While the band is always fronted by singer/songwriter, harmonica player and guitarist, Marcus (The Milkman) Milius he is accompanied by his ‘Sons’, a rotating cast of local musicians. The band usually performs as a trio but can expand to a sextet including drums or even adding horns. They developed their craft playing up to six nights a week at local bars, restaurants and events. Marcus has long backed up other musicians as a sideman, playing all over the US, Japan, Europe and Scandinavia. Now he’s ready to step out on his own.

This is first time The Milkman & Sons have done a professional quality studio album thanks to the assistance of producer/bassist Jeff Kerestes. Vocal, harmonica, guitar, bass and drum recording was all done live, in one day, in February 2018 at Atomic Sound in Redhook, Brooklyn. What you will hear is a more electric take on music of the past influenced by Tom Waits, Dr. John, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding and Hank Williams. In the tradition of break-up albums you will journey through songs of anger, confusion, regret, nostalgia pain and finally hope.
