Born out of the tight knit and rising Folk music scene of Binghamton NY, the band Milkweed has been drawing crowds and critical acclaim through their second year of full time touring. Their unique shows stand apart from the norm with the raised platform and attention to lyrics and their depth of three part harmonies. While both whimsical and melancholy, Milkweeds music bridges the gaps between genres, combining storytelling with poetry, flat picking with Piedmont blues, and gospel with some hints of rock and roll.
Through great dynamics the band can produce fragile spellbinding moments, and then create a full sound far surpassing the expected limits of a trio. With the release of their first full length album, Dream of an American Family, recorded by the great Don Sternaker (Railroad Earth, From Good Homes, Peter Gabriel, Blues Traveler) and mastered by the legendary Gene Paul (John Prine, Nora Jones, Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack) Milkweed is on the list of ‘must sees’ and ‘bands to watch for’. Comprised of Peter Lister, Jacqueline Colombo, and Joseph Alston, Milkweed can be seen and heard at the many great listening rooms and theaters in the Northeast and beyond.
“Milkweed is a first class band. These guys have got it. Their ensemble playing is thoughtful; it actually has parts like chamber music, and dynamics. Some folks don’t know about dynamics. And great songs as well!”
– Mark Morganstern, owner of the legendary Rosendale Cafe
“The albums thirteen tracks blend tight bluegrass harmonies with smart lyrics and earworm melodies.”
– Chris Kocher, Press and Sun News
