MEET THE MILTONES

The Miltones are known as the masters of blending modern blues-rock sounds with the nostalgia of a vintage record collection. The Auckland five-piece have been turning heads with their powerful stage presence and moody melodies since forming in 2014.

After opening for Jamie Lawson and The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band in 2016 the band went to Lyttelton to record their self-titled debut album with Ben Edwards (Nadia Reid, Aldous Harding, Marlon Williams, Tami Neilson). The album reached incredible success, including scoring a review of 4.5/5 stars by New Zealand Listener and being labeled as “the freshest sound in New Zealand popular music right now” by the NZ Herald. Most notably The Miltones were recognised by Auckland Live at the 2018 Taite Music Awards and took home the Best Independent Debut Album award.

 

The band’s first nationwide tour wrapped up in late 2017 after up-sizing venues to accommodate ticket sales and a sold-out show at Auckland's Tuning Fork. This year saw continued success as lead singer Milly Tabak was selected to attend Folk Alliance International conference in Kansas City by the NZ Music Commission with Anika Moa.  It also marked the Miltones summer festival debut with a massive double slot at the lauded WOMAD festival in Taranaki drawing over 3000 people to their performance which left attendees wanting more and emptying the merch table. Other notable performances were opening for The Teskey Brothers New Zealand Tour and supporting Tami Neilson on her five-stop tour.

 

This summer the Miltones are excited to play music festivals and continue work on their much anticipated sophomore album. 

The band consists of Milly Tabak, vocals and guitar, Liam Pratt, guitar, Guy Harrison on keys (Hollie Smith), Chris Marshall on bass (Miss June) and Tom Broome on drums (Esther Stephen & The Means, Hollie Smith)
