Believe everything you read. See Spilled Milk live!

This power trio prides itself on its' live show. Hoyt stakes his claim on stage, as McCall and Peer keep the pop rave-ups steady and furious.

Feeling liberated and confident with the current rhythm section, Hoyt is sounding unfailingly melodic and energetic, with echos of Tom Petty, Pete Townshend, and Jack White. His autobiographical lyrics about turmoil, dissatisfaction and redemption can be heard in the anthemic choruses and raps that are trademarks of the bands songwriting.

Caked from head to toe in Beatlesque song structures, melodies and harmonies, Spilled Milk is capable of both soul-bearing expression and ironic detachment. The songs are simple and direct while the powderkeg live shows are satisfying and compelling.

Spilled Milk proves that new music, done smartly can, indeed sound classic, yet neoteric.
