Feeling a bit camera shy


Imagine Radiohead singing Bob Dylan…
Think Pearl Jam performing Elliot Smith…
What if the achingly beautiful melodies of Nick Drake rose above a whisper?

Hailing from Burlington, VT, Milton made his stage debut at the Advance Music Acoustic Guitar Summit in the fall 2002, where he took the top prize. The incredible crowd response to Milton's performance during the final round made the decision clear even before the judges announced the winner. Milton has spent several years honing his craft while a few of his alter egos played the part of lead singer/rock star in several local bands. When the last of these bands called it quits in early 2002, he returned to concentrating on his own material, recording a collection of songs during the summer with former band mate David Simpson.

Milton's music explores themes of love, work, loss, happiness, fear, and forgiveness with clarity and humor, all wrapped in a voice capable of soaring tenor passages, growling baritones, and everything in between. In the course of a few songs he can go from the falsettos of Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees” to a Paul Robeson-like bass for “Ol’ Man River”. The aforementioned recordings became Milton's first EP, “The Road to Sprinkler City”, which was released in late 2002. The title is based on David Brooks' essay "Patio Man and the Sprawl People" and the songs focus on work and growing up - from the wonder of new life (work) in “Welcome Child” to resignation and unfulfillment in the song “Gravity”.
