Milton, the New York-native singer-songwriter, is poised for a major breakthrough with the album he and his band recently recorded in Minneapolis with Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams, Iris Dement, Greg Brown) and engineer Tom Tucker (Prince, Lucinda Williams, Mavis Staples). The album, GRAND HOTEL, which he is celebrating the debut of at two nights at Joe's Pub in NYC (June 17, 18) , features all new material, including some of the songs that crowds have come to know and sing along to in sold-out shows in NYC. The album also builds upon the momentum of airplay on key radio stations, such as WFUV in New York and KCRW in Los Angeles.
In a lead review of Milton’s eponymous last album for the Sunday New York Daily News, Jim Farber called Milton “Paradise Found.” While he has been compared to many of his heroes—Van Morrison, Warren Zevon, Nick Lowe, The Band—Milton has distinguished himself with his unique voice and a compelling mix of grit and grammar. Milton has been aptly described as a writer’s writer; he’s extraordinarily capable of elegantly simple narratives about the complex wonders of life in the city and in the world.
