Cosmic, literate folk rock, with poetic songwriting and passionate performance — the Milagro Saints brew soulful and funky Americana, with melodies reminiscent of The Band, lyrics in the heritage of Woody Guthrie, Dylan or Neil Young, and live shows in the legacy of the Dead or Traffic. Like classic 70s folk and rock the music combines pop hooks with the sublime, speaking to the ecology, issues and spirit of the times. “Signs on the Road”, released this Spring, paints pictures – natural, mystical, plaintive, or realist, that resonate in music and message.
Frontman and songwriter Stephen Ineson hails from Sheffield, England, and after touring the U.S. opening for They Might Be Giants met Lee Kirby and Joyce Bowden in New York City where they formed the Milagro Saints. They soon moved to North Carolina and have flourished with albums, originally on Moodfood Records (Whiskeytown), and now on Moon Caravan Records, with wide airplay and recognition on the Roots and Americana charts.
