A recent development in the folk music scene was witnessed in 2011 with the emergence of an Indie folk duo based in a village called Eagle Rock, in California. It was none other than The Milk Carton Kids. The duo that comprises of singers and guitarists Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan, presented a whole new dimension to the age old art form. The two are compared to the likes of the Everly Brothers, Simon & Garfunkel and Gillian Welch & David Rawlings. Their music reflects and carries forward the legacy of American folk while retaining its modern charm. The depth and appeal of their music is universal. It cannot be confined to boundaries. From the fields of the north, the forests of the south to the deserts of Texas and the mountains of Appalachia, Milk Carton Kids music carries the distinctive elements of every corner of the country.
After their unsuccessful endeavors as solo artists, Ryan and Pattengale formed a musical duo amongst themselves. In early 2011, a live record by the two was released by the name of ‘Retrospect’. At that time they had not come up with a band name. The musicians’ first release under the title ‘The Milk Carton Kids’ was ‘Prologue’. The single from this album called ‘There by your side’ was named as Song of the Day on National Public Radio. Grammy winner Sara Bareilles praised the band’s compositions on her Twitter account. The compliment by the piano pop star further increased the popularity and fan base of the band, particularly within the realm of Indie music.
The duo adopted a unique and unconventional approach of promoting their music. They offered free downloads of both their albums on their official website. As a result of this advertising technique, by the end of their debut year, they had witnessed more than sixty thousand album downloads.
Formed only a couple of years ago the duo has already headlined several shows. They have toured and shared the stage with the Punch Brothers, Lumineers, Old Crow Medicine Show and KD Lang. They have also appeared in concert series of NPR’S Tiny Desk. Other than their magnificent musical acts, The Milk Carton Kids performance is loved for their deadpan on-stage humor.
With their inventive guitar lines and intricately interwoven vocals, the duo produces compositions that are simple and clear to the ears while extraordinary in appeal. In a genre which already has many big names, the duo has carved its niche with their timeless music. The chemistry shared by the two is commendable. Both complement and balance each other’s performance in a way that seems subtle and almost effortless. Their music is rich in tradition yet not antiquated. In other words, it respectfully follows the venerable values of traditional folk, while keeping an approach that is purely authentic in nature. In doing so, they have certainly succeeded unlike many of their contemporaries.
