Their story began nearly 30 years ago when two brothers began acquiring musical influences from far and wide, generating their own sound in the family attic. Over time, tastes and talents percolated separately as Tom drove the beat for Chicago acts Zapruder Point, Pens, and The Boy with Perpetual Nervousness and John developed a reputation as a solo cover performer throughout central North Carolina. In 2008, they both found themselves back in their home state of Ohio -- Tom in Cincinnati and John in Columbus. It wouldn't be long before they entertained the notion of rekindling the sounds of that attic once again.
At a Millard Bros. show, you'll hear a couple of voices, a guitar or two, inventive percussion, and a harmonica. No tricks, no loops, no AutoTune. You might be asked to sing or play as well. The crowd drives the set list, and requests are always welcome.
