Milhouse are rapidly building a reputation as one of the most eclectic bands to break the surface in years. With such a distinct and an energetic live show, Milhouse draws on a unique combination of instruments and influences to create a sound that is unclassifiable. While listening to Milhouse you will realize and come back to the beauty and art of music. It's the evolution of Bach to The Beatles.

What do you get when you combine an electric cello, electric mandolin, acoustic guitar, a homemade drum kit consisting of conga drums, snare drums, kick drum and various percussion? You get one eclectic mix of instruments whose melodies and grooves blend into an engaging ear-pleasing musical sensation called Milhouse. - George Street Observer.

Composed of four best friends Matt Herring, Dusty Painter, Cory Jarrett, and Lonnie Root this quartet manages to intertwine the evolution of classical music to the sounds of modern music with influences of My Morning Jacket, Keller Williams, The Blues Brothers to Jason Mraz and Damien Rice. With such broad influences and instruments not consistent to the rock music genre the creative efforts of the songs and arrangements becomes an influential strength to the eclectic sound.

With such broad influences and instruments not consistent to the rock music genre the creative efforts of the songs and arrangements becomes a driving force to the eclectic sound. Milhouse has shared the stage with many acts including: Tyler Ramsey, Zach Deputy, Outformation, Zac Brown Band, NeedtoBreathe, The Blue Dogs, Moses Mayfield, Scare Crow Collection, and Barefoot Manner.

On December 7 2005, Milhouse released their highly anticipated second album, which clamoring fans sent to number two on the home charts, filling the coveted slot behind Madonna. Milhouse sold an astonishing 1400 copies at local record store Millennium Music in Charleston. In January 2008, Milhouse entered Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville NC with respected producer Danny Kadar who is well recognized for his production and engineering for acts such as My Morning Jacket, Iggy Pop, Avett Brothers, and Arizona. The goal for the six track EP entitled "a collection of rare birds" was to produce a record that will capture the live and organic chemistry of eclectic quartet. . "We didn't hire studio musicians or add to or change our sound." Herring explains. "...in the end it was me, Dusty, Cory and Lonnie; the people in this band, creating the music we love." he adds confidently," It will always be the Milhouse family."
