About Miles Over Mountains
Miles Over Mountains is an acoustic Bluegrass / Roots / Americana band based in McHenry, IL. Their musical styles range from bluegrass, to reggae, to punk, and beyond, all delivered in a “not-so-traditional” bluegrass way. Their live shows are high energy, centered around their arsenal of original material and refreshing variety of cover songs interpreted in their own way.
The members of M.O.M. all played together in another local bluegrass band for over a year, before reforming as a 4 piece band in early 2014. They played their first show under the name Miles Over Mountains on February 15, 2014 at their base camp town of McHenry, IL to an overwhelmingly packed house, a good omen of the things to come.
Collectively with decades of stage experience under their belts, M.O.M. strives to provide the audience with a fun and freeing experience at each show with unique sets each time. The band plans to enter the studio to record their debut album in September of 2014, after an increasingly rigorous and busy summer of festival performances and bar/club shows throughout the region. Keep an eye out for Miles Over Mountains playing at almost a dozen Midwest music festivals this season!
