“These guys are what I call Country and Westies born in bred in West Auckland, their music is wholesome and raucous Milly is like Steve Nicks on Janis Joplin’s drugs” – Rodney Fisher, Musician (Goodshirt)
“While Milly is from West of Auckland she has star-power of a Nashville cast-member who’s got lost in the backstreets of Lyttelton.” – Nick Atkinson, Musician (Hopetoun Brown)
Auckland band, The Miltones (please note – just the one “L”) are releasing their first ever-commercial single, Wildfire, on Feb 10th, 2017 and to celebrate will be sharing the new music video and playing a very special gig on the same evening! Wildfire was recorded in the magical walls of The Sitting Room in Lyttleton with Ben Edwards (Aldous Harding, Marlon Williams, Nadia Reid).

The music video was shot at the Tabak family farm in one of the remaining run down glasshouses where the unkemptness and wild weeds references the story behind the song. Wildfire is Milly’s tribute to the supportive selfless strength of some very big hearted women that surrounded Milly and her family after the loss of Milly’s father and helped keep the family business afloat in their time of grief. Milly says “This video was something I needed to do to honour pay tribute to their beautiful hearts.”

The mesmerizing voice of Milly Tabak will be familiar to thousands of concertgoers to last year’s shows of The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band whom they supported.
Milly serves as The Miltones front-woman, with the supportive chops and solos of lead guitarist, Liam Pratt. Together the pair have been playing music together since their teenage years, and now form the songwriting core within the band. The group is completed with: Guy Harrison on keys (Hollie Smith), Chris Marshall on bass (Miss June) and Tom Broome on drums (Esther Stephen & The Means, Hollie Smith).
