MILES OVER MOUNTAINS
Miles Over Mountains is an acoustic Bluegrass / Roots / Americana band based in McHenry, IL. Their musical styles range from bluegrass, to rock, to folk, to reggae, to punk and beyond, all delivered in a “not-so-traditional” bluegrass voice. Their live shows are high energy, centered around their arsenal of original material and refreshing variety of cover songs interpreted in their own way.
Only in their first years as a band, Miles Over Mountains continue to turn heads across the nation as they’re momentum and touring schedule continue to grow. In 2014-2015 they’ve performed hundreds of shows at bars, clubs and festivals with no signs of slowing. Besides playing notable Chicago venues such as Cubby Bear, Martyr’s, Tonic Room and others, the band also held a weekly residency show at the Abbey Pub from May until October carrying on the longstanding local tradition of Bluegrass Tuesdays in the city.
The 2014 and 2015 festival seasons have seen M.O.M. performing at such fests as Shoe Fest, Down On The Farm, Jam for Jam Music Fest, Frankfort Bluegrass Fest, Byrd Fest, Blottopia, Summer Stomp and more, and sharing the bill with The Wood Brothers, Split Lip Rayfield, Sierra Hull, Blue Highway, Ben Miller Band and a host of national and regional acts. M.O.M. has been the opening act for such groups as Town Mountain, Henhouse Prowlers, Cornmeal, Ben Miller Band, The Big Wu, Family Groove Company and many other longtime staples of the music scene.
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 every time.

They have been and continue to be on the road and the stage constantly in support of this record, and can be seen this festival season at over a dozen fantastic Midwest music festivals~
