The Milk Carton Kids

The Milk Carton Kids released their second album, "Prologue" for free online to over 60,000 fans. This dynamic folk duo is getting a lot of buzz and is made up of singer and guitarists Joe Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale who started playing music together in 2010.

Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale have a way of creating one voice out of two that evokes comparisons to The Jayhawks and makes their music all the more mesmerizing. Acoustic, soothing, and full of balladry, the signature Milk Carton Kids sound is nothing short of mesmerizing.
The Milk Carton Kids are nothing if not inspired. In fact, they were a World Cafe: Next artist just last September, and now they're back in studio with a full-length interview and performance on their latest, the aptly named "Prologue."

Given how "Prologue" was released for free online and downloaded by tens of thousands (including World Cafe's David Dye), it's little surprise that the album itself jives very well with the duo's live performance reputation. Full of balladry, perfectly blended harmonies, and summery synergy, "Prologue" is the focus of the session
