Heath Milton, Bass
Heath Milton has been playing music for the past 20 years. It all started off in the sleepy village of Longview, WA where Heath was born. Around the age of 15 he started taking guitar lessons in the sleepier village of San Jose, CA. In the earlier years, only Metallica, Megadeth, and Primus were acceptable bands to learn music from. Then, he got older and realized there were TONS of other genres out there worth listening to. Some other inspirations are Oingo Boingo, Gogol Bordello, and People Corrupting People (PCP).
In his lower 20’s he started to attend Berklee College of Music which opened his eyes to jazz and maybe one or two other genres. Like many who attended Berklee, he quickly dropped out, started working for an airline, and traveled the world. This allowed joining an Irish cover band, called The Humble Hooligans, which toured up and down California and out to Hawaii.
He enjoys making new music in a lot of different styles from gypsy folk punk to pop to heavy rock with weird jazz voicing and odd time signatures. Currently he’s working on an eclectic EP that should be released in the summer of 2029!
