Milkweed is a band that was born on Main Street in the quiet post industrial city of Binghamton NY. It is the collaboration of three artists – Joseph Alston, Jacqualine Colombo and Peter Lister. Without committing to one genre Milkweed has pulled from all the great aspects of American music and created their own brand of American song and story telling. Whether it is blue grass guitar flat picking, Chicago blues harmonica, or Jersey shore folk songs, Milkweed weaves together the sounds that make up the rich tapestry of American music history. With their lyrics they set themselves apart from the norm, taking the simple stories of everyday people and telling them through the lens of dreams and what it means to be a human. And the root of the bands sound is in the use of three part harmony to impart a sense of importance and depth to their lyrics that brings the listener into their songs and feel invested in it.
