We are the melodic miners, a Brooklyn based band playing original Americana with a soulful sound steeped in the traditions of old time country, blues and folk. Our melodies are upbeat with foot-stomping rhythms and the lyrics range from the poignant to the absurd. We are a group of public school educators who live in the community, play to have fun and know how to engage an audience.
Brooklyn based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Lucas Rotman, has been performing, recording and writing songs both solo and with his band, the Melodic Miners for over 8 years now. The Miners include, Lucas on guitar, banjo, harmonica and vocals,the extraordinary Pauline David-Sax on violin and mandolin, and our newest member, the lovely Andrea Wilches on vocals and percussion. Thanks for checking us out!
