The Miners

The Miners with The Bill Hangley Band and  After The Rodeo

The Miners are an original alt country band based in Philadelphia, PA (yes, there are alt country bands in Philly). Originally formed in 2007 out of the ashes of Keith Marlowe and Andy Shahan’s late 80’s Philly-based band Tornado 5, The Miners are known for their country-infused, guitar and pedal steel guitar laden, alt country originals influenced by the likes of Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, Whiskeytown, the Jayhawks, Gram Parsons, and Buck Owens. Co-founded by Keith Marlowe, the current line-up of Marlowe (lead vocals, guitar), Shahan (drums, vocals), and David Thornburgh (pedal steel and lap steel guitars) has been together since 2009. Sean Benge replaced Scott Donnini on bass in late 2012.

The Miners debut release, Miner’s Rebellion, a six-song EP, was released in November 2012 to critical acclaim and notable airplay. The Miners received a featured write-up on alt country/Americana’s most prominent website, No Depression, and were featured on Bill Frater’s legendary podcast, Freight Train Boogie. The release has drawn (and continues to draw) praise from alt country/Americana blogs both in the U.S. and overseas being noted for it’s excellent song writing and straight-up pedal-steel infused alt country sound while drawing comparisons to the likes of Gram Parsons, Green on Red, the Jayhawks and others. Miners’ Rebellion is currently receiving airplay on alt country/Americana radio programs in the U.S. and overseas including Chapel Hill, NC’s Wrecking Ball Radio (title track hit #1 on their weekly playlist in March 2013), Verona, VA’s Radio Free Americana (EP reached #11 on their weekly top-200) in February 2013), Indianapolis, IN’s Redbud Radio show and the Songriver show out of the Netherlands.
