Milagro Saints



MILAGRO SAINTS have just finished a NEW ALBUM  "SIGNS ON THE ROAD" released on Moon Caravan Records March 2018.

Milagro Saints. based in Raleigh NC, are a genre-defying, Americana/Blues and Folk-Rock band of unstoppable multi-instrumentalists. Featuring trombone, fiddle, accordion/organ, blues harp, mandolin, lap steel on top of a bedrock of bass, drums and electric guitars, playing original songs by lead singer/guitarist (and Englishman) SD Ineson.

The Saints’ sound is inspired by late 60’s and early seventies music which gave birth to the current Americana movement. The Woodstock-era essence of The Band, Dylan, Van Morrison and Neil Young, evolving into bands, like Wilco, Calexico, Hiss Golden Messenger and Deep Dark Woods and Ryan Adams’ Whiskeytown. Essentially the Saints’ music is based on a foundation of well crafted song-writing that honors the roots and authenticity of albums like ‘Harvest’ ’Music From The Big Pink’ and “American Beauty’

The band toured nationally in 2017 and finished an East Coast trip playing a special outdoor event in beautiful Sparta NJ and the celebrated Sidewalk Cafe in NYC. There were also live broadcast radio shows in Charlottesville,  WTJU 91.1 FM and WRIR Richmond VA. The band played EarthDay at Raleigh City Farm and several other outdoor summer shows in the Triangle including Bynum Front Porch, Weaver St. Carrboro and Fletcher Park in Raleigh. Historically the the band has played Woody Guthrie Fest in Okemah OK,   a Jack Kerouac celebration in his home town of Lowell Mass,  Donna The Buffalo's Shakori Hills Fest in NC and various established venue/clubs.

Milagro Saints “STRANGER TIMES” (2016) kicked off by the hard driving harmonica blues rock “SHADOW MAN” (2016) album has a strong sense of protest and is somewhat angry in response to the current political and environmental climate changes. Lead singer/songwriter/guitarist SD Ineson’s major influence is Dylan - so it seems appropriate for the band to engage the reality of the times a’changin’.  These issues turned into the initial writing for the album and musically came out of SD Ineson experimenting with blues guitar ‘open’ tunings-which also led to the relentless riffs propelling Shadow Man, Rail Rider and Further Along added to that was guitarist Roberto Morales discovering a 1951 Magnatone lap steel guitar and mashing the hell out of it for his solos.The majority of the album was recorded very spontaneously and live with the whole band playing together in the same room and several of the lead vocals are first takes.

 "Tupelo" (2015) which picked up significant Americana radio play for its lead single "American Radio" and "Mighty Road Songs" (2013) an EP of Woody Guthrie songs recorded in roots/rock Americana versions to celebrate The Saints playing the WoodyFest in Okemah OK that year. The EP charted at AMA top 50.

"Chance & Circumstance" (2011) started off the run of albums gaining U.S. and Europe-wide radioplay
