Milo Greene is a self-described cinematic indie pop band that formed in Los Angeles, California.[1] Milo Greene is a quartet, with three lead singers. Band members Robbie Arnett, Graham Fink, and Marlana Sheetz share lead and backing vocal duties, often switching instruments during performances with Curtis Marrero on percussion.[2]

History[edit]

The band described their sound to Lauren Moraski of CBS News by explaining, "'Originally when we started this band we wanted to create music that we could potentially see being placed in movies and TV,' said singer/multi-instrumentalist Sheetz."[3]

Milo Greene is the name of a fictitious booking agent, a persona created by the band to help them get gigs in the early days of playing shows. The band decided to keep the name of their fictitious booking agent for the group.[4]

Control (2015)[edit]

On September 30, 2014, Milo Greene announced that their second album, Control would be released on January 27, 2015.[5] The band described the new album's tone as a departure from the more folk-based sounds of their previous work, and instead more upbeat and percussive.[6]

Adult Contemporary (2018)[edit]

The band released third album titled Adult Contemporary on September 7, 2018. The lead single "Move" was released in May.
