Chris Milam had a bad year.

Following a broken engagement, Milam lost everything but what he could fit in his car. Then, while on tour, that car—and everything in it—was stolen. Milam found himself with only a bag of clothes and a stack of questions: what happens when your plans fail? Where do you go when your future disappears?

Chris Milam went to the studio with a dozen new songs that tackle these questions and define his sound. He emerges after months of recording with an eagerly-anticipated new album: Kids These Days (out April 7 on Namesake Records).

For the project, Milam teamed up with Memphis producer Toby Vest [High/Low Recording, Memphis TN]. To fund the recording, Milam spent a year without a home–couch-surfing, pet-sitting, troubadouring—saving for studio time rather than rent. He called in Memphis musicians Greg Faison (drums), Pete Matthews (bass), Luke White (guitar), Jana Misener (cello) Krista Wroten (violin), and Vest (keys, effects) to illustrate the tension, loneliness, and loss in each song.
A totally refreshing artist for our times and one of the most eclectic singers and songwriters of not only the mexican music scene. Also an amazing singer with great carisma and delightful musical creativity, Larisa can bring you from a sad song to a powerful dance beat.

She has shared the stage with famous local and international artists such as Paco Rentería, Mon Laferte, The Guadaloops, Javier Bátiz, Los Músicos de José, among others.
