Chris Milam’s Kids These Days (2017) debuted in the iTunes Top 40 amid critical acclaim. The album’s stunning poetry, infectious melodies, and innovative sonic landscape earned the Memphis artist a wider audience and rapturous reviews.

Now, after a year on the road, Chris Milam’s back in his favorite place (Memphis), doing his favorite thing (writing new songs). With the next album in mind–and pen in hand–Milam’s 2019 performances will offer a sneak peek at what this acclaimed songwriter has in store.
