Published May 22, 2015California duo the Milk Carton Kids has developed an admirable reputation in the folk music world as a result of their debut, Grammy-nominated LP, The Ash & Clay, in 2014. Following this release, the pair have further showcased their raw acoustic talents on their newest full-length, Monterey, which was recorded onstage before their live performances.
During their visit to Toronto, we shot a special session with singer-guitarists Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan for Exclaim! TV. Their "Secrets of the Stars," performed here, exhibits a warmth that goes hand-in-hand with The Great Hall's pre-existing rustic atmosphere.
Employing a simple setup of two acoustic guitars and a microphone, the duo sing effortlessly beautiful harmonies that instantly put you in a calm state of mind.
