The Miners
The Miners
The Miners are an original alt country band based in Philadelphia, PA (yes, there are alt country bands in Philly). Originally formed in 2007, The Miners are known for their country-infused, guitar and pedal steel guitar laden, alt country originals influenced by the likes of Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, Gram Parsons, and Merle Haggard. Co-founded by Keith Marlowe (lead vocals, acoustic and electric guitar), the current line-up also includes Gregg Hiestand (bass), Vaughn Shinkus (drums, backing vocals) and Jim Hartman (lap steel, electric and pedal steel guitar, backing vocals).

The Miners debut six-song EP, Miner’s Rebellion, was released in November 2012 to critical acclaim and notable airplay. The Miners received a featured write-up on No Depression and were featured twice on Bill Frater’s legendary podcast, Freight Train Boogie. Miners’ Rebellion has drawn praise from alt country/Americana blogs both in the U.S. and overseas where it was named a Top-10 release for 2013 by Adobe & Teardrops, was chosen as the #1 Debut Release of 2013 by the blog Popa’s Tunes, and a Best of 2013 by UK radio show Standing in the Shadows of Lev.

Miners’ Rebellion has received airplay on alt country/Americana radio programs in the U.S. and overseas including Wrecking Ball Radio (Chapel Hill, NC; #1 on weekly playlist in March 2013), Radio Free Americana (Verona, VA; #11 on their weekly top-200 artists in February 2013), Redbud Radio Show (Indianapolis, IN), Roots, Rock Review (Z88.9 NJ), The Kitchen Party (WPMG Portland, ME), American Roots and Standing in the Shadows of Lev in the UK, and the Songriver Show and Radio Girl Show out of the Netherlands.
