What Made Milwaukee Famous has been a stalwart of the Austin music scene since their inception in 2003. Singer/Songwriter Michael Kingcaid has employed a diverse range of musicians in the past decade, priding the band on not being backed into any corners, stylistically. With the release of their first two records, Trying to Never Catch Up and What Doesn’t Kill Us on Seattle’s Barsuk imprint, the band was touted for their abilities to channel strong musicianship and diverse songwriting into instantly, addictive hooks. Their “elegant pop” (Billboard) has landed them on the bill at a number of the mammoth festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Sasquatch, SXSW and Lollapalooza, highlighted by a taping on PBS’s prestigious Austin City Limits with Franz Ferdinand. They have also shared the stage with the likes of Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, The National, Snow Patrol, The Walkmen, TV on the Radio, and the Pretenders to name a few; a testament to the band’s musical diversity and mutual respect with other artists in the industry.
THE BRETON SOUND
"Stand back somewhere on the main beams of a big log house and feel the music come up through your femurs, ho ho, and after that you can always say for sure, that you once knew what it was like to hear men play rock 'n' roll music." - Hunter S. Thompson

Down at La Seine today, ran across two girls singing, beautiful voices in harmony. I complimented them, and they asked if I played. We started talking and she asked if I knew "Wonderwall," which I did. We sat and sang together, two strangers, one from the US, one from Sweeden, bonding over a classic song by a British songwriter, singing by the rivers in France.
