Melodic Miners

We are the Melodic Miners, a Brooklyn based band playing original Americana with a soulful sound steeped in the traditions of old time country, blues and folk. Our melodies are upbeat with foot-stomping rhythms and lyrics range from the poignant to the absurd. As public school educators, we live in the community, play to have fun and love to engage an audience. 

Brooklyn based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Lucas Rotman, has been performing, recording and writing songs both solo and with his band, for over 15 years now. 

The Miners include, Lucas on guitar, banjo, harmonica and vocals,the extraordinary Pauline David-Sax on violin and mandolin, Brewster Smith on drums and our newest member, the lovely Andrea Wilches on background vocals and percussion. Thanks for checking us out!
