Read more about the album and check out the new music video for "Raincoat" (featuring Sam Cohen) below.
Milk Jennings was born on a llama farm in Washington State. He spent his childhood playing D&D in the basement and baling hay until he turned 18 and moved east to NYC. He spent 10 transformative years there working as a musician and visual artist before moving to Chicago for two years, and then landing in Seattle in 2021. His debut solo record titled “Sleep Talker” (written in-part in all three cities), born out of a weekly demos project inspired by Japanese Breakfast’s “June” demos, was produced/mixed by acclaimed producer Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Alexandra Savior, Danger Mouse, etc.).
The record is described by Jennings as “impulsive, spontaneous, and uninhibited. Full of childhood memories, adult anxieties, and love - all told in a very nonlinear fashion”. Additional instrumentation includes flute by acclaimed flutist and saxophonist Cochemea Gastelum (Beck, St. Vincent, The Roots, etc.) and backup vocals by Brianna Leary. The record is inspired by an eclectic mix of decades and modern indie rock - from 60’s Psych-Rock and The Velvet Underground, to 70’s soft rock like Dan Fogelberg and Bread, to modern acts such as Andy Shauf, Rostam, and Sam Evian.
