The Miners
The Miners
The Miners are an original alt country band based in Philadelphia, PA. Originally formed in
2007, The Miners are known for their country-infused, 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 a rotating cast of local pedal steel,
lap steel and electric guitar players.
The Miners debut six-song EP, Miner’s Rebellion, was released in November 2012 to critical
acclaim and notable airplay including a featured write-up on No Depression, inclusion (2X) on
Bill Frater’s legendary podcast, Freight Train Boogie, and praise from alt country/Americana
blogs both in the U.S. and overseas (UK & Netherlands) 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. The
Miners will begin working on their follow up full length album in November 2018.
The Miners live shows feature their originals plus a few tasty classic/alt country covers. The
Miners purposely limit their live shows to a half dozen or so per year at a variety of
Philadelphia’s top venues including World Café Live and MilkBoy Center City. For the past
four years, The Miners host a sold-out benefit at World Café Live (upstairs) raising money for
breast cancer charities.
