Listen to Teach Me How To Stay

Malford Milligan’s powerful, raspy voice and riveting stage presence have drawn comparisons to such soul icons as Otis Redding and Al Green. With his nationally acclaimed band Storyville, he recorded 3 CDs for Atlantic Records and November Records. He has performed on Austin City Limits twice with Storyville, and once with Eric Johnson. Malford Milligan has also appeared on the Conan O'Brian show and has toured and appeared with Bonnie Raitt, BB King, James Cotton, Edgar Winter, Double Trouble, Kenny Wayne Shepard and many others. Malford has recorded on more than 30 albums with such artists as, Hal Ketchum, Marcia Ball, Doyle Bramhall, Alejandro Escovedo, Sue Foley, Stephen Bruton, Chris Smither, Eric Johnson, Double Trouble, The Boneshakers, and Toni Price.

Now working with his new band featuring legendary Austin bass player Yoggie Musgrove along with keyboard wizard Phil Redmond, guitar slinger Carter Arrington, and powerhouse drummer Tiny Watkins, Malford’s already powerful reputation is growing exponentially.

"Best Male Vocalist of the Decade"
~Austin Chronicle

"Malford Milligan may be the next great soul singer...his tenor resonance and barking delivery invite comparisons with Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, and when he's onstage you can't take your eyes off him!!!”
