Getting together in March of 2005 Milligram Smile features Jake: guitar/ vocals,Ryan: bass/vocals, and Steve: drums. Based out of a small town in Mid Michigan these three individuals stepped out of their local music enviroment by combining their many influences contrasting from Metal and Hardcore all the way to lighter mainstream music in writing and creating their own interpretation of heavy music.
Their music delivers a raw thick driving punch with dramatic, emotional highs and lows backed by a steady, solid, attention grabbing beat. The lyrics are about everyday emotions and display feelings that can be easily related to by others. These characteristics are displayed by their high-energy presence that they deliver on stage. This can be interpreted as them feeling the high and low points of their music to better get the message clearly presented and to show that you can still have fun while entertaining.
The intentions of Milligram Smile are straightforward and honest, with goals including playing live music, meeting new friends and new bands, traveling, and continually learning and developing musicianship and personal values. In wrapping this up the trio are on a mission to show music fans that you can rock with the best of them and have fun at it too. With a refreshed approach to the music, and the high energentic stage shows. They hope to catch the attention of music fans from all over.
We also are proud to announce that we recieved 2 awards at the 21st Annual Review Magazine Music Awards in 2006. The Review Magazine is a Mid-Michigan based magazine. The first award was for best Rock band of the year, and our cd Beautiful Scars and Memories was awarded the best cd of the year.
