)-- Momma Lynn Management (MLM) announces Seattle Hardcore Rock band, MILLHOUS, has joined the Momma Lynn family of companies in an effort to lead the resurgence of the Pacific Northwest Hardcore Music Scene.
MLM Founder and CEO, Michael Decker says, "We are excited to announce that MILLHOUS has joined our family. We look forward to working with them to bring their special brand of Pacific Northwest Hardcore to the forefront of the Hardcore Music Scene."
MILLHOUS, is comprised of veteran musicians and performers: Singer, Ian "Pelon" McNamara, Lead Guitar, Travis Kerr, Bass Guitar, Christopher Lomba, Rhythm Guitar, Edward "Zoli" Semanate, and Drummer, Barry "Vinnie Thunders" Oliva Jr.
Founding MILLHOUS member, McNamara, was the original bass player in what was then a 3-piece band back in the early 90's. He has since opted to sing for the band. "I grew up a hippie redneck in the Santa Cruz mountainsides and was a roadie for my mother's Country & Western band - Myra & The Good-Guys," said McNamara. "I've been on my own and living in the Pacific Northwest since I was 16 years old. We've been playing our version of Grunge meets Punk Hardcore for over 20 years. I want to put a charge into the people who see us. It's in my blood, and I wouldn't change a thing!"
Guitarist Kerr says, "I was born in Scotland. My Dad was into The Sonics, the Fabulous Wailers, and The Kingsmen so I just got hooked on Rock and Roll. We moved to the States when I was 7 years old and that is when I picked up my first guitar. Later on when Punk was starting to evolve, I started listening to the Ramones, Clash, and The Stooges. After I moved to the Northwest, I really got into the So Cal punk stuff like CH 3, Black Flag, and Circle Jerks. I started playing in MILLHOUS back in the early 90's with Ian and the rest is history."
Bass player Lomba recollects, "I have always felt a connection to music. My Mom was an aspiring dancer in her youth and was really into soul, r-n-b, anything with a beat. I can remember seeing 'punk rock' stuff on a TV show called Real People and thinking it was pretty cool. The first time I heard the Misfits “Horror Business” I was hooked, as if it was an anthem written for my personal angst. I plan to play until I can’t, which is when the dirt hits my coffin!"
Rhythm Guitarist Semanate says, "I walked past a music store in Lynnwood, Washington at the age of 15, and there was a dude playing Judas Priest on a guitar. That's when it clicked. That could be me rocking out. I bought that Explorer he was playing for $150 and the rest is history."
Drummer Oliva started beating on pots and pans when he was 5 years old and remembers. "I got a toy drum set when I was 7 years old and my first real kit when I was 11. I taught myself to play drums by playing along with my favorite bands like Kiss, Cheap Trick, AC/DC, and Rush. My first Seattle band was PVC, they forced me to learn that N.O.F.X. Style beat and that lead me to MILLHOUS."
