The Milk Carton Kids have earned quite the moniker for themselves as far as folk duos go.
Beginning with their record Prologue in 2011, The Milk Carton Kids have toured extensively, often seen with at least one Martin acoustic guitar. Kenneth Pattengale’s love for small-bodied mahogany Martin guitars has been a hallmark of their sound and has resulted with a great relationship with the Martin Custom Shop, collaborating closely with the design process and development of his custom instruments and a special signature model. Joey Ryan has also joined the Martin club with the addition of a DSS-17 dreadnought to his collection.
Along with their Martins, and coupled with hypnotic vocal harmonies and masterfully written songs and arrangements, Joey and Kenneth have built quite the following as The Milk Carton Kids.
