The Milk Men is a band made up from the cream of British R’n’B talent and pedigree.
Bringing together members of the legendary Pirates, and British Blues Award-nominated the Mustangs, The Milk Men have been tearing up venues and festivals all over the UK with their dynamic, white hot versions of classic blues tunes, alongside unforgettable foot-stomping originals.
With former Pirate Mike Roberts on drums, Lloyd Green (son of r'n'b legend Mick Green) on bass guitar, husky blues singer Jamie Smy on vocals, the band is rounded off on guitar by Adam Norsworthy, singer and guitarist in the Mustangs.
The Milk Men’s sound has been called ‘ZZ/DC Feelgood” by some critics, who have lavished praise on the band’s dynamic live show and original songs. But the band draws its influences from all corners of the blues world, from early Rod Stewart , through classic Rolling Stones & Steely Dan, to the heavier blues leanings of ZZ Top and AC/DC.
In 2016 the band released its critically-acclaimed debut album FULL PHAT. Their brilliant second album GOLD TOP was released in March 2018 and reached Number 2 on the iTunes Blues Chart and the Amazon Blues Chart Top 10. Some reviews hailed it as the best British blues rock album in years.
In Spring 2020 the band released the hotly-anticipated DELIVERANCE, which reached 32 on the Amazon national Top 40 albums, 9 on their national rock album chart. The video for the album’s first single, Little Miss Attention, has now had more than 250,000 views. DELIVERANCE received rave reviews and has cemented the band’s reputation as the keepers of the classic British blues rock flame.
All three albums showcase the band’s songwriting talent for great riffs, catchy choruses and cheeky lyrics. Smy’s husky blues voice and Norsworthy’s bluesy melodic guitar lines build on the lithe, tight and punchy rhythm playing of Roberts and Green.
The band has earned itself a reputation as one of the very best live acts in the country with a dynamic, joyous live show that enthrals, energises and entertains in equal measure.

Little Miss Attention is the first single from DELIVERANCE, the hotly anticipated brand new album from THE MILK MEN, one of the UK's finest blues rock bands.
Released in Spring 2020 each track is played with huge amounts energy and melody with a large dose of fun thrown in. Incorporating all elements of Blues Rock, proving the great depth of styles they are able to produce for your delight. In fact talking of melody, if you don’t find yourself instantly nodding your head to this, then I suggest you have your pulse checked. Because this is some seriously infectious boogie rock that is impossible not to get into.
Production wise it is crisp and clear, letting all four members stand out but still blend together perfectly. It really is an album that cements their name in the a-list of bands that are the keepers of the future of R’n’B music. So if my thoughts have left you itching to hear more, then get on their website or your favourite outlet and order this, already classic album.
