The Milky Way is a band, but also a philosophy and mythology. We're based in Los Angeles and have been performing together in and around the city since 2009. We have accomplished quite a bit in our time, from appearing in a national Toyota ad, to throwing our own residencies and sharing stages with many of our heroes. We are also proud of our alumni, remarkable musicians and DJs who have all gone on to be influential all across the world. But perhaps what we are most proud of is our unique and singular sound. It is driven and expansive, but focused. We are unapologetically anchored in hip-hop, but learned students of all music, and dead set on being as entertaining as possible. Our influences all blend together in an unmistakably milky way, with spiritual messages and cosmic vitality at the core. Our live show is epic, purposeful, and ceremonial. We've recently released a compilation of songs created during our incubation period, called Vapor Trails: A Retrospective and are looking to release our first EP, "Shiva The Destroyer" in 2018.
