Armande Milhouse has been writing lyrics, poetry and singing since he was a child in the choir at the church in which his mother was the Deaconess. After her passing in November of 1988 he found a refuge in music that had otherwise escaped him. Many people close to him have given him a name which has stayed with him through the years. Milz is short for his last name Milhouse and since then he has grown to be known as Audio McSwagger, a front for a collaborative effort between himself and a five-piece band of artists from Rhode Island and Boston.
Their sound is unique unto itself due to the blend of genres from which all the band members hail. The bass, rhythm guitarist and keyboard player all come from various forms of rock backgrounds while Milz, the lead guitarist and the drummer all come from various hip hop and R and B backgrounds. This fusion has been attempted before with little to no success but through a unique chemistry of friendship and love for all forms of music the marriage they have created sounds and seems to be effortless and natural.
Lend an ear or come to a show and listen to the influences as they range from Jimmi Hendrix to the Rolling Stones all the way through Tupac and Weezer (whom the band actually does a cover for). I dare say that unique is a term that does this group no justice.
