Mineral Hill was formed in 2017 in Albuquerque to bring light to a dark world in the form of salty Americana. Lauren Addario plays drums & percussion and Bronson Elliott and Jonathan Mack play accordion, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and ukulele. but not at the same time. We’re like Tom Waits and his weird sister meets The Dead South.
Here’s what people are saying about our music!
