MINTO is a five piece rock band with shout out harmonies with toe tapping pace. MINTO is not afraid to take risks when they laid it on the line recording their up coming release with engineer Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago. Founding members Kalvin, Evret and Ryan started out simply. They played a few shows here and there opening up for some friends. At this time known as The Smokes. Then with the additions of Jimi and Suzy, the band grew some legs and left the primordial swamp to start playing bigger shows and venues to ever enthused crowds. Their first album entitled "fields and factory floors" was independently released June 2006 to a welcome response from both press and fans. After three years there sound has evolved and after much debate they have decided to change there name to MINTO. So, out of the ashes of the Smokes, came MINTO, a band with the same song writing mentality of The Smokes, but more Rock and Roll then Alt Country. Known for there high energy shows, honest lyrics and catchy melodies, the fire underneath MINTO is getting stoked and starting to blaze.
