The band specializes in a folk rock that’s rooted in Harvest-era Neil Young and provides a soothing balm that can bring you back from all of the anxiety that never fails to persist

Ladders is a 4-piece rock band from Milwaukee, WI. The group formed in 2014 around the spectral, wandering songwriting of Daniel Mitchell (formerly of the Honest Sleeves). An early version of the group consisted of Mitchell and guitarist James Sauer (also of Donovan The Shark). Currently accompanied by drummer Myles Coyne (also of Myles Coyne and the Rusty Nickel Band, Animals In Human Attire and Temple) and bassist Dan Oberbruner, Ladders' songs have increasingly incorporated classic rock, power pop, country and post rock influences. The group's first album, ""Suha,"" which features a contribution from Chris Porterfield of Field Report, will be released by the Bread King label on Oct. 30, 2014. Songs from the album have appeared on FM 102.1, 91.7 WMSE and The Milwaukee Record.
