Fragile Rock consists of five puppets, six puppeteers, 3 musicians, two roadies and a band therapist. Fragile Rock is the brainchild of Brently Heilbron and the product of the creative soup that is Austin, TX. Teaming with puppet designer Shaun Branigan and video director Jessica Gardner, the band has recently earned festival buzz at SXSW 2017 and just released their NPR Tiny Desk Concert, spreading the puppet pain.

Milo S. - vocals

Milo S. is everything we want in a lead singer: temperamental, hyper-emotional and constantly breaking up the band. His longest solo career lasted for 46 hours.

Nic Hole cut her teeth in the vibrant musical scene of Omaha before relocating to Austin, Tx. She is a fierce supporter of women in the arts and has no time for the man-baby ways of Milo. Although they briefly dated, she is now happily dating actor Elijah Wood, confirmed in this video.

Kyle Danko is the founding member of the band and auditioning guitarist of emo puppet band Fragile Rock. He's just trying to keep it all together and his moody guitar licks don't betray his cheery nature.
