Tonight, we are on cloud nine to host the exclusive premiere for the 3rd single ‘Roll Right On‘ off Gus Miller‘s upcoming, debut, self titled EP;
The track is a first-rate “cosmic folk/americana” one, ‘heavily influenced by the outlaw and cosmic country sounds of the early 70’s‘, and its key strengths, are the warm, expressive Miller’s vocal tone, avoiding any kind of crescendos, and the laid-back atmosphere & vibes unleashed, transfering the listener to the notorious exploitation motorcycle movie “Easy Rider“, on a chill ride from New Orleans through the open country and desert lands.
A lot of free space to travel with eyes closed, in this gem, and in case you are tired of this “lockdown” era, or even want to feel like Wyatt (Peter Fonda), this one is the ultimate treat for you!
Heavily influenced by the Outlaw and Cosmic Country sounds of the early 70’s (Gram Parsons, Jerry Jeff Walker, Waylon Jennings), Austin Tx based Gus Miller’s alternative approach towards Country and Roots music is refreshingly authentic and raw. It shows conscious songwriting that shines with little effects/post-production, making for an organically warm sound that feels live.
Over the years, he’s had the opportunity to share bills with artists such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Wood Brothers, Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Them Damn Quails, Zac Wilkerson, Jackie Venson, Andrew W.K, James Steinle, Tenth Mountain Division, and many others. In 2017 he was a winning finalist in The Kerrville Folk Festival’s Songwriting Competition, earning himself a slot at the festival. The following year in 2018, while performing as frontman for the Americana group Light Horse Harry, he released the record “San Pedro” with the group, which saw regional success. Following the release, he and the group were awarded “Artist of the Month” by the Austin Music Foundation.
In Feb of 2020, Gus unveiled his solo project with the release of his debut single “Perfect Fool”. Followed up with his second single “Midnight Wind” in March of 2020. He has plans to release more music under his name and eventually hit the road as Covid-19 lets up. Follow Gus Miller on Spotify and Instagram to keep up with his latest work.
