91.9 WFPK presents
SCOTT MILLER with Rayna Gellart and special guest

Feisty, funny singer/guitar-slinger SCOTT MILLER is not a simple study. His songs and albums have always possessed a strong sense of place and no wonder: He was raised on a working farm in rural Virginia by his parents, a WWII generation couple that carried on the Spartan lifestyle of their Scots-Irish forefathers. Miller has described the lifestyle as “Amish that drink.” In 1990, Miller left the family farm and moved to Knoxville, TN, where he founded the much-lauded honky-tonk alt-punk band The V-Roys, the first band signed to Steve Earle’s E-Squared indie label and released a number of highly acclaimed records. When the band broke up (reunion shows notwithstanding), Miller released four solo albums for the highly respected Sugar Hill label, and then founded his own (F.A.Y. Recordings). Enter the fiercely individualistic phase of a veteran artist’s career.“Owning your own record company is not as glamorous as the olden days,” he notes, “but with more money I can buy me some glamorous shit. But seriously, owning this record is not about making more money - it’s about keeping more money.” Miller now tours solo and with his band, Scott Miller and the Commonwealth. In 2012 he released an EP with old-time fiddle maven Rayna Gellert titled CoDependents. The 5-song collection of Miller's rootsy songwriting, enhanced with Gellert's beautiful fiddle, viola and backing vocals, is a perfect blend of both of their styles. They met at Mountain Stage in West Virginia only two years ago, becoming instant friends and collaborators and it shows - they sound as though they've performed together for years.Theirs is that kind of hand-in-glove fit, and a perfect one for a return trip to this intimate room.
