Scott Miller’s had a successful solo career since leaving the V-Roys. He has released three consistently good records on Sugar Hill. He has worked with Patty Griffin, Tim O’Brien, and Jim Dickinson and he has toured the country religiousely for years.
All that hard work has led to releasing his new fan funded record on his own label. Of the five bands profiled this week on Songs:Illinois Scott Miller is the third to go this route. I’d call that a trend. His new record is titled For Crying Out Loud. Scott’s been known in the past for his humorous songs and I’m sure there are plenty on this record. But I’ve only heard this one song and it’s the last one on the record and closes it out with a whimper rather than a bang.
