With deep roots in funk, soul, classic rock, hip-hop, and blues, Nathan Miller's unique
style of slide guitar is steeped in the American roots tradition. Joined by his band Unstoppable Company they offer up "Hush", the official follow up to 2006's "Bombs and A Hustle."
"Hush" is a fiery blend of electric slide guitar riffs, heartbreak, and triumph. Written over a
three year period by Miller and recorded, mixed, and mastered at Creation Audio Studios by Miles Hanson, "Hush" is a 90 minute journey through the mind of a songwriter who shreds like Jimi Hendrix, croons like Sam Cooke, and gets down like P-Funk.
Miller's broad musical influences shine all throughout the record, breaking sonic ground on what a slide guitar and intense songwriting can do. The album opens with the track "Anxiety (You Got To Know)" stripped down to basics with slide guitar, vocals, and bombastic drums. It grabs you by the throat and never lets go. The album also delivers quieter, introspective songs like, "Y'lla A I'sd", down home grooves like the title track "Hush", and the country tinged "Forgettin' Gets This Good." "Hush" also gave Nathan Miller a chance to explore and show his deep love of Reggae music with the political tones of "Jah Say".
The disc features the talents of Minneapolis music's legends-in-the-making Andy Mark (Mayda, Mpls Dub Ensemble), Debra G (Copasetic, The New Congress, The Devine Collection), Alex Rossi (Root City, Feet Don't Fail Me Now), Corey Blanchard (Root City, The House Band), Alex Steele(Roster McCabe), Scott Muellenberg(Roster McCabe), and Innocent(Les Exodus). An all star cast of singers and musicians that proved to be the perfect collaborators for the project. The result is a perfectly crafted musical experience to match the energy and fun of a Nathan Miller live performance.
