Scott Miller / Press

“Scott Miller celebrates Big Big World, as diverse a set as he’s ever accomplished. It skirts Neil Young, Sixties bluegrass, and the Saharan sounds of the Tuareg with cool adventurousness.”

Jim Calijuiri - Austin Chronicle

“Big Big World is a restless album, boasting some of Miller's tightest songs… the writing is leaner (and) the album's sound is much bigger than his previous recordings”

“There was the Saturday night performance by Scott Miller at 3rd and Lindsley where we reaffirmed our friendship (he’s the only guy I met who’s so damned affectionate he’ll kiss you on the cheek, guy friends included) and where I reaffirmed my belief that he’s one of the most literate, savvy and amazingly talented singer/songwriters of the new millennium. (Don’t scoff. He is!)”

“Miller collaborated with guitarist/producer Doug Lancio on songs that dip in the creek of Southern pop as well as Lancio’s passion for Toureg style guitar from North Africa. The ice-pick accurate lyrics are all there of course, investigating big big topics as the title suggests. It opens with a prayer for redemption and insight (How Am I Ever Going to Be Me?”) and ends with a final resting place (Goin’ Home). In between are loads of wise searching, colorful chords and chiming guitar-scapes enriching it all. It’s exceptional.”

“Scott Miller tells stories better than most novelists. His intuitive lyrics hide universal heartbreak behind humor. His empathy is unsurpassed. He bestows dignity on dirt, elevates our pettiest concerns to poetry. He makes himself and everyman when he is anything but. A single listen reveals how Miller is exceptional, with a delivery so piercing and true you hardly notice how thoroughly you've been shot through. See him sing live once, and you'll never feel lonely again.”

“CoDependents - Scott Miller and Rayna Gellert. While Scott Miller works on a new full-length album, he took time to record five songs with fiddler/viola player/vocalist Rayna Gellert. If it's a warm-up, it may be the warm-up to Miller's best album yet. These five tracks are among Miller's finest work. The EP achieves an intimacy that Miller has rarely captured on an album. It's unself-consciously modest and natural. Gellert's stringwork is a perfect complement to Miller's vocals and guitar, and nothing more is needed. In fact, anything else might dilute the power of the songs. ”

“One of Virginia’s best exports, Scott Miller’s been very busy since his last Austin visit. He just issued CoDependents with North Carolina fiddler Rayna Gellert, an excellent collection of his Southern tales that, on the whole, are both sharply satirical and vividly told. –”

Jim Caliguiri - Austin Chronicle

“10 Unforgettable Moments from Cayamo. You realize how spoiled you are on the boat when the songwriters in the round features Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Scott Miller, Allison Moorer and Dar Williams. With each performer getting just three songs each, it was Scott Miller who surprisingly made the biggest impact on me and others in the crowd”

“Listen to this album filled with hooks, catchy licks, powerful rocking chords and radio friendly tunes... Miller just seems to have an innate gift for melodic songs and the rock 'n' roll vibe”

"The most solid Americana record I've heard in quite some time.
