MAGIC CARAVAN and THE ALCHEMIST...BRILLIANT SONGS.
"Magic Caravan (new version)" is excellent - full of invention and originality. Exciting and engrossing.
David Namerow (Congas/Hand Percussion) (2015)
Golden Gloves is a superbly sweet kickass groove that is deceptively simple. layered clean and sharp. and Let's Start A Party's funky percussion adds just the right spice to this acoustically flavored groove that really rings my bell...and The Alchemist beautifully cruises the edge of a Dead groove . Such a deft variety of grooves, lyrically masterful, rhythmically blended for tightly satisfying tapestries. Magic Caravan

The Fire Next Time
November 20 2011
The vocals and guitar on "The Fire Next Time" are both unbelievable!
Bill Bentley A&R Director at Vanguard Records
“It’s a hard world to get a break in/all the good things have been taken.” Those lines from the Animals’ ‘60s hit “We Gotta Get Out of this Place” are even truer today for rock & rollers who try to grab a piece of the sunshine for their moment in the spotlight. Even when they’re as talented as Ben Miller, it’s still a constant struggle to find an audience for your music. Illinoisan Miller, like so many others like him, does it the only way he can: by making his own recordings and releasing them himself, and then doing everything he’s able short of grand larceny to build an audience. Luckily for him, he’s got the kind of talent that will someday take him to higher ground. His guitar playing holds the key. It’s razor-sharp and full of a peculiar twists that not many others have been able to master. Mark Knopfler comes to mind, but Ben Miller is no copycat. He uses that style as a jumping off point, and then builds his own vocabulary of licks and lyricism to make an original stand. Vocally, it’s the same way. There may be similarities to others, but on songs like “Angel in My Dreams” and “Elevation,” there is a serious musician here, and you can feel all the passion that fuels a likely lonesome run for recognition. But, really, it’s always been that way, and in the end the making of the music has to be the final reward, because it’s the only one the artist has any control over. From the sound of Alakazam, this is a man who has no intention of going anywhere but straight ahead. — 11/12/2009 by Bill Bentley/Sonic Boomers
