Based out of Austin, Texas, the proclaimed "live music capitol of the world," Gus Miller is making a name for himself in the Alternative Country scene. His unique style, "a laid back Outlaw Hippie Country vibe, rooted in place and attitude" as described by LA On Lock, draws influence from the Cosmic Country sounds of the early 70's (Gram Parsons, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker). "[His style] really flows in the flavour of some tight vintage outlaw country," Independent Music Review wrote, while a recent interview with Music Mecca praises Gus' music as "reminiscent of country classics from eras of the past".
At 30years young, Miller has had the opportunity to share bills with big names like Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Wood Brothers, Jason Boland and many more. Some of his accolades include being a winning finalist in the Kerrville Folk Festival's university song writing competition and being named "Artist of the Month' by Austin Music Foundation, both of which he achieved while earning his degree at The University of Texas in Austin.
Miller's debut EP, released in November 2020, has been well-received by fans and critics alike. With a full-length record on the horizon, recording set to begin June of 2023, it's clear that Gus Miller Band is poised for big things in the years to come.
With a sound that's both authentic and timeless, Gus Miller Band is quickly making a name for themselves as one of the most promising acts in the American Roots music scene. Whether you're a die-hard country fan or simply appreciate good music, Gus Miller Band is definitely a group to keep your eyes (and ears) on.
