Rhett Miller, Erin McKeown
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[POP MEETS AMERICANA] Rhett Miller, frontman of beloved alt-country guitar band the Old 97’s, continues to cut his own path through a solo career that’s stretched for more than 10 years now. His most recent release, 2012’s The Dreamer, marks the second release on his own label Maximum Sunshine Records, and the first he’s self-produced. The track list is full of songs laced with slide guitar and intricate acoustic chords, showcasing his Americana leanings more so than his previous solo releases. Miller’s an affable performer known for connecting with his audience and embodying the sincerity and spirit of his own lyrics. For those wanting to hear his whole catalog—from his dreamy first solo single, “Come Around,” back in 2002 up to the present—and maybe a dash of the Old 97’s, trust that he’s likely already anticipated such a desire and is ready to fulfill it.
