Biography

Pop stardom has, for many years, attuned listeners to the arrival of shining new faces filled with vital new ideas, to which attention must be paid. Instantly. Briefly, for the most part. It says here that there is another path, at least if what one cares about is music, and not celebrity. The steady lines in Buddy Miller’s face, the passions which abide within his voice, and the ...

Product Description

Amazon.com

Buddy Miller, whose self-titled album with wife Julie won Album of the Year honors at the inaugural Americana Awards show in 2002, has been quietly changing Nashville with his gutbucket work as a songwriter, vocalist, sideman, and producer. His albums have served as an anchoring consciousness for country's roots, while his raw, twangy songs, filled with palpable heartache, have made their way into mainstream fare by the likes of the Dixie Chicks and Lee Ann Womack. Midnight and Lonesome may be his widest-ranging work (packing stunning original songs between covers of the Everly Brothers, Jesse Winchester, and Percy Mayfield), and also his best. With Emmylou Harris on board for a chilling rendition of Winchester's "A Showman's Life," and Womack dueting on Julie's achingly beautiful "I Can't Get over You," Miller proves himself the most pained and soulful honky-tonker since Gram Parsons. Positively killer. --Alanna Nash

While his name may not immediately spring to mind when one mentions country music, Buddy Miller is without question one of the most talented musicians in the business. Combining traditional country music, Americana, and the nostalgia of early rock and roll, Miller's bluesy voice and astonishing guitar skills have won him recognition as one of alternative country music's premiere artists.
Folk music fans may remember Miller from his Grammy nominated album with wife Julie, Buddy and Julie Miller. On his latest CD, Miller's vast range of talents is proven once again. From the moment the opening chords of the Everly Brothers classic "The Price of Love" kick off the CD, it is immediately apparent that Midnight and Lonesome is not just the work of a musician, but of a true artist. Songs like the beautiful "I Can't Get Over You" and the title track demonstrate the heartache that comes from failed relationships, while the catchy guitar licks of "Water When the Well is Dry" and the rockin' "When It Comes to You" require the listener to at least tap his toes and even bust a few moves if necessary. "A Showman's Life," penned by folk/rock luminary Jesse Winchester, exposes a soulful, honest side of Miller's music with a tribute to the hardships of the music business. The album's closing track, "Quecreek," is a stunning tribute to the nine men who nearly died after being trapped in a Pennsylvania mine last July and shows Miller's ability to pen emotional numbers that can easily be placed in a social context.
If you like artists who possess sheer skill and musical talent, Midnight and Lonesome is the album for you. Buy a copy today and help give recognition to an extraordinary musician whose work has been unknown far too long.

BUDDY MILLER MIDNIGHT AND LONESOME
This record (and to quote Buddy's fellow Nashville troubadour Kevin Welch, "yes folks they're still records") constitutes a double landmark in contemporary American music. It signifies the best work of the best damn "country" musician and singer going around at the moment, and it places Buddy Miller on the verge of admission to the pantheon of contemporary country soul greats.
This exclusive club has few members, but all have earned their place through years of hard work, producing generous music of grace, gravity, humour, heart and a kick-[hiney] backbeat.
Buddy Miller is right up there with them, and can proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle (yes, Steve Earle, the one who had the guts to record "John Walker's Blues").
Interviewed last year here in Australia, Harris said "Buddy's amazing, he knows about everyone and everything". She referred to Miller as "the guy they call". Miller, in typically self-effacing fashion promptly denied this, but of course they do call him, and call him often. His work both as a performer, musician, producer and writer has become the standard for those aspiring to excellence in the genre.
The record again demonstrates Miller's impeccable taste in material and collaborators. In addition to his own outstanding work, he utilises some of today's elite contemporary songwriters including his precious Julie, Jim Lauderdale, and Jesse Winchester.
Julie's title track "Midnight and Lonesome" is yet another of her spirited rock thumpers, propelled by Bryan Owings big, big drums, and Larry Campbell's supple fiddle.

I pre-ordered this on the strength of his previous records, and while I was waiting for it to arrive, my wife and I saw Buddy Miller perform in Sydney. In understated style Buddy just walked onstage and got straight down to business with his enthusiastic drummer & bass player, (often jamming with them halfway through or at the end of a song) - his guitar playing was brilliant and his singing - 100% heart and soul finished off with twist of twang. His commitment and musical integrity were clear. This was one concert worth the 5 hour trip from our hometown to see.
The new record, 'Midnight and Lonesome' is a gem. Highlights abound: 'The Price Of Love', with Julie Miller - the best cover of this tune I've ever heard, the Hank Williams influenced 'Wild Card', 'I Can't Get Over You' a country tearjerker with Lee Ann Womack, the aching folk rock 'Midnight and Lonesome', a JJ Cale styled 'When It Comes To You', the exhilarating Bob Dylan/Neil Young influenced rocker 'Water When The Well Runs Dry", a cover of Jesse Winchester's 'A Showman's Life' with Emmylou Harris, the stompin' 'Litty Bitty Kiss', a cajun styled 'Oh Fait Pitti D'Amour' & the uplifting 'Quecreek' with Julie Miller.
As usual Buddy crosses a few genres here, but his music is firmly rooted in heartache 'n' honkytonk.
Buddy Miller's cd's never fail to move me - and the outstanding 'Midnight and Lonesome' tops my list of essentials for 2002.

Format: Audio CD
Miller's fourth solo album for Hightone features the same canny mix of originals and covers as his previous three, along with the harmonies and songwriting of his wife, Julie. But as fine as their new songs are, the tracks that really give away the duo's roots are the covers. This time out, the Millers cover The Everly Brothers, Percy Mayfield and Jesse Winchester. The effortlessness of this combination of country, folk, blues and rock is as impressive as ever.
The Millers recast The Everlys' "The Price of Love" with swampy reverb-growling guitar and husband and wife harmonies more pointed than the originals. Percy Mayfield's 1950 R&B classic, "Please Send Me Someone to Love" is a perfect match for Miller's soulful delivery, supported by a beautifully balanced organ and acoustic-guitar arrangement. Similarly, Miller draws on the emotional depth of Jesse Winchester's pained first-person examination of life on the road, "A Showman's Life." The latter, an older album cut, shows off not only Buddy Miller's ability to cover a song, but his golden ears for picking material.
The eight new songs, written mostly by Buddy & Julie (or Julie solo), range from twangy details of love's reforming effects ("Wild Card"), to devastating, clinging memories of love lost ("I Can't Get Over You," featuring a duet vocal from Lee Ann Womack). "Midnight and Lonesome" distills the Millers' mountain influences, while the same fiddle-driven sound finds happier times on "Little Bitty Kiss." Fats Kaplin's accordion sparks the Cajun-style on "Oh Fait Pitie D'amour."
While the breadth of musical ground the Millers cover draws a map similar to their previous outings, the result retains the same high level of vitality and freshness.
