2017 release. Fiery roots-rock singer/songwriter Scott Miller presents Ladies Auxiliary, his first album in four years, via his own F.A.Y. Recordings. Raised on a cattle farm in Virginia, and well- versed in topics ranging from Greek mythology to modernist poetry, Miller's smart songwriting has long been admired by his peers. A founding member of Knoxville-based V-Roys, Miller's raucous style influenced the newer generation of Alt-Country revelry and what is now known as Americana. The album title is a tip of the hat to Miller's backing band for this recording: Bryn Davies (bass); Rayna Gilbert (fiddle / banjo); Jen Gunderman (keys); Deanie Richardson (fiddle); Megan Carchman (drums) and Anne McCue (guitar and producer). The results are another testament to Scott's uncanny ability to reach the listener with tuneful melodies wrapped around thoughtul lyrics and topical subject matter: Lo Siento, Spanishburg, WVA is an instant classic. And Epic Love kicks things off with an epic bang.
