It took me some time to come to the realization that Miller's third and strongest recording to date is the perfect road disc.

What finally led me to this was that When It's All Gone, You Come Back was in my car player for well over two months! (Thank goodness Dave doesn't press deadlines at FAME). Other discs had come and gone but Miller's breezy informality with the hard truths of our shared experience rode with me faithfully through the rain, snow, sleet, and hail of another New York winter. Yup, God and Miller have been my co-co-pilots for a while now.

Be it the bluesy playfulness of Buckle To Burn through the folksy, roots oriented reflections and illuminations—Blame It On The Sky, All The Way Down, It Was Billie, Figure It Out and Love's Not Crazy ("Love's just out there doin' what love's gotta do")—Miller's catchy mix of styles keeps the heart and mind engaged for all those miles they need to travel.

  • Buckle To Burn
  • Blame The Sky
