Miller’s fourth studio album, entitled “Delayed” it ironically refers to the process of “Chasing that elusive tone in my head” and finding it in his custom built Jeff Traugott acoustic guitar. “I wasn’t going to record this album until the tone was perfect. It was a long process to find the sound, but meeting Jeff Traugott at the Montreal Guitar Festival was a pinnacle moment in that search. Of course then I had to find the perfect studio, microphones, preamps and the quest continued!”
Containing 13 original compositions, performed solo on one acoustic guitar, the album is an intricate journey of groove, precision and incredible tone. “I wanted to make something unique, an acoustic guitar album you could turn up loud and dance to! I really slaved over these songs, re-arranging and re-writing - even including a couple I’d recorded before. They’re inspired by many things - travels to America & Afghanistan, occupational hazards (‘Carpal Tunnel Syndrome‘), and one was actually written during my wedding speech!”
