"Reminiscent of country classics from eras of the past, Miller simultaneously succeeds in creating space for new story lines and conversations. Miller has shown cohesive versatility in sound and perspective. Smoky, soulful vocals, intricately multi-faceted in interpretation, yet all the while vivid and conversational"

"If you miss the golden days of Willie Nelson, you should add Gus Miller to your rotation. His song has that honky tonk spirit with meaningful lyricism. Heck, even his unconventional vocal style is a bit like Willie’s own signature. The combination all comes together for something really fun and exciting. The vibe got my attention"
At 27 years young, Austin Texas based songwriter and band leader Gus Miller is making a dent in the Alt-Country scene. Heavily influenced by the Outlaw and Cosmic Country sounds of the early 70’s (Gram Parsons, Jerry Jeff Walker, Waylon Jennings), his alternative approach towards Country and Roots music is energetic, honest, and raw: conscience songwriting that emphasizes meaningful lyricism and musical proficiency.
Over the years, he’s had the opportunity to share bills with artists such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Wood Brothers, Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Them Damn Quails, Zac Wilkerson, Jackie Venson, Andrew W.K, Tenth Mountain Division, and many others. Miller's accolades include being a winning finalist in the Kerrville Folk Festival's 2017 university song writing competition, and also being named "Artist of the Month" by Austin Music Foundation in Jan of 2018 for his work with Light Horse Harry.
In Feb of 2020, Gus unveiled his solo project with the release his debut single “Perfect Fool”. In the following months he released subsequent singles ("Midnight Wind" "Roll Right On") leading up to the release of his debut, self-tilted EP on 11/12/2020. He plans to get back into the studio this winter for a full length album, and hopefully COVID will be a thing of the past and tour dates can be established. Until then, follow Gus Miller on Spotify, Instagram, and Facebook to keep up with the latest.
