“The Jeremy Miller Band should be more popular with Texas radio than Miller Lite at a Dallas Cowboys game. They have crafted a deeply personal, rockin' Texas country album that should be on the shelf of any person who calls himself a Red Dirt fan. "Way Too Fast" is way too good to be overlooked.” - CountryChart.com
Formed in 2006, the Jeremy Miller Band is Austin’s latest and most intriguing contribution to a booming Red Dirt scene. The native Texas quartet belts out a raw, gritty, uncompromising blend of pure country and power rock, placing them in the same tier as contemporaries Cross Canadian Ragweed, Randy Rogers, Reckless Kelly, Brandon Rhyder, Roger Creager, Bleu Edmondson and even Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Steered by the band’s namesake, singer/songwriter/guitarist and industry, newcomer Jeremy Miller leads with a throaty yet soulful voice, lyrics both introspective and straight-forward, and solid, accessible songs. Bassist Seth Tobin accentuates the southern vibe with precise, tasteful and moving bass lines. Sonny Bihl's work on lead guitar features hard-hitting riffs and jaw-dropping solos that rival any guitar slinger, in any genre. Veteran talent Dave Ng adds his all-in approach to drumming, giving the band a decidedly edgy feel and sound. With an energetic and spontaneous live show, the Jeremy Miller Band is a force to be reckoned with in the Red Dirt scene.
JMB is a regular to the Southwestern region, playing over 100 shows a year, including performances at notable Austin venues Momo’s, The Nutty Brown and La Zona Rosa, as well as top notch clubs like The Executive Surf Club (Corpus Christi), Adair’s (Dallas) and Longhorn’s (Manhattan, Kansas). 2009 was highlighted by a selection to open for Grammy winning Asleep at the Wheel in their own hometown.
“Cut from the same cloth as Red Dirt rockers like Reckless Kelley and Cory Morrow, The Jeremy Miller Band comes out of the gate like seasoned veterans with Way Too Fast. It really is amazing to know this is their self-released freshman effort… There isn’t a song I don’t like between the 10 tracks. They’ve got that Red Dirt sound down well, Miller’s voice is just the right tinge of whiskey stained and his lyrics are framed within the country/rock/jam music played by guitarist Sonny Bihl and bassist Seth Tobin.” – Sean Claes, Insite Magazine
In August 2009, the band released their debut album, Way Too Fast, to critical acclaim. Produced by Texas guitar legend Keith Davis (Bonnie Bishop, The Scott Wiggins Band, Barnhill), and recorded at the Zone Studios in Dripping Springs (Ray Wylie Hubbard, the Flatlanders, Robert Earl Keen, The Dixie Chicks), the Jeremy Miller Band has crafted a solid release of heartfelt ballads, swinging two-steppers and no-holds-barred rockers. Highlighted by the eponymous single, Way Too Fast, that will put you on that Texas highway with your windows down and your radio up.
