“John Miller is a traditional country singer; there are no gimmicks and no newfangled twists. If he can be dubbed alternative these days it’s because he cleaves to the verities, sure in the power and emotion of his own voice, and happy to make it’s setting the music of the honky-tonk, the western swing band, and the original Opry.
Consequently he’s the purest country singer practising his art on these islands, and the finest.”
