“Red Rocks is hallowed ground sonically, historically, and spiritually,” remarked Miller. “It’s well above my own fighting weight to get to perform on that stage, but I’m grateful to Tyler for sharing the night with us – it was an incredible experience.“
Miller’s stunning debut album Depreciated, released last summer, is a meditation on his time growing up in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, and reflects on his relationship with his childhood home and the way things diminish over time.
Praise for Depreciated:
“Haunting and compelling.” – Rolling Stone
“And much like the great troubadours of the late 20th century, Miller has a world-class talent for sprinkling in subtle moments of profound truth and beauty throughout his story-rich, slice-of-American-life lyricism.” – American Songwriter
“Miller has a gift for writing immersive songs that listeners can live inside, inspired by the places that shape us — and more often, the places we can’t go back to, hard as we may try.” – Nashville Scene
“No matter how dark the journey that brought him to Depreciated, the songs are filled with hope and wonder, set against a folks-blues, Nashville countrypolitan and swamp-rock backdrop.” – Spin
“Hailing from the rural panhandle of West Virginia, singer-songwriter John R. Miller is one of the most fascinating and captivating artists in recent memory…What Miller does is what any perceptive, chiseled songwriter worth their weight in salt does — putting forth songs that speak, honestly and directly, to the human condition, to offer solidarity and sense of calm in an uncertain era we’re all trying to navigate to best of our best abilities.” – Smoky Mountain News
