JASON CHARLES MILLER TO RELEASE “LAST TO GO HOME” OCT. 27
5-Song EP embraces Americana/ alt-country / singer-songwriter roots
Jason Charles Miller, lead singer of the rock band Godhead, will issue his first solo album on October 27th. Titled “Last To Go Home,” the five-song EP will be released on his own label, Count Mecha Music, and retail on iTunes and most major digital outlets for only $4.95.
A departure from his work at the helm of industrial-rock innovators Godhead, “Last To Go Home” introduces a softer side to Miller’s personality, one where he unplugs his soul on songs that are carried by nothing more than evocative vocals and stripped-down acoustics.
Featuring guest performances by Motown legend Brenda Lee Eager [Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder] and classical concert cellist Tina Guo, “Last To Go Home” showcases Jason Charles Miller as he’s never been heard before.
Drawing on influences including Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson, the five original songs are written and produced by Miller, and blur the lines between Americana, alt-country, singer-songwriters and folk music.
To hear two songs from the EP, please visit Miller’s MySpace page: www.myspace.com/jasoncharlesmillermusic.
