For Your Consideration
‘UnDeadwood: Chapter I Soundtrack’
Best Contemporary Instrumental Album
Jason Charles Miller
When my friends Brian W. Foster and Max James at Critical Role asked me to write the music for their new streaming series UnDeadwood, upon hearing the name I had a feeling what it might be like, but when I was told, “It’s about gunslingers fighting zombies in the Old West, I think you were born to make the music for this show.” I was IN!
I jumped in with both feet, and luckily I was able to call on the incredible skills of violinist Aubrey Richmond and multi-instrumentalist Adam Hall to help me round out what became uniquely the ‘UnDeadwood sound.’ With the meticulous and passionate expertise of Stewart Cararas doing the mixing and mastering, I couldn’t be prouder to have this be considered for a Grammy nomination. – Jason Charles Miller

– Billy Ray Cyrus
“Jason is such a talented writer and performer. His new album will probably kick a hole in Nashville.”
– Charlie Starr (Blackberry Smoke)

– Reeves Gabrels (The Cure, David Bowie Band)
“Jason takes the live show and then turns the crank up a notch or two. It’s something to see!”
– Tonya Campos (105.1 Go Country, Los Angeles)
“Jason Charles Miller is a cutting edge rock/country/blues artist of these times! Great vocalist/musician/writer. In other words, “don’t come a knockin’ if you’re not prepared for country rockin!”
– Rickey Medlocke (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
An accomplished performer with more than two decades of professional experience as a singer, songwriter, producer and voice actor, Jason Charles Miller has quietly established himself as a veteran presence in Americana, country and Southern rock.
Released in 2018 by Sony Music, ‘In The Wasteland’ was Jason’’s third full-length solo release and featured guest appearances including Rickey Medlocke (Lynyrd Skynyrd), Charlie Starr(Blackberry Smoke) and Dug Pinnick (King’s X). The album expanded on Jason’s roots in Americana and country, dynamically exposing his blues-inspired and Southern rock influences.

In 2019, Jason was lead vocalist on the Billboard chart-topping theme song for the ‘Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers’ video game. He has also contributed two songs to the critically acclaimed 'Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ soundtrack, and has even sang backup for Robert Smith of The Cure on the Reeves Gabrels/Robert Smith track “Yesterday’s Gone.”
Jason is the on-camera host of the Webby award-nominated show ‘Starter Kit’ on Geek & Sundry, teaching celebrities how to play tabletop role playing games. He also appears as a host and on-air personality on streaming channels including Dungeons & Dragons, Nerdist, Hyper
RPG, The Young Turks and College Humor.
You can also see Miller on-screen in the SyFy original movie ‘Battle Planet,’ in ‘Chatroom of Solitude’ on Stan Lee’s World of Heroes network, playing himself in season 5 of ‘The Guild,’ and squabbling with Lewis Black and Andy Dick in various productions on Comedy Central. As a voice actor, Jason has hundreds of animated and video game credits (see highlights below) and has even narrated a film for NASA.
Widely recognized as the frontman and founder of the rock band Godhead, he was the only artist ever signed to Marilyn Manson’s Posthuman Records, and sold more than 250,000 albums touring the world with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Rammstein, Disturbed, Linkin Park, Slipknot, Marilyn Manson and Korn frontman Jonathan Davis.
In 2004, Jason penned the all-star collaboration "Forever In Our Hearts," a song to benefit the victims of the 2004 tsunami in South Asia which included Brian McKnight, Mya, Jacoby Shaddix [Papa Roach], Nate Dogg and many more.
