(Los Angeles, CA) Set to be the most definitive album of his career, JASON CHARLES MILLER is thrilled to share news on his upcoming record “In The Wasteland”, due out via RED MUSIC/ SONY on June 15, 2018.
Mastered and produced by Grammy Award-winner Matt Hyde (Jonny Lang, No Doubt, Deftones) and featuring drummer Kenny Aronoff (John Mellenamp, John Fogerty) , “In The Wasteland” showcases 11 tracks that blur the line between Southern Rock, classic country, and the outlaw attitude that has earmarked MILLER’s ‘Renaissance man-esque’ career as a songwriter, producer, performer and go-to guest performer that has spanned more than two decades and over a dozen releases.
“From the many different styles of music that have influenced me over the years, to the lyrics that are a mixture of observational storytelling and pure emotional ferocity – some songs are collaborations or even duets, and others were written alone in a darkened room” exclaims MILLER, “If you’ve followed the journey of my career as an entertainer, you’ll hear every place I’ve been, and where I ended up today. I’ve released a lot of music in the last few years for a lot of various projects – other artists, video games, TV shows, musicals and films – but this is my first solo album in six years… you can bet I’ve got a lot to say!”
“In The Wasteland” also includes guest appearances from the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Rickey Medlocke and keyboardist Peter Keys, legendary Soul vocalist Brenda Lee Eager (Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Diana Ross), Blackberry Smoke vocalist Charlie Starr, King’s X frontman Dug Pinnick, guitarist Duane Betts (son of founding Allman Brothers guitarist Dickey Betts), guitarist Adam Shoenfeld (Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean) and ‘Cowboy’ Eddie Long (Jamey Johnson).
MILLER adds, “To be able to collaborate with so many of my heroes on this album is completely surreal, totally mind-blowing and incredibly humbling, all at the same time. If I were to put a dream list of musicians together to play with, every single person on this record would be on that list. This truly is an all-star team of players, singers and stars that I somehow tricked into showing up to the studio… then, while they weren’t looking, I hit the record button! In all seriousness, each and every performance helps elevate the album to a level that I could never achieve alone, and I’m grateful to every single person who helped me bring In The Wasteland to life.”
