About The Show

Rhett Miller II is the lead singer of the country rock band Old 97’s. He also records and performs as a solo musician and has been published as a writer of both fiction and non-fiction. This show will be an acoustic solo performance In 1993, Miller and childhood friend Murray Hammond formed Old 97’s as a three-piece acoustic act along with their Dallas neighbor guitarist Ken Bethea. They played as a three piece for six months before adding Philip Peeples who has remained the band’s drummer ever since. After a sold-out SXSW showcase in 1995, Old 97’s found themselves the subject of a major label bidding war with Elektra Records finally inking the band to a multi-album deal. From 2002 through 2018 Miller released seven solo CD.s while still releasing work by the Old 97’s. These included his 2006 release The Believer which included a duet with Rachel Yamagata on a song called Fireflies, and his 2012 release called The Dreamer which included collaborations with Roseanne Cash and Ben Kweller. In 2015, Miller released his sixth solo record, called The Traveler, on ATO Records. The album was recorded with a Portland, Oregon-based bluegrass band called Black Prairie, which includes members of The Decemberists and features contributions from Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey of R.E.M.and in 2018 he released his next solo effort The Messenger.
