Only 19 years old, and even with a little scruff under his chain, Blake Miller can’t hide. Oh, he can try to hide, but when he starts playing that pained and fractured, lo-fi American folk music, he becomes impossible to ignore. Try on this tune, “Summer She’s Hiding,” and you’ll hear the genuine voice of someone much older and wiser (and much more talented) than his years would suggest.
MP3: Blake Miller – Summer She’s Hiding
Together with Cats, Blake Miller’s home recording debut, is out now on Cleveland’s own Exit Stencil Recordings. You can expect a proper studio album on Exit Stencil by the end of 2007.
