Local songwriter with sensual, elastic and thick with rich colors. A gorgeous place to live.
THE LIGHTNING BUG SITUATION
CD release party for the Lightning Bug Situation, the nom de plume of Brian Miller (aka one half of the Speakers and sometimes guitarist for Jolie Holland and Sean Hayes). "The Lightning Bug Situation crafts artful pop, mixing standard guitars, bass, drums, drum machines, piano, and keyboards with musical saw, accordion, concertina, clarinet, french horn, and banjo. The sound is distinctive and intimate." --NPR's Open Mic
THE VISION OF A DYING WORLD-
"Peppier and busier than [Iron & Wine] material, the songs are closer to Sufjan
Stevens' busy compositions and nearly as masterful as Black Heart Procession when it comes to off-kilter vocals that sound not quite of this earth."
--San Diego City Beat
