With his latest album The Dreamer – released last week on his label Maximum Sunshine Records – Rhett Miller surely showed us one thing: he’s a man who knows what he wants and how to get it. With guest appearances by singers Rosanne Cash and Rachael Yamagata, as well as additional percussion by Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel), this is one record you don’t want to miss.
The Dreamer is Miller‘s sixth solo record and represents the first time he has ever self-produced. In the past, Miller’s solo efforts were dramatically different from his work with Old 97′s. Their songs often steeped in Americana and country and the solo records were decidedly more rock and pop affairs. Now The Dreamer finds the Texas-bred, New York-based singer/songwriter marrying his two worlds like never before.
