Rhett Miller – The Dreamer

January 01, 1970

(Maximum Sunshine)





You’ve can almost hear the final minutes of a band ticking
down when the key member puts out a solo record. But 10 years and five albums
since Old 97’s frontman Rhett Miller released his solo debut, he’s still
managed to keep his day job with the alt-country favorites.


With The Dreamer,
Miller’s one-man offering, little has changed. He still offers a breezy, but
challenging mix of pop and folk rock songs. Self-produced by Miller, there is a
fantastic duet with Rosanne Cash (“As Close as I Came to Being Right”) and a
dozen other charming acoustic tracks. And thanks to his commitments with the
Old 97’s, he will likely be churning out another album with that band sometime
