"Wes Miller's Hurts More to Stay CD Review"


Wes Miller has been building a reputation as one of the top bluegrass bands in the midwestern United States, and the contents of this latest production certainly proves this.

Miller’s husky vocal style is ideally suited for a bluegrass setting and stands out on such pieces as his own “Heartbroke And Lonesome,” “Little Girl and the Dreadful Snake,” and Pete Goble’s “Back to Hancock County.”
Wes’s sister, Janet Foster, contributes several pieces including the title song “Hurts More to Stay”, plus “Ole Rube” and “Ty’s Ferry Bridge.”
This is hard-driving bluegrass performed at a high-level of perfection and an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with the music of Wes Miller.

"Little Nashville Opry"

Frank Denzler
Staff Writer
A passion for music that began as a child has grown into a full-time musical career for Wes Miller. The Falmouth resident has taken his love for bluegrass music to the national level.

According to friend and producer Tom Snyder, Miller’s recordings have reached audiences in Canada, Japan, South America and Europe in recent months.

In August 2006 Miller and his band played at the Rushville Riverside Park Amphitheater to rave reviews.

Miller will be the featured artist taking to the solo showcase stage Nov. 16 at the Little Nashville Opry in Nashville, Ind.

Sticking to mainly original music, Miller credits his father for instilling the love of music in him and also gives his father and Bill Monroe the nod as a major part of the writing side of the younger Miller’s recordings.

The writing duo has already produced three nationally acclaimed CD’s: “9 Out of 10,” “Knee Deep in Grass” and “The Wes Miller Band Volume One.”

Playing live is one of the Miller’s favorite aspects of the music business. The multi-talented Miller plays a variety of instruments in the studio and on stage including the banjo, guitar, mandolin and stand-up bass.

Although the music industry as a whole has taken a number of twist and turns in recent years, according to the singer that has not had an adverse impact on traditional bluegrass music.“Bluegrass music is changing a little bit by trying to mainstream its sound. That can be heard in a number of newer artist, but music is what I do. I really prefer the traditional stuff and strive to stick to the traditional side of the street, so the trend to change hasn’t really had much effect on our music,” Miller said.
